5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely incredible 9 Oct 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
captivating story that offers a reader a dialogue to live by. growing up is hard - but getting a sense of yourself is harder. Medoff takes on subject matter that is not only difficult but timely. As we rejoice with Frannie, feel for Shelley, or want to dine with Marsha, Hunger Point wraps up all of what it means to love another person and, just as important, love yourself. Three million cheers for Medoff - cant wait to see what else is on her plate.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read--well worth the effort in the end. 17 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Part I" of this book felt forced and contrived. I was rolling my eyes as I read through the cliches and corny phrases that real people do not actually use. Another annoying habit of the author is the unbelievable amount of cursing in this book--practically every character says the f-word every couple of pages! However, I felt that Part II of the book made up for the awkward beginning. Without giving the plot away, I will state that the author provides a unique perspective on anorexia--particularly with respect to how friends and families are touched by the individual sufferer. Some sections from the second-half are amazing and incredibly well-written. As I was reading, I felt that only someone who has intimately experienced disordered eating could express and convey such complicated issues, and my hunch was confirmed when I later read that Medoff herself once endured and then conquered her eating disorder.

This book touched me in so many places- I think everyone can relate to Frannie and even Shelly at some time- it made me laugh out loud and it made me ache inside at times- but it was very inspirational and basically I couldnt put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Highly Recommend This Novel 16 Jan 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
From beginning to end, I was so interested in these characters and their stories. They became very real to me. For me this book is sort of a snapshot in how it portrays what some people do (so often women in particular) in their search to find love, feel loved, and gain control in their lives. Each character was searching in their own way and I related to them all. The first time I read it I was overcome with sadness, the second time I was struck by the humor and warmth. I look forward to this author's next novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars i'm left awe-struck 31 May 1998
By A Customer
this book was unbelieveable. I was through the book before I knew it had bugun. I could barley put it down. I read it on a 26 hour train ride and was up all night reading. The book grasped me and held me untill the very last page. The moment I finished the last page, i turned to page one and started reading it all over again. A great book all around
