    Life Changing

    I loved this book. It changed my perspective on my own life and made me think twice about times when I catch myself thinking my life is terrible. I recommend this book for anyone going through a hard time.

    go figure....

    Well, you've sure got to hand it to her. A young woman takes her excruciating pain and writes a book that all but transforms her into what she would later term a near 'rock star'. She would later go on to capitalize upon a literary project chronicling her subsequent descent into drug addiction and recovery. She should only remain well enough to maintain enough personal inferno to keep entertaining all us codependents. The publishers will likely keep this esteemed author well kept and fully enabled.

    Amazing

    I love Prozac Nation. I watched the movie first, and then read the book. Elizabeth Wurtzel totally totally captures - so many things. Her writing is very honest. I bought this book thinking it was the Lauren Slater book, Prozac Diary - but I was not disappointed. If you are looking for something to make mental illness, depression, or even growing up, a little more real and less crazy, this is a good book to pick up.

    An interesting read

    Prozac Nation is the story of a girl battling with a life of depression. The book takes the reader through her journey of ups and down. The author starts with the begging of her life and shows how she changed from a bright fun person to a dark depressed girl. She writes about her unhealthy relations ships with her father, mother and boyfriends. While the whole time making the reader wonder if this terrible depression will ever end. I suggest this book to anyone interested in real stories and traumas of young woman. If you enjoyed ¿Go Ask Alice¿ and `The Torn Skirt¿ then ¿Prozac Nation¿ should be next on your list. The author did a great job of drawing the reader in to her illness and explaining it in such a way that you can almost feel the pain. The reader ends up with a better understanding of what depression really is and how much it affects its victims.

    Depression of Early Adolescence

    Prozac Nation is the type of book that will touch your heart and change the way you view life. Elizabeth¿s memoir of her adolescence and depression that lasted ten years is inspiring to anyone who reads it. The story is brutally honest and has some vulgar language but if you can handle it you¿ll definitely enjoy it. Elizabeth is a very intelligent and strong woman who grew up ¿emotionally deprived¿ yet through her struggles she came out of her depression with hope and a will to live life to its fullest. I would recommend this book to anyone, depressed or not, especially teenagers because it gives them something to relate to so they don¿t always feel alone.
