forgot to mention i finished the book
She’s Come Undone — I did finish it, actually about 3 weeks ago or so and really didn’t find it to be anything special, and wonder where all the hype came from (other than the fact that Oprah told people to be hyped about it). The “symbolism” beats you over the head — okay, overweight girl struggles for her life — do you really have to equate that to a beached whale? While the story was good enough the book as a whole was forced and contrived. One aspect I did enjoy is that I found I couldn’t picture Dolores at all for the first part of the book. I did notice how much she was eating, and realized that I couldn’t get an image of her in my head, but then had a perfect one the minute that her weight is revealed. That was well done, otherwise, I’d say it’s a definite airplane book.
