Has anyone read it?
I constantly see people shilling it, is it worth it?

I kind of hated it when I read it because I hated the protagonist, but then I read Ottessa Moshfegh's other books and realized that's just kind of how she writes. MYORR is far from her best work, if you like sort of raunchy fiction I'd recommend her book of short stories, Homesick for Another World.

It's nice. Someone in the depths of depression just refusing to live and hoping sleep will be a cure. Her friend (and their friendship) is more interesting.

it's good if you overlook the artless writing style

I enjoyed it, although I’ve also read Eileen and I liked that one more. I’m going to give Lapvona a go and see if I like it.

I read it and loved it, she's just like me in a way.

I hate reading but loved this book. It's not even a "she's just like me" thing (she's hot, so she's obviously not), it's just that it's a series of extended, colourful monologues that are insanely funny and entertaining. I never give a fuck about plot and only like character development or when books use a character as an excuse to longpost about culture (e.g. in gone girl), and this definitely does the latter.

also, Eileen's protagonist is much more relatable to your average nona if you are looking for a self insert.

Thought it was subpar. Wasted my time reading it. The fact she attacked other females passively is what did it for me

Seconding Eileen. If you want to read about a femcel who came from a shitty home and lives an insufferable mundane life, look no further. A page-turner, as well.

I wanted to like it but didnt. I guess I related to the main character but if I wanted to just see a person who resembles me in some way fester in their apartment for a year I’d look in the mirror

I wanted the main character to actually do something interesting or change. It reminded me of Sally Rooney’s books which I feel often have the same problem

nice idea but pretty boring and the tacked on ending is dumb

read lapvona, its meh.
lots of disgusting scenes and a meandering plot.
some bits are interesting and its not that long of a read but still not really worth it.
not her best.
