Jo | 9 comments Easy read. I was done in a week (I only read at night before sleep too).
I found it light reading, nothing too dramatic. It helped cermet that I have made the right decision giving up the booze!

I agree with your last paragraph fully.
It wasn't a bad book but I wouldn't recommend it to friends in a hurry

Sarah D | 6 comments Definitely agree! Some things really got to me (I had an experience like hers in a hotel in Paris... the similarities were spooky), but I did find it a little choppy. Especially at the end. I felt like the drinking piece of her and the sober piece of her were disconnected, nothing really tying them together. Maybe written too early in sobriety for that to come out? Not sure.

I listened to episode 21 of HOME podcast where Laura and Holly interviewed Sarah Hepola. I enjoyed it more than the book and would recommend it, if you haven't heard it already.
