2.0 out of 5 stars
Disappointing, 16 April 2007
After reading Welcome to my Country and really enjoying it, I was expecting Prozac Diary to be of similar quality. However, it is not. I kept expecting the book to improve in the next chapter, but it only got worse. Her story is vague and goes off on tangents which are not very interesting or relevent. This results in the book having no coherence, structure or impact. Also, her writing style seems forced. In Welcome to my Country, I enjoyed the poetic writing - it worked, but in Prozac Diary it is contrived and adds nothing.
As another reviewer has said - read Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel instead, as it is much much better and the follow-up book More, Now, Again, which is also excellent.
