This is one the most painful books I have ever read! Wally Lamb takes you into the life of a very unruly 13 year old girl with a vicious mouth who eats because she is so unhappy and is even more distraught when she balloons up to 267 pounds by the time she goes to college. At times, her bad behaviour was shocking. And then I would want to cry with her when she was heart-broken. This book is about life; the good, the bad and the ugly.

This is, hands-down, my favorite book ever! Told in first person, you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll feel like you REALLY know Dolores and everyone she encounters. Wally Lamb has an amazing way of writing so you can see, feel, taste, smell the environment! It's painful, it's heart-wrenching, it's's just one of the best books I've ever read.

As much as I LOVE PBS, you will never see this book posted by me - I love it too much!

I read this book to my husband on a 7 day road trip and we both loved it. Lamb with with rare insight into women and into the human condition. A story about incest, mental illness, divorce, attempted suicide and finally a happy ending that comes at just the right time. The story is a little long but very well worth the read!

Unbelievable author; disturbing, funny, heartbreaking -- how this author gets into the head of an adolescent girl, I don't know. A must read.

I wanted to like this book, and I think I kind of did in the ending? Bottom line is, page after page had me raising an eyebrow or shaking my head. Some of was just too strange and unbelievable. Other times it just seemed a bit forced. Yet, imagine my surprise, when the ending sucked me in and had me rooting for Dolores.

So, was I entertained by this book? Yes. Would I recommend it to others? No.

Although I tend to be a typical historical reader..I found this book amazing! I'm not sure if it is due to the fact I could relate to the characters and their often wacky upbringing...but I found myself laughing out loud, cheering, wanting more of Wally Lamb..he really got into my brain with this one and I found myself wondering if he somehow had the ability to look into my own early years......A favorite!
