I'm reading this for my book club this month. I wasn't too keen on it based on the write up, but I seriously love it. It's been a while since I've liked a book this much. Recommend.

I thought this was going to be about Elin Nordegren.

I'll take a look at the book though! I think maybe it was on either my Mom's or my wife's book club lists?

I feel so cheated by amazon/kindle.


Do library's loan ebooks?

According to my friend who has a Kindle, they do. She goes to Chester Co. Library.

The ones around here do. Keep in mind though, that it's like a physical book to them, in that they can only lend out so many copies at a time. I tried to get this one through the library first but there were 92 people ahead of me, so I just ended up buying it.


Also, don't borrow books from libraries. I've heard stories about several libraries having to fumigate, whatever, for bed bugs b/c books have come back contaminated. Ew.

I'm not taking my recommendation back... but the journey was better than the ending. Somewhat unsatisfying.

So glad I didn't buy it. Who recommends a book they haven't finished?!

Obviously I do. What a silly question.

I still really enjoyed everything up to the last chapter. It just felt like she couldn't tie everything together well. Despite that, it's still going to be a book that stays with me.
