I found this book to be pretty slow the first 2/3. The parts that kept me interested were all the early Seattle and early University of Washington details since I live in Seattle and went to UW. I wonder if you had no connection to either of those th ...more

A really fast read that was an interesting look at watching someone slide into addiction. I found the story interesting, and enjoyed looking at the story of "normal" people who suffer from addiction. Not everyone who is addicted finds themselves home ...more

I would give this 6 stars if I could. Such a fast, captivating, horrifying, moving story. It's the kind of book that pulls you in instantly as it weaves between two different times and you attempt to understand how each story is connected to one anot ...more

Cheryl Strayed
“How fabulous down was for those first minutes! Down, down, down I'd go until down too became impossible and punishing and so relentless that I'd pray for the trail to go back up. Going down, I realized was like taking hold of the loose strand of yarn on a sweater you'd just spent hours knitting and pulling it until the entire sweater unraveled into a pile of string. Hiking the PCT was the maddening effort of knitting that sweater and unraveling it over and over again. As if everything gained was inevitably lost.”
Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

Barbara Kingsolver
“In my own worst seasons I've come back from the colorless world of despair by forcing myself to look hard, for a long time, at a single glorious thing: a flame of red geranium outside my bedroom window. And then another: my daughter in a yellow dress. And another: the perfect outline of a full, dark sphere behind the crescent moon. Until I learned to be in love with my life again. Like a stroke victim retraining new parts of the brain to grasp lost skills, I have taught myself joy, over and over again(15).”
Barbara Kingsolver, High Tide in Tucson

Jonathan Safran Foer
“I kept thinking how they were all names of dead people, and how names are basically the only thing dead people keep.”
Jonathan Safran Foer

J.M. Coetzee
“I'm sorry, my child, I just find it hard to whip up an interest in the subject. It's admirable, what you do, what she does, but to me animal-welfare people are a bit like Christians of a certain kind. Everyone is so cheerful and well-intentioned that after a while you itch to go off and do some raping and pillaging. Or to kick a cat.”
J.M. Coetzee, Disgrace

Elizabeth Gilbert
“I have good idea, for if you meet some person from different religion and he want to make argument about God. My idea is, you listen to everything this man say about God. Never argue about God with him. Best thing to say is, 'I agree with you.' Then you go home, pray what you want. This is my idea for people to have peace about religion.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
