Bell Jar

Posted to What Are You Reading?

I'm sorry, but I hated The Bell Jar so much. I know it's an important book and all, but God it was so bad. Characters were so amazingly flat (men AND women). The story was just plain annoying, i was begging she killed herself after the first few chapters (yes, it's horrible, but I'm just being sincere here).
What did you like about the book? I mean, the only reason that I can think of not being able to apreciate any good things from this book is that I just missed something.
