This book was recommended to me by a friend, that it would speak to me where I am in my life. She was both wrong and right. I could see that Glennon was going through a personal crisis and facing a divorce. However I couldn't relate to her indecision and inability to see herself. When I left my ex-husband things made sense again, there was no indecision or doubt. I could relate to her sense of loss, and once she found her inner warrior that made sense, but the difference is my warrior appeared the night I left and I walk the path to this day. I knew from the start the healing had to start with me, for my children. I can relate to her feeling of not belonging and inadequacy, I have my own self esteem issues, not going to try and cover that up. But it seemed like she had a much further journey than I did, where she ended is where I started at. It felt like she was confirming things I already knew, not opening my eyes to a new view. And maybe that was my mistake, my friend made it seem like there was great insight in this book, which there is, but it is insights I discovered over a year ago and it didn't speak to me as much as I thought it would.
This is from my March book club book, and recommended by another member. This was a super fun book, and I can't wait to read the whole series. One of my other book club members said it was like X-Files, Men in Black and Buffy all rolled into one, and she is right! There is a fun an quirky sci-fi element that doesn't take itself or the storyline too seriously along with a kick ass protagonist with witty repartee to give Joss a run for his money. There were times where the cheese factor was a 10, but your so busy laughing that you don't care. You are thrown into the action from the very first page and it doesn't slow down.
