She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb is an amazing novel that follows the life of a woman named Dolores Price through age 4 to age 40 as she overcomes many obstacles in her life, such as her parents’ divorce, being made fun of for being overweight, not being the smartest person in the world, being depressed, and generally being an introverted person due to her strained home life. After dealing with prejudice her whole life, being raped, losing her whole family, and a failed marriage, Dolores proves to the audience that even after having a hard life, overcoming insecurities and finding positivity in life is possible. She’s Come Undone is on the longer side, and the story seems to drag on in places. For these reasons many give negative reviews, but if you take the time to read the whole story, it will be worth it in the end. When the novel was first published in 1992, it wasn’t very popular until Oprah Winfrey added it to Oprah’s Book Club and openly praised it on her talk show. This book was not intended for younger audiences due to mentions of rape and other mature topics. I would give She’s Come Undone a 4.5 out of 5 stars for being a truly amazing and inspiring story about loving yourself, fighting your demons, and finding your place in the world.
