Wasted
Wasted
by Marya Hornbacher
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best written memoir of suffering from an eating disorder, 16 April 2009
This review is from: Wasted (Paperback)
Yes it might be triggering for someone suffering from an ED, but it is an epic, immensely powerful book. By far the best written, most eloquent account of the realities of having an eating disorder I have read. A book that can be read again and again. Must read.

This review is from: The Hunger Games (Paperback)
An incredible, haunting book. Not sure it would be entirely suitable for 11 year olds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to read, 16 April 2009
I have read 'Wasted' numerous times and for me 'Madness...' falls a bit short. I *loved* Mayra's writing in Wasted, but somehow Madness seemed rather contrived... I can't quite put my finger on it. It wasn't just that it was an uncomfortable read, which it absolutely and unsurprisingly was, it just wasn't as well written I didn't think. Perhaps partly because it covered some of the same ground as Wasted, I just don't know. I do wish Mayra all the very very best though, she is an amazing woman.
