This usually doesn't happen so late, but I actually finished the book with one day to spare. That's right, I finished the book on my train ride this morning and the book club meets tomorrow evening. Cutting it close, aren't I? Anyway, I found that I really liked the book.
What I liked was the symbolism in the book especially with the symbolism of the War. After all, isn't that what overcoming an eating disorder is, a fight with the war within yourself? I know I don't have any personal experience to draw from, but that's how I always thought it was. What I also liked, was that just because she beat War doesn't always mean the battle is over and that overcoming that part of this journey, gave our protagonist the strength she needed to face her true demons and not just the mythical ones surrounding her.
I can't wait to see what the other girls think. I do have the sequel Rage and will be reading it soon enough. This one is about a cutter who becomes War.
