    One thought on “Diary of an Eating Disorder: A Mother and Daughter Share Their Healing Journey”

    1. One of the problems with diary-style books is that, without analysis, the events of the book can fall flat. Lack of analysis is, I think, the problem here.The writing isn't particularly interesting and the narrator isn't particularly likeable, and I think I would have gained more from the book if she'd been able to take a step back, gather up her diaries, and write something that incorporated what she'd written in her diaries but didn't rely entirely on it.

    2. Poorly written and edited. I found myself unsympathetic toward the author. I only finished reading because of a class assignment.

    3. I would have given this a 3.5 if I could, simply because Marya Hornbacher's views & descriptions seem much more realistic than this author, but she had a lot of great insight & she was a good writer.
