Review: Unbearable Lightness

Unbearable LightnessUnbearable Lightness by Portia de Rossi

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

God, I'm such a sucker for memoirs and eating disorder books.

The reviews I read indicated that this was poorly written. Maybe I've just read a ton of memoirs, but I didn't think it was poorly written at all. In fact, de Rossi does such a good job writing in the present tense that it must have been really painful to write this book. Maybe it was cleansing?

This book, like pretty much any about the subject matter, is triggering to some extent. I don't know if her memoir would be that helpful to someone struggling with anorexia; however, it might be really helpful to the families and loved ones.
