I have loved the author’s previous books, so when I heard that this one was coming out, I preordered it IMMEDIATELY. Ms. Lawson writes about human flaws in such a humorous, open way that the reader can’t help but be sucked into the story.
I learn a lot from her books, too. I had no idea that watermelon was a laxative for cats until she described her leopard spotted carpet. I had to look up a cockchafer, also.
I live the chapter on fighting with the insurance company every week. Sometimes, it’s several times a week. I comforted me to know that others have the same fights with the same people, and it’s not just me. Now, if we could all band together and allow doctors to decide what is best for patients, and not allow the insurance companies to dictate treatments, so many more people would be happier and healthier.
I highly recommend this book. I laughed through the majority of it, but she discusses many serious subjects, also.
The above linked article tells about the 11 days that Agatha Christie disappeared without a trace. It is still somewhat of a mystery. No one, including her, knew what happened. The article is really interesting. I wonder what the true story is. The world may never know.
I recently discovered the author of this book by her videos on Facebook. She is funny and I truly enjoy watching her. When I discovered that she’d written a book, I just had to read it!
The book was humorous, but touched on some rather difficult parts in her life. I am very glad that she wrote the book. I know several people who would be helped by hearing her story. It stopped abruptly with the birth of her son. I hope she writes a second book about parenthood. Her videos about it are funny, and I can only imagine that the stuff that comes with raising children would be just as humorous.
The above linked article is basically a quick recap of the book, The Radium Girls. It is very interesting, and is a good article, but is more of a summary. It’s worth reading if you’re not going to read the book.
I had heard a lot about this book from many people. Most were recommending it for bookclub. I was a little confused by the beginning, but once I put that part aside in my mind, I finally got into the book.
The ending left me hanging a bit, but, then again, it was book one in a series. I don’t know if I liked this enough to continue with the series, so I’ll have to think about it until book 2 lands in my lap, somehow.
I loved this book! The author’s journey through a brain tumor diagnosis and treatment is long and hard, but she tells her story with humor and realism. It was a quick read and entertained me the whole time. I would definitely recommend this book.
