3.0 out of 5 stars Honest account on annorexia, 3 July 2009
This review is from: Thin (Paperback)
This book is a real life story of graces battle with annorexia. Its honest and she tells it exactly how it is but by about half way through the book i was ready for it to end. Not only is the book too drawn out a repetative it is written in a bit of a mess. There are sections written as her now looking back then there are sections of her as she was them but speaking about herself in 3rd person and there are sections written like a script for a play and each section seemed to say the same kinds of things as the last section in its style. The book was interesting and she told her story very honestly and it was insightful but it felt a bit like she dragged it all out to make it book length and a lot of it didnt need to be in there. I think she was very brave and it must have taken a lot of stength to tell the world her secrets but i got bored after a while. Its worth a try if you want to find out what its like to have the condition but you will need patience to get to the end

For further help, support and an understanding ear in times of lost hope, please read the new inspirational memoir by Rebecca Parker covering a variety of topics (mainly eating disorders) - just click on product link below - to boost motivation towards recovery! Recommended for sufferers and families. Also, as it is written from a sufferer's mind, it is also insightful for professionals in the field. Keep going xx
