Reviews

"Best known for her sense of humor, Weiner's raw new novel proves she is equally as fluent in poignancy. A searing, no-holds-barred look at an ordinary woman whose life spirals out of control."--Jodi Picoult "#1 New York Times bestselling author "
"Weiner has taken a complicated, nuanced, and fraught subject and given us a narrative both entertaining and enlightening."
--New York Journal of Books
"All Fall Down is Weiner's best book yet. Her portrayal of rehab is sharp, sad, and mordantly funny... Weiner's account of Allison's hard-won turnaround is pitch-perfect. Allison is a memorable character wisecracking her way through despair. Her rock bottom, when it comes, is well-drawn and convincing."--Philadelphia Inquirer
"Compulsively readable. Weiner's skill is in the specifics. There's no doubt she knows how to deliver a certain kind of story, and well."--New York Times Book Review
"All Fall Down is a witty, realistic criticism on the modern age and how difficult it can be to balance family, career and self, and how quickly everything can spiral out of control. Allison Weiss is a great reminder that people have weaknesses and that superheroes don't exist. Weiner fans will be happy to find this as one of her best works. For those who aren't familiar with her, All Fall Down is a great place to start."--Boston Herald
"Jennifer Weiner's books should be labeled a controlled substance. She creates relatable heroines with everyday worries, such as losing weight or finding a mate. Add her clever pop-culture references, girlfriend conversations over goblets of wine and her trademark self-deprecating humor and you have sure-to-please novels that hook you in and never let go. Weiner's storytelling talents are estimable. Just like Allison pops a Vicodin (or two or four) to get through the morning, you will read one more chapter, and oh, come on, what would one more hurt? I deserve this pill, er, page. And you are gone."--USA Today
"Reading one of Jennifer Weiner's contemporary novels of manners is a bit like biting into an apple. The experience is full of flavor, more crisp than juicy, and refreshingly tart."--The Baltimore Sun
"Weiner, who is a master at creating realistic characters, is at her best here, handling a delicate situation with witty dialogue and true-to-life scenes. Readers will be nodding their heads in sympathy as Allison struggles to balance being a mother, a daughter, and a wife while desperately just wanting to be herself. Weiner is one of the reigning queens of contemporary women's fiction, and her latest is sure to hit the best-seller lists. The "hot-topic" quality of the story line will only boost readership even further."--Booklist, starred review
"An absolutely heartbreaking read that will leave readers haunted. Great for book clubs or for anyone trying to understand a loved one's addiction."--Library Journal, starred review
"Weiner's sly portrayal of family, entitlement and recovery culture is a romp - with an edge."--Good Housekeeping
"Dark humor and a surprise twist."--People Style Watch
"The everymom heroine in this novel becomes a hard-core pill addict-and it's impossible to look away."--Glamour
