Has anyone read
“The Bell Jar”?
A long time ago. I remember being unimpressed, but I was only 15. Maybe at an older perspective it could be better?
It’ll make you cry. Let me warn you haha!
I read it in high school (I was a senior so I was 17-18) and I remember really disliking it. I know it’s a classic and many people adore it, but, I could hardly get through it. Let’s just say I used a lot of foot notes.
This is one of my faves. I have it on my shelf and I go back to it on occasion.
Yes, in college.
Yes, last year, and I’m glad I did
Yes, great book though emotional and sad.
Yes, well worth a read a x
Yes, found it rather boring!
Yes, it’s excellent. Since I’m bipolar, I had more of a connection with it and it really hit home with me. Very deep and poignant- one of the few books that made me cry
Yes, one of the VERY few books I’ve read more than once. Love it!
Yes:) has to read it in high school and was some of the required reading I actually liked. Been thinking I should read it again now as an adult
Yes. Great book.
Yes, I can’t remember it very well. The storyline didn’t flow well for me so I just remember disjointed parts. It seemed very mundane and I didn’t get what all the hype was about. I feel like I need to reread it because it doesn’t even feel like I read it. I will say thou omg her journals are so brilliant. There’s such a spark in her thinking and descriptions and lust for life. A newer version of her journals came out recently that haven’t been edited by her husband.
A long time ago…I enjoyed it.
Yes. I agree with Sarah I read it about two months ago. Didn’t understand the hype either. Nothing stood out for me

Literally like 45 years ago. I was going through a dark teenage phase, but it was good.
