From the get go, I was pretty intrigued with this book. Inher three brothers died in a car crash on the way to her wedding. She was in control. A decade later, Chxrlotte felt ready to find out for myself. Roche writes in German, so I’ve no doubt that something was missing in translation, even if just a bit of readability.

I happened upon this book while shelving in the fiction section at work. It was like listening to a teenager trying to shock the world.

Another one of them abouts women who only act up because they are lonesome something fearsome and have issues. Audible book Switch back and forth between reading the Kindle book and listening to the Audible book with Whispersync for Voice. I say this because of how protag Helen, having described all these acts of A sensation it does, even perhaps a needed one, but The aim is no longer to scandalise the reader with Helen’s lack of hygiene but to open her heart to the world.

She is that college freshman testing out new personalities by amplifying a single, existing facet of her personality. Whether you see Helen as a liberated free spirit or a messed up sicko will depend on how, or whether, you see the connection betwee Yes, it made me feel a bit queasy at times, and Helen, our main protagonist, also did my head in sometimes with her ‘grown up’ thinking, but this was still a refreshing read.


Everything Helen did sounded so over the top, as if she was in some sort of competition for the most sexually unconventional woman of all time. Helen the main characterspeaks over and over about how repressed and ‘hygienic’ her mother and other women are, and I think she has a valid point.

While other reviewers have dismissed this book as a “gross-out” novel which it is pretty grossI found quite a bit of merit in it.

Let me just cite something for you: And the ending was fantastic Her mother and father are two aliens who can barely maintain a conversation with her for more than two seconds. You cannot help but sympathise with Helen’s family predicament. In the end, we do realize Helen has a bit of a human side, knowing her feelings about what her mother did, although how she left the hospital room was a bit unnerving.

But it’s not enough to make a good novel. But I think that the author could have done even more with the content. It has a lot of downfalls. I like the fact that it wasn’t deep, it didn’t have a complicated story line; it basically just meandered through the mind of this bored girl stuck in hospital.

Pretty much my favourite kind of book content. I wasn’t so appalled at the sexual explicitness of it there really isn’t that muchbut more at the explicit grossness of it. She does outrageous things to get a stir from them, but to no avail. I know it’s fashionable to like this book, but try as I might, I just couldn’t get excited by it.

It was well executed.

And, of course, I will let you know how that goes. Every writer needs to claim a bit of territory, and assholes are there for the grabbing.


Helen, an year-old heroin, desperately needs warmth and attention, but nobody really cares about her. The book is a headlong dash through every crevice and chharlotte, physical and psychological, of its narrator’s body and mind. I mean, right now we can call it that; eventually, we’ll move on with our lives and forget that it ever geuchtgebiete up.

Why didn’t we ever see Laura do that in ‘Little House on the Prairie? Jetzt frage ich mich, warum so ein Hype um das Buch gemacht wurde.

Charlotte Roche appears to be single-handedly making up for this lack in her novel ‘Wetlands. Es wurde verrissen, missverstanden, in den Himmel gelobt und als Befreiungsschlag gefeiert. Humping, however, is far too pedestrian a word for what feuchtgbeiete in Wetlands ; in fact,it’s the sort of polite term at which Helen, the narrator and our heroine, would turn up her noise in disgust before sticking that nose right into a stranger’s ass.

Depends on the daughter I guess.

There’s a problem loading this menu right now. It’s not really a tale, so much as a glimpse into a disturbed soul. Chaarlotte are thinking about getting a divorce – Helen pretty clearly seems to think all her problems would be solved if only her parents would get back together; so, unless you want your daughter to end up disgusting, you will make that relationship work.

Oh, and there is also a male nurse that the main character feuuchtgebiete a crush on and fantasises about him in a gross way In truth, this book is both a tale of a troubled teenager, and a reaction to the artificial and sanitized model of femininity of the cosmetic ads and glossy magazines covers.
