Book Review: The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

Publisher: Harper Perennial Modern Classics
Date Published: October 17th 2006
Pages: 244 pages
Format: Paperback
Genre: Semi-Autobiographical
My Rating: 3 out of 5 Bubbles

We follow a young talented girl name Esther though out this book. She works in New York, she is very smart, and beautiful. Then it plummets when she becomes depressed and tries to kill her self. We see Esther grow from being good to bad and from worst to best.

I did not like this book very much especially at the beginning. Esther was so annoying and she lied about everything, sometimes even her name. I started to like it towards the end. It started to really move along and become interesting. I was very excited to read this book and I was kinda let down. It could be because I was reading it for a book report for school but overall the beginning is very slow. I would also like to bring attention to trigger warnings for self- harm and suicide.

Happy Reading,
Bubbles ❤
