I really recommend this on audiobook. the oration was a gift. the story was a very valuable perspective for me. beautiful prose. it weaves in and out of her story and poetic visions..I wish the book lasted a little longer and focused more on Joy's later life. I thought her writing on early motherhood and her personal anxiety was beautiful and gripping.

I adored this book. I don't reread books, but I may re-read this.

I think Cheryl's writing is artful and vivid. I really enjoyed her beautiful description of the trail interwoven with reconciling the pain the prompted her to walk. i think the book was overall happier and more uplifting than the movie. Beautiful ending that I was sad I reached. Adored it.

loved it

I think the audio version of this book is the way to go. Amy intonation is really funny, so you don't have to imagine her saying it while reading, you can just hear it. it's light and fun, peppered with thoughtful, kind words underneath that. I have a lot of respect for work ethic, and I laughed out loud throughout. great follow up read to gorgeous but heavy "a thousand splendid Suns" .. ! recommend!

I'm very glad I listened to this. Such an important narrative for me. Relatable but yet so different, such painful experiences but then truly​ triumphant. The end is wonderful and emotionally beautiful.
