Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. It was genuine and has extremely valuable observations. This lady has a true talent for writing. It was riveting and I binge listened to it for 2 days. It got me through a long road trip!
Who was your favorite character and why?
the author herself. She is hilarious in the face of so much pain. I could relate to some of the stories and it made me cry in spots.
Have you listened to any of Dawn Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No. This was my first.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
the part about her son blew me away, and the fact that the system is so broken and she needs and has tried every possible avenue and cannot get the proper help for him made me really feel her desperation. I hope that she gets the help and intervention for her family and for him and for society before it is too late. I honestly do not know what I would do if faced with the problems she is faced with, and she is a strong and amazing person for having such tenacity and not giving up. She is honest and it is a gut wrenching chapter, to say the least. It was a hard and painful read, but hopeful as well. Her vulnerability is extraordinary. She really made me think about what I would do in her shoes, and I wonder if I could handle things with such courage. I hope that she gets help and I hope that this book changes the world for people going through similar hardships. It was that good.
Any additional comments?
I loved everything in the book except for the chapter on who she would sleep with and why. It was funny, but didn't go with the rest of the book to me.
wandering excellent writing. I love her descriptive painting with words but wonder why some chapters are included
