Unbearable Lightness: Finished!

So I finally finished Unbearable Lightness by Portia DeRossi! It didn't take me forever and day because the book was bad or slow or anything like that... I just lost my reading train of thought for awhile. Plus things got hectic at home and school, which interfered with my reading time.

I liked this book a lot. As I said before, I do not typically read biographies, or even a lot of nonfiction for that matter. I like to be taken away from the real world when I read. That said, I did enjoy this book. I commented before about the author's complete honesty-- and this held true until the end.

My only negative is that parts of the book seemed very repetitive. I found myself feeling like I was reading the same line over and over. I think Ms. DeRossi's writing is great, I feel the editing could have been better.

Still I would recommend this book for anyone dealing with an eating disorder (your own or someone else's), or even anyone that is just a fan of Portia or even Ellen.

I gave this book 4/5 stars
