Where does This Is How I Save My Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
One of the very best memoirs (and I am a huge memoir fan) and so grateful Amy read her own book. Her descriptions of her medical ailments are not for the faint of heart yet the core of the story is her courage to make the inner journey of self-responsibility.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Amy! And her favorite character is India. So, both!
Which scene was your favorite?
Hard to pick ... Amy and her patient and loving parents at the Taj Mahal, wherein she surrenders not only to the beauty of this magnificent world wonder (I have been and it assuredly is "vaut le voyage") also to 42 acres of parkland, night sky, the milling and awe-inspired Indian crowds. None of this would have been possible for her to experience if she had failed to follow the many breadcrumbs of serendipity which led her to Delhi in search of a stem cell cure for Lyme disease.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Amy's own particular mantra is "Let go ... let go ... let go".
Any additional comments?
Certainly a must-read for anyone reeling through the grueling and painful experiences of Lyme disease. However, her inner journey of self-discovery mirrors her body's travails. Her acknowledgement include heartfelt thanks to Elisabeth Gilbert and Cheryl Strayed, so if a prospective reader has enjoyed these authors, I would heartily endorse listening to Amy's memoir.

Amy has such a fun and descriptive way of writing that you actually feel like you're there and understand exactly what she means. I feel like I've been on a journey with her through this book and in some ways I'm sad that it's over, but I am thankful for all that she shared and the many lessons that can be learned from her experience. This book would definitely be beneficial for anybody to read, but especially for those who are going through health issues. Such a wonderful read.
