I read this book when it was first released its very disturbing I wouldn t know how many stars to give it actually I never like to rate memoirs in the first place I can t give it 5 stars I can t give it 1 star so I went for 3 but I ll never forget the story Eating disorders are a disease Marya Hornbacher does not sugar coat anything People who have suffered anorexic or been a parent of a child lived this life deeply may not want to read this book NO SOLID a I read this book when it was first released its very disturbing I wouldn t know how
3.5 starsI once had an eating disorder several years ago, so I appreciate Marya Hornbacher s unflinching honesty in Wasted She holds nothing back in this memoir, sharing the immense pain that accompanies anorexia and bulimia the preoccupation with calories that takes over your life, the obsession with food that steals your energy from your passions, and the shame and guilt that comes with not feeling strong enough to resist your disorder Published in 1997, Wasted may have very well served as 3.5 starsI once had an eating disorder several years ago, so I appreciate Marya Hornbacher s unflinching honesty in Wasted She holds nothing back in this memoir, sharing the immense

Marya is a fantastic fucking memoirist There are a couple reasons this is all theincredible First, that she d found such a voice and command of prose at 23, and second, that a 23 year old would have lived a life worth writing about The language is appropriately jagged, with short, sharp sentences, embodying a sparse, terrifying narrative of the scattered moments recalling her gradual and deliberate self destruction.She spares no one, including herself, in her examination of the causes a Marya is a fantastic fucking memoirist There are a couple reasons this is all theincredible First, that she d found such a voice and command of prose at 23, and second, that a 23 year old would have lived a
I m ambivalent about this book Certainly, at times, she pulled no punchesyet at other times, still a bit under the sway of her disorder, she seemed to be bragging about her successes in the extremes of her eating disorder She wasn t really healthy yet, and that came through in ways she probably never intended In many ways, it helped me understand how eating disorders work In other ways again, I m sure unintentional on the author s part , I began to understand how eating disorders and p I m ambivalent about this book Certainly, at times, she pulled no punchesyet at other times, still a bit under the sway of her disorder, she seemed to be bragging about her successes in the extremes of her eating disorder She wasn t really healthy yet, and that came through in ways she probably never intended In many ways, it helped me understand how eating disorders work In other ways again, I m sure unintentional on the author s part , I began t
God, there is nothingtedious than a personal narrative that just goes on and on and on I admire Ms Hornbacher s willingness to put everything out there, but I find much of what she writes terribly suspect Reading it from a non eating disordered perspective, I had to wonder if people who had been through this picked it up and thought wow, that s just what I went through or hey, what a good idea, I never thought of doing that Plus I m not sure if the fact she s not yet over her illne God, there is nothingtedious than a personal narrative that just goes on and on and on I admire Ms Hornbacher s willingness to put everything out there, but I find much of what s
