I finished reading Grace Bowmans story about her struggle with anorexia today and although I have read lots of books about that subject, this book is truly outstanding, as it is so inspiring (in a positive way) and touching. Besides the book "Wasted" it is the best book about anorexia ever written. However you canŽt really compare "Wasted" and "Thin" as they are very different in their style of writing. Bowman has really great skills in writing, sheŽs not only a writer, but a poet, too. As such I think that not only people interested in anorexia will enjoy this book immensely and understand a lot more about life in general and life for young women. I really highly recommend this book.
A grippingly honest account of life with anorexia nervosa, A Shape of My Own is Grace's hearbreaking, shocking and, finally, inspirational memoir. An extraordinary story, it is also a common one - is there a woman in the western world who has a normal relationship with food? A compulsive read, essential for anyone hoping to understand more about eating disorders and overcoming addiction.
Wirklich sehr lesenswert! Und ich relativ einfach geschrieben - sehr verständlich ohne dass man ein Wörterbuch braucht oder sonstiges (solang man über einen guten englischen wortschatz verfügt) Hab es innerhalb kürzester Zeit gelesen - wirklich sehr fesselnd das Buch. Nur zu empfehlen!
