BlurbA vulnerable young girl wins a dream assignment working for big-time New York fashion magazine and finds herself plunged into a nightmare. An autobiographical account of Sylvia Plath's own mental breakdown and suicide attempt, The Bell Jar is more than a confessional novel, it is an honest and painful statement of what happens to a woman's aspirations in a society that refuses to take them seriously... A society that expects electroshock to cure the despair of a sensitive, questioning young artist whose search for identity becomes a terrifying descent toward madness. 216 pages.

This ook changed my life
This was very well written, it shows how one thinks when they are getting more and more depressed. I rate books based on how amazed I am when I read them, how useful or fun they are. This one made me understand depression better, but I believe it only made me feel worse about this and was not able to make me think sympathetically or try and find a way to deal in a better way with this.
