    Meet Dolores Price. She's 13, wise-mouthed but wounded, having bid her childhood goodbye. Beached like a whale in front of her bedroom TV, she spends the next few years nourishing herself with the Mallomars, potato chips, and Pepsi her anxious mother supplies. When she finally rolls into young womanhood at 257 pounds, Dolores is no stronger and life is no kinder. But this time she's determined to rise to the occasion and give herself one more chance before really going belly-up.

    Jessica says: "Really disappointing narrator!"
    "I couldn't put it down!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of She's Come Undone to be better than the print version?

    I bought the unabridged audio version, so I didn't miss a thing from the print version, which we were reading as a book club. It was a long book, so being pressed for time, I needed to be able to be able to get through it while doing things that I wouldn't be able to do while "reading" and vice versa.


    What other book might you compare She's Come Undone to and why?

    Can't think of any other book I would compare it to.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't tell you my favorite scene without it being a spoiler. But trust me, when you get to it, you'll know. It was the favorite scene of everyone in my book club who read the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I absolutely wanted to listen to it all in one sitting, it was that good. But I didn't opt for the abridged version, which I could have listened to in one sitting because I didn't want to miss any of the story. I'm glad I didn't. It was a book club selection, and I wanted to be able to fully participate in the discussion..


    Any additional comments?

    I was amazed at how well Wally Lamb is able to get into the mind and emotions of women. I'm really looking forward to reading more of his work.
