Book review: Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer
Return to Book Page. Jam has lucid thoughts but recognizes the fiction of the universe she occupies. Das wurde im Buch wolitzeer wirklich nachvollziehbar geschildert, sondern war mehr ein Umstand. For some reason I thought I had heard bad things about this so I didn’t think I was going to like it, but I actually ended up belzar enjoying it! It’s a small class devoted to reading only one author the entire semester.
And then, suddenly, I understood there was such a thing as Advanced Love. There are plenty of trees, winding paths, and kids with backpacks.
Quenell chooses to focus solely on the wor 4. I’ll definitely read more things by Meg Wolitzer in the future.

It is like a dream. Even though they were only together for 41 days, their feelings for each other were so intense, and Jam is unable to cope with her grief, which upsets her family and alienates her closest friends. Jam is one of five teenage protagonists attending the Wooden Barn, a New England boarding school for “emotionally fragile, highly intelligent students”, who meet in a class called “Special Topics in English”.
I hope though to resume my Meg-crush soon: Oct 27, karen rated it liked it Shelves: I will say that this book was surprising, like the blurb notes, wolitzre.
But in the end the only class that came to matter in all of this was English I didn’t manage to gain any emotional bond with any of the characters. Shanghai dumplings made the old fashioned way Sep 20th I just sat in class with my eyes shut, hardly listening to anything being said. But I feel like I got nothing out of this. I belzhr the bar and wolf it down, though it tastes like old compacted dirt shot through with be,zhar bits of gravel.
Belzhar is a book inspired by the life of Sylvia Plath, whom I’ve heard of but I have never paid much attention to any of her work.
I was also deeply inspired, much like the kids of Special Topics, by Mrs. It feels a bit rookie YA, explaining The Great Meaning Here to the readers who will have gotten it because they’re smart enough. The old, polished wooden floors creak and groan under our feet. She examines her attraction to him, her desire for him. The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm.

Just so so bad. View all 15 comments. Im Verlauf der Geschichte lernen wir Jems “Freunde” kennen. At times it felt rushed, especially with way the characters relationships developed. Although Jam and her friends each encounter their own memories in Belzhar, the presence of her friends gives her comfort and alleviates her loneliness.
If only we could send all of our surly, freaked-out adolescents to Belzhar for that moderately happy ending. They also confiscate your cell phone. Lowered to 2 stars.
So Jam is sent to The Wooden Barn, a boarding school for sensitive students who have issues. View all 3 comments. But this one destroyed the credibility of the protagonist, and the author too, because the whole point was Jam’s involvement with a group of kids who had experienced such tremendously horrible and heartbreaking th This book was bad.
One is there because she was in an accident and got paralyzed, another is there because she’s blaming herself for her brother’s disappearance, and then we have this guy who’s there because he found out his father cheated.
The journals are filling up fast and more and more secrets are unraveled. She can relive their old memories, feel his arms around her again, and she finally feels safe and happy. Belzhar follows the story of Jam who is heartbroken and lost after the ‘death’ of her boyfriend, Reeve.
It turns out that the loss that Jam mourns, the death of Reeve, is metaphorical, not physical. I kept reading, hoping she would redeem herself. Join the site and send us your review! Belzhar was truly magical. I am really annoyed that the author didn’t bother to fully address Jam’s circumstances. Jun 14, Jen Blair rated it did not like it. Detachment is my style, not hostility. I found out this novel is greatly inspired by Sylvia Plath’s book Bell Jar, which I have not read, but now really really want to.
