Inhaltsangabe

Read by the critically acclaimed actress Maggie Gyllenhaal. 

When Esther Greenwood wins an internship at a New York fashion magazine in 1953, she is elated, believing she will finally realise her dream to become a writer. But in between the cocktail parties and piles of manuscripts, Esther's life begins to slide out of control. She finds herself spiralling into depression and eventually a suicide attempt as she grapples with difficult relationships and a society which refuses to take women's aspirations seriously. 

Sylvia Plath's groundbreaking semiautobiographical novel offers an intimate, honest and often wrenching glimpse into mental illness. The Bell Jar broke the boundaries between fiction and reality and helped cement Sylvia Plath's place as an enduring feminist icon. Celebrated for its darkly humorous, razor-sharp portrait of 1950s society, it continues to resonate with readers today as a testament to the universal human struggle to claim one's rightful place in the world.

maggie gyllenhaal

Sylvia Plath is an amazing author and this classic is one that has to be read! I stumbled upon this because of my english major and read the book in university, but what really blew me away this time is Maggie Gyllenhaal‘s performance! She does not read, she acts with so much emotion and talent i would definitely recommend listening to THIS version! (:

not a book to make you happier

It felt like I lived it myself. The description took me into the world of this girl. Also the voice of Maggie Gyllenhaal made it surreal. Although it was an interesting experience this book is not one which will leave you feel happy afterwards.
