Guts: The Endless Follies and Tiny Triumphs of a Giant Disaster
Mar 15, 2012
This book was a great reflection of what was quite a pivotal disaster in Kristen Johnston's life. Her writing was enjoyable, so much so that I didn't want to put the book down. If the topic had not been about her personal struggle with addiction and about her everyday life it would be like an entertaining one woman show. The use of capitalization, italics, and parenthesis really helped in adding to the storytelling. She wrote about the situation at hand and inserted her clever commentary that she thought to herself at the time and of course upon reflection. The various tones that she uses I'm sure shine even brighter in the audiobook format (she is the narrator of the audiobook, and even if she wasn't, you clearly get a sense of how inflection should be made). She wrote about a horrid time in her life in a witty and sarcastic form that showed vulnerability and brutal honesty. I look forward to more of Johnston's writing.
