The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Bell Jar:

Following the fall out of Ester's fall into clinical depression.

My favorite Sylvia Plath quote from the book:

"It was comforting to know that I had fallen and could fall no further."

Questions to ponder while reading The Bell Jar:

How do you feel about your talents?

Have you ever been disappointed in your accomplishments?

My review of The Bell Jar:

A front-row seat to a nervous breakdown.

Dark coming-of-age angst.

This book may be very triggering to some and may not be suitable for everyone.
