Running in Heels
Author: Anna Maxted
To say that Babs has been my closest friend for sixteen years is rather like saying that Einstein was good at sums. We were blood sisters from the age of eleven (before my mother prized the razor out of Babs's hand). — But now Babs, noisy and as fun as a day at the beach, is getting married. And Natalie Miller, twenty-seven, senior p...  more »

Anna Maxted sure does take the long way to get to the (anticipated) conclusion in this book. I love to read and really had to force myself to plod through the musings of the self-absorbed, confused main character. Her eating disorder doesn't make me feel bad for her; I pity her. There are many wonderful books out there; don't waste your time on this one!

Didn't finish. One assumes the vapid, whining, self-obsessed heroine of this piece will eventually turn into a human being but after struggling through almost 300 pages of this 400+ page boatload, I bailed out.

Fast read. Young English crowd; Natalie's best friend is getting married and she feels alone and lost. Meets the wrong guy, loses her job and almost loses her friends but wins out in the end. Actually a good read.

Brit chick lit but also a fairly compelling and frank character study of a anorexic/ borderline bulemic who can't find perfection in her life or her relationships and seems determined but completely unaware of her intention of ruining her relationships. The eating disorders are a theme but not the only drumbeat of this novel. I really liked the relationships. Maxted does a good job, yet again.

This is a great chick lit book about a girl who had it all, messes up and finally realizes what makes her happy. I really enjoyed this book!

Not nearly as enjoyable as Maxted's "Getting Over It," but generated enough interest to keep me reading it.

Good book - a little dark and depressing at some points - but poignant.

When I first began this book, I was not sure I'd finish it, but as I read on, the content became more meaningful. I think it has a lot to say about how women care for themselves in today's world and how they define their worth. It provides good insight into the psychology of eating disorders, and it's funny too!
