Comments Even if It Kills Me

  • Sharanja

    This was the first book I read about eating disorders and it's story stayed with me for a long time. The book was well written and the main character is someone very relatable. I'm glad that the book isn't shadowed by a gooey teen romance, because the book stuck with a real issue affecting young girls today.


  • Liralen

    Theory: writers of these books in the 80s were all working from the same recipe.1) In a medium bowl, add a young teenage girl (intelligent, a good student, from a good family).2) Mix in some kind of external stressor—family pressure, academic pressure, fighting parents, etc.3) Throw in some small comment about baby fat or pants that are too tight. Stir, then let sit.4) When character begins to diet, sprinkle in a few positive comments about weight loss.5) As character keeps losing weight, begi [...]

    Mengapa saya beli buku ini: karena ada di rak obral 10 ribu Gramedia. Kebetulan juga lagi butuh bacaan ttg diet (utk referensi)Ini tentang seorang Melanie, gadis menjelang 14 tahun yang ingin menguruskan badan sekurus-kurusnya. Mulai hal pertama hingga setengah, jujur agak bosan, karena tak ada konflik, datar. Untunglah saya punya waktu sedikit luang, jadi terusin aja bacanya, sayang dah dibeli.Nah, mulai keliatanlah inti ceritanya. Dan setelah membaca sampai akhir, maka inilah hal-hal yang bisa [...]

    Esta bien. La verdad el principio es muyyyy aburrido y también me hubiera gustado que la protagonista hubiera tenido más edad.


  • Annette

    la historia me gustó mucho, debo admitir que al principio no me atrapó tanto y la protagonista era tan terca, que hacía que me caiga mal y (va a sonar mal, pero eso sentía) no quería saber que iba a pasar con su vida, pero cuando se internó en el hospital y empezó a darse cuenta de las cosas, la comprendí, ella sólo quería ser amada, aceptada, importante o al menos sentirse así, su refugio era adelgazar para conseguir algo de atención.Lo que no me gustó fue el desarrollo de un perso [...]

    I remember this book from my youth. I bought it at the school book fair and I was so excited to read it. But yeah, it's an excellent read and very thought provoking. I remember early in my childhood whenever I would read a book I would rush to my mom for further discussion or clarity. In this instance I asked my mom more detail about eating disorders. I felt that through reading(and specifically my time spent at the public library) I had the adequate exposure I needed to get through the chaos o [...]


  • Hanaa

    Ah, I read this back in 5th grade -- gave me nightmares, and it also made me feel that much more self-conscious. When I picked it up I didn't think it was about a girl suffering from an eating disorder. In fact, the title,Even if it Kills Me , made me excited. Anything with the word 'kill' got me pretty excited as a kid. I got to reading it, and parts were dull and made no sense to a 5th grader. Other parts got me paying close attention to every detail. I can't remember too much other than I fel [...]


  • Alejandro Brand

    Es una novela juvenil que toca un tema interesante como es la anorexia y nos narra la vivencia de una jovencita que cae en esta enfermedad, nos cuenta que la lleva a esto, nos muestra en su vivencia como es el proceso de esta enfermedad y como se puede llegar hasta las ultimas consecuencias en algunos casos.


  • M-Tear

    rereading this book again two and a half years later feels both good and weird. when i was younger, i remember it taking me days to get through this book, today? it took me about 2 and a bit classes to finish it. So about 90 minutes. still, i like this book, and am glad i read it again. will definitely have to read Harris' other book 'Don't Call Me Sugarbaby'.


  • Laura C.

    Ok. Este libro lo lei para una tarea de la escuela, pero sin embargo la historia llama la atencion con su titulo (me paso). Es libro facil de leer y comprender. Pero con un final que no me convencio del todo. Pero estuvo bien a mi parecer.


  • Amanda Skinner

    This gave an interesting look into the mindset of someone with anorexia. I have never thought of eating as being a frightening task. The narrator, Melanie, irritated me at first, but I warmed up to her when I saw what the author was going for.


  • Jane(Janelba)

    A thoughtprovoking insight into the world of anorexia and the victims thought processes that lead them down the road to serious illness. Handled a little bluntly on occassions whilst at other times really hitting your raw nerves of the problem.


  • Gabriela

    Muy interesante como esta historia comienza te das cuenta de que como llegar a ocultar como te sientes a diario puede causar un gran problema en tu vida y como un comentario puede destruir el mundo de otra persona sin embargo no me convenció del todo.


  • Gabrielle Henley

    i read this book for a school assinement and i really enjoyed it , the kind of book i like it was amazing and you learned what its like to have anorexia it was funny and an awesome book

  • Dany BG

    Es super interesante, despues de un tiempo creo que llegas a tener los mismos pensamientos que ella. Y se acerca mucho a la realidad, por eso me gusto :D


  • Daani Torres

    me encanto<3


  • Tami

    really love it


  • Danny

    This story is good, for the comments sometimes that says bad a person, one can fall into feeling bad about yourself, I'm glad that this book will have a good ending.


  • Gleivis Cedeño

    Un libro que cambio la manera de pensar sobre las personas con anorexia. Es una enfermedad que le puede suceder a cualquiera.


  • Aryeli

    Me pareció super tonto realmente. Pensé que sería una historia más intensa, a pesar de no ser para nada mi tipo de lectura.


  • Catie Armstrong

    It's well written I think and easy to read but I feel that anorexia is too simplified.


  • Sharlene

    re-read. ooh from my childhood. glad i finally got to read it again


  • Iveth Kimberly
