3.0 out of 5 stars Left me feeling hungry..., 14 Dec 2009
This review is from: Look Back in Hunger: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
Ok folks, this book is good, it's fine, it's an enjoyable read and it made me laugh out loud in places (not that I bought it hoping for or expecting that, but it was a bonus). BUT - it left me feeling as though I'd had the first course of a meal and then been ushered out of the restaurant before I'd even sniffed the entree, never mind looked hopefully towards the dessert trolley. I wanted MORE! I just can't shake the feeling that she didn't really want to write this book, because it is so superficial. I believe she is a private person, and fair enough for that - but as this is an autobiography I had hoped for a deeper insight into the mind of a very talented woman. It seemed to me that all the defenses were still up and there was little really shared. A shame, and ultimately unsatisfying...Jo, you're so much more succulent than this!

I was amazed to see that JB lacks any intuition or self-awareness and there was no critical assessment of any aspect or moment in her life or anybody in it, their/her motivations anything at all! It read more like an extended wikipedia entry.
