Audio books have been a fairly new find of mine. (Okay I've been in love for two years but in the grand scheme of things its new.) I wasn't so sure about it at first but where I have really fallen in love with the practice of listening to books is when they are read by the author. I cannot stop listening to memoirs for this reason.
There are times that a book enters your life when you need to hear it and you know that you and this book will be connected forever. Such is the story of this book and me. Of course the only problem I have with Audible books is that I can't underline them. It just means I know I will listen to this book over and over
In many ways I have absolutely no connection or similarities with this character. I am not an alcoholic. I have not had an eating disorder. I don't think I have had a particular addictive personality. I have however doubted my role in the universe. I have doubted myself. I have been worried about how I fit in the world. About whether I am putting myself on display or sharing my real self. I have thought about the struggles to be a mom and a wife and a woman.
This book spoke to me and inspired me. I may have cheered some parts aloud while driving and I definitely teared up. I'm a huge fan of this book but you need to read it with an open mind and an open heart. If you do that it will take you on quite a wild ride.
