review 1: I won this book through good reads and was very excited to start it. I think the author did a good job setting up the "invalidating environment" that seems to foster borderline personality disorder, and also illustrated the ambivalence toward relationships that is so common with this disorder. However, I found the main character rather unlikeable (which I think was the authors intent). The character failed to grow, develop, or change over the course of the book, which is probably realistic but detracted from making it an enjoyable read. All that said, I'm not sure where I stand with this book. It could have used another pass by a good editor and I can't say I enjoyed reading it, but the discription of the disorder was pretty well done.
review 2: Inked is n
... moreot a typical book in any sense of the word. The main character is captivating and I hesitate to use that word, but she really is. The story itself is potent and that makes it a page turner. If you have ever known someone with Border Line Personality Disorder then you will connect with Tori and see the all too obvious signs that she lives with this chronic and often life changing condition. It is interesting to see how Tori chose to cope with her pain. This book is a little bit like Girl Interrupted and if you have any BPD family members you will want to read this book. It's a quick read and hits home with it's undiluted subject matter. less
