I liked it but some of the themes were too hard to read about. Maybe if I'd read it at some other time in my life I would have enjoyed it more.
Despite that, Sylvia Plath's writing is undoubtedly very good. ( )

The first time I read this was in high school. The only thing I remembered about it was the bloody sex scene--which terrified me. Now, many -- many years later I've reread it. I kept waiting for that scene, and as I got to the end of the book, I began to think I had mixed this book up with some other book, because shouldn't it have happened early on? Well, it is in this book, and while unpleasant for the narrator, it is on some level, humorous. Actually, a lot of the book is rather funny, I had forgotten that. The various ways she contemplates killing herself is, despite the horror of what she is doing, quite hilarious. Sylvia Plath's novel is an amazing balancing act between comedy and tragedy and well worth reading. It is worth emphasizing that what may seem trivial or laughable to most people, looks very different from inside the "bell jar" where everything is distorted and confining. Plath manages to convey this very well. ( )

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath is something extraordinary. The raw look at mental health issues and how they're perceived in times when the subject was very new, from the point of view of someone who has experienced it herself, it's great. The writing is beautiful, the concept is great, the pace was good, and even now it is relatable. A timeless semi-biographical novel, it has its faults. Some bit of racist comments and some accounts could've been described more for better understanding, it leaves space for improvement. Having some information about the author, the experience becomes better. The opinions the story gives out are mostly impressive. The emotions are on-point, the plot is interesting, it's impressive and lovely. ( )

The Bell Jar was one of my more recent purchases after sitting in my wishlist for a few years. As is fairly normal for me, I knew nothing about the book beforehand and I also knew nothing about Sylvia Plath. Due to the fact that I had heard her name many times in literary circles I assumed wrongly that she had written several books and was fairly prolific in terms of fiction. There is no special reason why I chose to read this book now, it just seemed to call me from the bookcase.

For the first 30-40 pages I really started to wonder what all the fuss was about and I felt as though things were meandering along a bit aimlessly. I found the writing engaging enough but the subject of being caught up in the parties etc didn't excite me. I decided that I would stick with it as it's a short book and I felt that I must have been missing something. I consumed the rest of the book over the course of two evenings and it left me a bit of a mess late last night. No book has ever made m cry but two have succeeded in moving me on quite an emotional level, Alone in Berlin and now, The Bell Jar. I found Ester's fall into a mental breakdown hard to read in places due to the emotion of the writing. I could really feel her pain and loosening grip on things as the story went on. The section dealing with her approaching departure from the mental hospital was particularly good.

Once I had finished the book I decided to read up a bit on Plath's life and this made the book even more poignant. I can see this being one of the few books that I read again in the future. ( )

Esther Greenwood's account of her year in the bell jar is as clear and readable as it is witty and disturbing. It makes for a novel such as Dorothy Parker might have written if she had not belonged to a generation infected with the relentless frivolity of the college- humor magazine. The brittle humor of that early generation is reincarnated in "The Bell Jar," but raised to a more serious level because it is recognized as a resource of hysteria.

It was a queer, sultry summer, the summer they electrocuted the Rosenbergs, and I didn't know what I was doing in New York.
[Foreword] You might think that classics like The Bell Jar are immediately recognized the moment they reach a publisher's office.

That's one of the reasons I never wanted to get married. The last thing I wanted was infinite security and to be the place an arrow shoots off from. I wanted change and excitement and to shoot off in all directions myself, like the colored arrows from a Fourth of July rocket. (p. 69)
The trouble was, I hated the idea of serving men in any way.
"We'll take it up where we left off, Esther," she had said, with her sweet, martyr's smile. "We'll act as if all of this were a bad dream" A bad dream. To the person in the bell jar, blank and stopped as a dead baby, the world itself is the bad dream. A bad dream. I remembered everything. I remembered the cadavers and Doreen and the story of the fig tree and Marco's diamond and the sailor on the Common and Doctor Gordon's wall-eyed nurse and the broken thermometers and the Negro with his two kinds of beans and the twenty pounds I gained on insulin and the rock that bulged between sky and sea like a gray skull. Maybe forgetfulness, like a kind snow, should numb and cover them. But they were part of me. They were my landscape. (p. 181)
I took a deep breath, and listened to the old bray of my heart: I am, I am, I am.
I began to think that maybe it was true that when you were married and had children it was like being brainwashed, and afterward you went about numb as a slave in some private, totalitarian state. (p. 70)
