Review: Hunger A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay

This is the first novel/published work of Roxane Gay’s that I’ve read and I loved everything about it.

I loved how vulnerable the author was 100% while telling her story and how authentic she was in sharing details that a majority of us might really struggle with sharing with millions of people.

I’ve never struggled with my weight. I’ve never had to deal with people yelling horrible, cruel things at me while I walk down the sidewalk or give judgemental stares at me while I’m trying to eat at a restaurant simply because of my weight. I’ve never had to deal with that and no one close to me has either. Reading through the experiences of Roxane, I genuinely feel for her and the things she’s had to endure. I also admire her greatly and appreciate her sharing her story so openly with millions of people.

I’m really grateful that I read this book. It’s an unfiltered memoir that really needs to just be read. I feel my words/review cannot fairly do it justice.

I think everyone should read this. Absolutely.
