Thank you to the wonderful people at Simon & Schuster who offered me an e galley of this book. TITLE: All Fall Down AUTHOR: Jennifer Weiner GENRE: Contemporary Fiction RATING:
I have read all of Weiner's books and frankly, I was getting upset at the direction her books were taking - another author who has "jumped off" the chick lit boat.
I take it all back after reading All Fall Down. Wow! this book is touching and left me with such a strong impression. I knew I would love it from the very first words ....and I knew that I loved the plot of this one - addiction and what it can do to a "normal" woman who has a life that is simply overwhelming her.
Written with tenderness and a harsh reality, this book was a must read that is extremely difficult to read. I love how Weiner takes the every day and shows us how things can be hurtful in an "every day manner".
I can't say this book was entertaining because its such a difficult topic, but I will say that it was completely engrossing.
Additionally, I have to speak up and say that while Weiner's books are ALL excellent, I do miss her more light hearted books like Good in Bed, where the writing was lighter but still carried a message.
