I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Baring your soul... reading from your diary aloud... all your fears, pain, sorrow, anxiety… dealing with death… standing completely naked, bathed in stark light, in front of a judgmental public eye.
The author does this with a natural, stumbling, honest voice. She shares with us more than most are comfortable with ever sharing and does it in a formidable, “in your face”, way.
There isn't an easy way to explain the experience of reading this work. Much of it doesn't read easily. By that I don't mean it is difficult to decipher or understand, but the emotional resonance of the work has a certain 'punch-you-in-the-face' brutal honesty that is rare to find.
As this isn't a work of fiction the depth of the work is far beyond light reading. You have been warned.
It's common for me to say, in reviews that write, that I don't give spoilers... and I won't give spoilers here either. What I will say is that there is raw, honest looks into the human condition, and it can, if you allow it to, affect you on a highly personal level.
I will happily read and recommend this work of truth to any and all who will read it. It is simply amazing.
