Lauren T. (ltranz) reviewed Starving: A Personal Journey Through Anorexia on
Helpful Score: 4
This book is a complete waste of time. It doesn't follow any logical order, and offers no real insight to her disorder. It's incredibly boring, and I can't figure out why she even bothered writing about her disorder. She merely quotes the opinions of other authors, such a Marya Hornbacher of Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia and explains why she agrees. It's a little pretentious of her to assume anyone cares about her opinion in the slightest. Also, she dotes too much on god throughout the entire novel, and it's incredibly annoying. Some people are into that, and that's fine, but it made the book nearly impossible for me to get through.
