    Story
    (264)

    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"
    "Recommended"
    Overall

    While clearly written by a celebrity - keeping her cards close to her vest - still recommended. The issue of women's body image and hollywood's impact on us and it's stars is an important one that needs to be discussed more. I enjoyed the reading as well.

    I have been standing on the side of life, watching it float by. I want to swim in the river. I want to feel the current. So writes Mamah Borthwick Cheney in her diary as she struggles to justify her clandestine love affair with Frank Lloyd Wright. Four years earlier, in 1903, Mamah and her husband, Edwin, had commissioned the renowned architect to design a new home for them.

    Eva Gannon says: "Fascinating"
    "Story is probably good"
    Overall

    But the reader's voice is so robotic sounding. It really takes away from my enjoyment of the text.

    Followers of the New Temple of God - all well-bred, well-heeled young women - are becoming targets for murder. With Sherlock Holmes at her side, Mary Russell plunges headlong into a dangerous investigation of life behind the sinister temple walls.

    Karen says: "A Monstrous Regiment of Women"
    "Good Book"
    Overall

    Not in love with the reader's take on the main character's accent, but she does a good job with the many voices/characters portrayed by Mary Russel and Holmes.
