it was amazing
bookshelves: top-five-favorites

No book has ever moved me like this one has. And it didn't even move me in a "good" way. By the end of the book I felt like I too was in a Bell Jar. I felt trapped, I felt that inner hate. It's rare for a book to so completely enfold these feelings, it's even more rare for a book like this to be widely read. If you read this I really recommend taking it in spurts because if you read it straight through it will weigh on you. I still carry this book on my soul.
