The Bell Jar

fiction, Novel by Sylvia Plath


Esther Greenwood is brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under—maybe for the last time. In her acclaimed and enduring masterwork, Sylvia Plath brilliantly draws the reader into Esther's breakdown with such intensity that her insanity becomes palpably real, even rational—as accessible an experience as going to the movies. A deep penetration into the darkest and most harrowing corners of the human psyche, The Bell Jar is an extraordinary accomplishment and a haunting American classic.

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.
