A ruggedly handsome male lead. A quiet beautiful blond surrounded by mystery. A venomous woman devoted only to herself.

And the company's doctor who knew from the outset that something was amiss, but had no idea how to deal with it. Go with them on a journey filled with terror and death to Bear Island.

Helpful Score: 1


The Bell Jar is a novel about the events of Sylvia Plath's 20th year, about how she tried to die and how they stuck her together with glue. It is a fine novel, as bitter and remorseless as her last poems, the kind of book Salinger's Franny might have written about herself ten years later, if she had spent those ten years in hell.
