  • Lamb does it again...

    Jan 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lamb is not afraid to write about real life situations.
    Cons: The ending could have been better

    Summary: My friend lend me this book and shared that she was so touched. I thought that she was being overemotional, but at the end of each chapter, I got emotional. This book was a representation of many women, who been through so much dramatic issues in their ... read more

  • She's Pulled Me In

    Jan 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: excellent reading!
    Cons: it's difficult to put down

    Summary: This is easily one of my favorite books. It's the kind that once you start reading, you can't stop. I found myself stealing little moments here and there to see where the story was going. Wally Lamb's writing style is unique and fresh and he 'write's ... read more

    Jan 24, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Insightful, compelling, disturbing and triumphant
    Cons: N/A

    Summary: I just finished reading another epinion on Wally Lamb's "She's Come Undone" and the comments made were so far from my own feelings I felt compelled to write an epinion of my own. Dolores is lost. In any sense of all senses, she has ... read more

  • Amazing story!

    Jan 24, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Funny, easy reading. Compelling!
    Cons: NONE

    Summary: Wally Lamb's first bestseller is amazing! I started the book two different times, finding myself unable to put it down the second time. The first couple of chapters were a little slow moving, which is why I stopped reading it originally. But, after ... read more

    Jan 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: wonderful writing
    Cons: can be very intense

    Summary: Long before Oprah even considered having a book club, I picked up She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb one fall day at my library. I loved the cover-a girl standing on a beach, rope all around her. I just knew I had to read this book. So I read the ... read more

  • I don't get it.

    Jan 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: This book kept me interested enough to finish it.
    Cons: A VERY depressing book.

    Summary: This book was written well, but that wasn't enough. I was very surprised to find that it was written by a man. It was very much "from a woman's" perspective. It kept my interest. I wanted to keep reading to see what was going to happen to ... read more

  • She's Number One!

    Jan 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: well written/captivating
    Cons: written by a man?

    Summary: Wally Lamb writes another great book! I had just finished "I Know This Much is True" and really didn't think Mr. Lamb could write two great books, but--was I wrong. "She's Come Undone" is one of the best written books I have read in ... read more

  • liked it!

    Jan 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: funny
    Cons: felt bad for laughing at some of it!

    Summary: How on earth a man wrote this book I will never know. I thought that even though it was almost too crazy sometimes it really related to every woman I have known in some small way. It was so engrossing and really tragic in a lot of ways but with such a ... read more

  • not so great

    Jan 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: interesting and well written
    Cons: negative

    Summary: I liked the way this book was written, but I didn't like what it was about. I had to read this book for my English class and I liked the plot in the beginning, but it got boring. It was just all about how Dolores's life was bad. It was similar to other ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great book
    Cons: Foul language at times

    Summary: She's Come Undone is a wonderful book. Any young girl or women who has even been over eight or felt like an outcast should really read this book. It tugs at your heart strings and at times make you feel as though someone was writting about thing you have ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent writing and story
    Cons: Can be disturbing at times

    Summary: My mother was the first person to suggest this book to me. As an English Lit major I do not get much time to read for "fun" so I am pretty choosy about what I read turning my off time. Anyway, my mom said "You are going to love this ... read more

  • She Has Come Undone, But Only On A Superficial Level

    Jan 16, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: An easy read and interesting subject matter
    Cons: Lack of intimate character development leaves the reader unable to truly understand or identify with the main character

    Summary: Although "She's Come Undone" was Wally Lamb's first novel, I must admit that I read "I Know This Much Is True" first. I found the second novel so profound and engaging (see my review) that I couldn't wait to read this one. I am ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It catches you and draws you in.
    Cons: It ended.

    Summary: This book just grabs you and draws you in. I purchased it on a Saturday afternoon and finished it early Sunday morning. The main character Delores is such an unlikely heroine, but that's what she is. She goes from being annoying and whiny to a really ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: This book is touching, thought-provoking, and brilliant.
    Cons: None

    Summary: I stumbled across "She's Come Undone" without realizing that it was part of Oprah's Book Club, and brought it home based solely on the summary printed on the back cover. I've never been more moved by a book in my life, and I recommend this to ... read more

    Jan 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good Storylines
    Cons: The book drags on

    Summary: The only reason I got this book, "She's Come undone", by Wally Lamb, was because of the big deal everybody made about it. People said that the author was so good at showing female emotions...and all that. I tried to like this book, but I ... read more

  • Perhaps the best book of abstract fiction ever.

    Jan 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: enthusiastic, genuine, unique, emotional, heart warming
    Cons: confusing, sometimes out of order

    Summary: "She's Come Undone," by Wally Lamb, is an extraordinary book. As a male author, Lamb manages to capture the essence of his main female character extremely accurately. I've read hundreds of books, good and bad, and "She's Come ... read more

    Pros: Very deep, insightful look at growing up in a difficult world.
    Cons: Can't think of a thing.

    Summary: What doesn't kill you makes you strong. That is probably the only thing Nieztsche ever said that I agree with. I am not sure if I could have survived half of what Delores survived and continued on the upward path. I agree with anyone who has ... read more
