On the positive side, I did find the book very insightful and could relate to her thoughts and anxieties very well. She is a wonderful writer and I wish her all the best on her road to recovery
Overall she is not a very likeable person, her writing is repetitive, tedious and quite shockingly poor for someone who read Eng Lit at Oxford. Not to mention the bragging about being a functioning anorexic, it is crystal clear she is not recovered and following in Hornbachers footsteps she has only succeeded in glamorising anorexia.
It was a complete waste of money and i really dont recommend you buy this book - especially if you have an ED because it gives no motivation whatsoever to recover.
It's a self obsessed, draining and vapid book.
If she thinks that this book shows that she is recovered then she is deluded. Having experienced and recovered from anorexia myself, between the lines you can quite clearly see that her thinking is still affected my anorexia. I almost felt like she was bragging about how little she could and did and would eat in some areas, whilst not remaining conscious of triggers throughout the book.
I find it more of a shame that she believes she is better when she is not, and it is quite irresponsible to publish a book about having recovered from an ED as if being a role model for those suffering, when really, this is not quite true. I feel for her, but this book is exceptionally triggering and not a healthy nor hopeful memoir of experiencing anorexia, and coming through on the other side.
If your'e trying to recover and you want to read this, I definitely don't recommend it until you're very strong and resilient to triggers.
