I haven't read books in a while, I loved them as a child but as I grew up I stopped. This is essentially the first book that I bought/downloaded. This is coincidentally my first audio book, ever, and it was nothing short of satisfyingly fulfilling. It might seem trivial, a 22 year old writing a memoir, but it's a little more than that. In a wonderful way it offers you new perspectives, it's an opportunity for you to re-evaluate your life, where you are and what you're doing, whether it is what you want your life to be. Amazingly relayed by the author, so you know exactly what tone, emotion and feeling each word, sentence and paragraph should evoke. It's much like a roller coaster, a collection of emotions, happiness, sadness, pity, envy, joy etc in a unique way that makes you want to go out there.
I'd encourage everyone to get a copy, get a copy so that it can offer you the new perspective your life needs, whether you're feeling overwhelmed, that perhaps you can't go on any further doing what you're doing, or whether you need assurance, get a copy, listen/read the book and get the answer you need.
In retrospect, I was sad when it ended, but happy as to what I can take from it (the experience of the book) all.
I'm definitely looking at it all differently.
