Ok, so admittedly I've become a bit of a Wally Lamb addict after reading "I Know This Much Is True", and so my opinion of "She's Come Undone" might be a little bit biased...

But wow.

I thought this book was amazing. Even though the character was so different from me, I felt like I could completely relate to practically everything she said, felt or went through. Even though her personality was frustrating and infuriatingly difficult, it made it all that much more engaging. I give Mr. Lamb props for being able to write a female perspective from every point of a girl's life as convincingly as he did.

Have any of you read it? What did you think? Personally, my favourite thing about Wally Lamb's writing style so far is that all of his characters have such distinct voices. That when you're reading, it's like the character themselves are telling you their stories.

While I liked "I Know this Much is True" better, this one is definitely in my top 100 books of all time.
