    Story
    (215)

    In this searing, unflinchingly honest book, Portia de Rossi captures the complex emotional truth of what it is like when food, weight, and body image take priority over every other human impulse or action. She recounts the elaborate rituals around eating that came to dominate hours of every day, from keeping her daily calorie intake below 300 to eating precisely measured amounts of food out of specific bowls and only with certain utensils. When this wasn’t enough, she resorted to purging and compulsive physical exercise, driving her body and spirit to the breaking point.

    Dawn says: "Beautifully Sad"
    "Negative Self Talk"
    Overall

    Haunting... A very truthful tell on the negative self talk, which accompanies disordered eating behaviors.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Complex female central character


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    She grows on you. Not that she is bad to start off with at the beginning of the book. Its just I had read another review of the audiobook before I bought it that said the narrator sounded too mature to perform this book. I think McCormick does a great job and her voice fits well for the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I was on the fence about whether or not to read the series. I finally got this audiobook listened to it and went straight into listening to Catching Fire! Recommended Read

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    A must read!!!! Seriously no matter your age: 14 to 118 years old will likely enjoy this book. If your on the fence, download it, read it, it is worth it!!! I can't wait for her to write other books!
