    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I really, truly, honest to god am not exaggerating when I say this is one of the worst books I ever read while I was an adult Lamb hasn t written an actual story so much as he s bound together a series of advice columns and chat show episodes dressed up in vague narrative form The girl s father leaves Then she gets raped Then she gains weight Then her roommate is mean to her Then she hooks up with a bad boyfriend Then somebad things happen to her after that Andstill after tha I really, truly, honest to god am not exaggerating when I say this is one of the worst books I ever read while I was an adult Lamb hasn t written an actual story so much as he s bound together a series of advice columns and chat show episodes dressed up in vague narrative form The girl s father leaves Then she gets raped Then she gains weight Then her roommate is mean to her Then she hooks up with a bad boyfriend Then somebad things happen to her after that Andstill after that And on and on, ad nauseam Someone should have told Lamb that dreaming up parade of horribles isn t the same as writing a novel Save yourself 500 pages and watch a couple episodes of Dr Phil instead Awful, awful, awful book If I could give it less than one star, I would.Addendum Every so often, someone comes along and flags this review as having spoilers Complaining about spoilers in this review is, not to put too fine a point on it, really stupid Most of the plot points I mention here are either in the actual cover copy of the book, in the Goodreads summary, or occur somewhere within the first ten pages or so The rest are so vague e.g., hooking up with a bad boyfriend a plot point that probably occurs in some form in, oh, half of the books ever written that if you consider them spoilers, I m not really sure why you read book reviews at all.Further addendum If you re about to complain about spoilers in this review, please see comment 56 below

    This book sucked A What the hell does a MAN know about writing about a fat girl s life NOTHING Thus making whole book wrong B Obviously didn t research anything about the main character, places her in situations she would NOT be in at the weight prescribed What did he actually ASK WOMEN what they weigh Guess what moron, they LIE A 200lb woman can still fit in a car, loser I could go on forever The only reason I even read this book was because I forgot a book on an airplane and was off This book sucked A What the hell does a MAN know about writing about a fat girl s life NOTHING Thus making whole book wrong B Obviously didn t research anything about the main character, places her in situations she would NOT be in at the weight prescribed What did he actually ASK WOMEN what they weigh Guess what moron, they LIE A 200lb woman can still fit in a car, loser I could go on forever The only reason I even read this book was because I forgot a book on an airplane and was offered this When choosing between reading ANYTHING and watching yet ANOTHER Julie Roberts movie in flight, I will chose the book I should ve watched the stupid movie I want those precious moments of my life back The only reason I will give this one star is because it has accomplished the act of being shaped like a book

    I have to wonder if any of Lamb s children were teenage girls while he was writing this novel If not, then I m sure his wife had her brain picked apart to help him write this novel Why Lamb so captures the teenage girl spirit in this book or at least the spirit of a crushed and ruined teenage girl that it s hard to believe this wasn t written by a woman.Delores s story is moving and has something we can all relate to, especially those of us who have ever gone through a trauma or depression I have to wonder if any of Lamb s children were teenage girls while he was writing this novel If not, then I m sure his wife had her brain picked apart to help him write this novel Why Lamb so captures the teenage girl spirit in this book or at least the spirit of a crushed and ruined teenage girl that it s hard to believe this wasn t written by a woman.Delores s story is moving and has something we can all relate to, especially those of us who have ever gone through a trauma or depression But one thing that s different about Delores is that you can t pity her She doesn t want that, and Lamb has not written her that way At times you find yourself wanting to scream at her to wake up and do something With the exception of Delores s college companions most all the other characters she encounters are fully developed and interesting They all appear in Delores s life for a reason, enriching her and teaching her a lesson, though not always a lesson Delores learns from.I don t feel that this is a book that I can criticize this book as much as I should She s Come Undone is for anyone struggling in their life In a way it will help you realize that you re not alone, other people have been through shit too, and you can overcome it and be stronger in the end And even if you haven t been through anything difficult which I find hard to believe you should still read this book, because it s still a really good book.And now, I m going to end this because I have forgotten what else I want to say I suppose I ve said enough though, and I hope you will read this book if you haven t or tell me what you thought if you have

    This is one of my all time favorite books I just recently reread the book and fell in love all over again It had been some time since I read the book and felt I should refresh my memory since I recommend it to so many She s Come Undone is the story of a troubled teenage girl growing into a woman, her struggles and the ways in which she decides to cope with them She puts on a tough exterior but inside is as soft as the marshmallows she finds comfort in.Dolores is plagued with heartache, hurt This is one of my all time favorite books I just recently reread the book and fell in love all over again It had been some time since I read the book and felt I should refresh my memory since I recommend it to so many She s Come Undone is the story of a troubled teenage girl growing into a woman, her struggles and the ways in which she decides to cope with them She puts on a tough exterior but inside is as soft as the marshmallows she finds comfort in.Dolores is plagued with heartache, hurt and uncertainty As a teenager it seems that every person she allows close to her hurts her She withdraws herself inward and finds comfort in the television and food, losing all interest in the outside world By doing so she createsproblems for herself, mentally and physically.When she heads off to college, extremely overweight, she finds out how cruel the world can really be, which sends her even farther down the spiral Eventually she hits rock bottom After a couple of years of treatment she decides to create her own destiny To take control of her life and make it what she wants.At first things were working out for her and it seemed she had the life she always longed for We all know that it never happens that way, there is always a snafu, and things do go south for Dolores But you know what, it just raises her higher She finally finds herself and makes peace with her past.There is no need for you to have experienced all the hurt, heartache and tragedy as Dolores to empathize with her, all you have to be is a woman The most remarkable aspect of the book is that it was not written by a woman The very first time I read the book I kept checking the cover to make sure it was a man that was writing it Some how, and I am not sure how, Wally Lamb has totally tapped into how it feels to be a teenage girl, an abused girl, a girl coming into a woman, a woman having her heart broken for the first time by the man of her dreams, and a woman making it on her own after all of these things.Truly an incredible book Buy it for all the women in your life

    I m amazed by how many people hated this book I had mixed feelings about it Yes, the characters and situations were godawful, and at times it wasthan a little contrived A lot of people on this forum said it was hard to believe that so many horrible things could happen to one person that I don t think is true I have known people who have had that many horrible things happen to them But some of the situations were pretty far fetched But I remember finding this book utterly fascinatin I m amazed by how many people hated this book I had mixed feelings about it Yes, the characters and situations were godawful, and at times it wasthan a little contrived A lot of people on this forum said it was hard to believe that so many horrible things could happen to one person that I don t think is true I have known people who have had that many horrible things happen to them But some of the situations were pretty far fetched But I remember finding this book utterly fascinating and being unable to put it down I m not even sure why it was such a horrifying book, but I guess it had a train wreck quality to it I still remember this book so well even though I read it years ago Even though I didn t relate to it personally that much, something about that book just stayed with me long after I read it
