Friday Fuhgettaboutit is a meme of my own creation on occasional Fridays to discuss a book I've given up on in the past or present.
She's Come Undone- Wally Lamb
I know this is some people's favourite book and for this, I apologize. I tried to like this. I really did. I had heard good things about the book and it was an Oprah’s book club choice, so I took a chance on it. I heard that Wally Lamb’s work can be like a love/hate relationship. I read up to the end of Part 1 (of 3) and while I found a couple of choice scenes amazing, it took me a while to get used to the style and wasn’t all that impressed to be honest. There is so much buildup to the predictable end of Part I that I thought everything else was just an excuse to get to this turning point. The theme is typical of Oprah’s book club selections. I think Tori Morrison writes equally challenging but stronger stories of marginalized women.
I'd like to know if anyone felt the same (just I don't feel alone in this!), or if you did stick with it and/or like it, is it worth plowing through? I still have a copy tucked away somewhere and remember enough of Part I to not have to reread it...It's something I debate every once in a while and I'd like to know what you think.
