Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath, 1963, United States, NOVEL

"...She is given shock treatment—"a great jolt [that] drubbed me till I thought my bones would break and the sap fly out of me like a split plant"—which causes her to wonder what she has done to deserve this...Her awareness throughout her ordeal that many of the accepted realities of life are not her realities makes her struggle even more heart-wrenching..."

(H.S., p. 289)

This is one of the books I lived on in my teens and find myself re-orienting to in my 'adult' life. Still, I'm a long way from considering another re-read of it

"Once in a while someone comes along whose voice is so distinctive that it changes the way people talk."
