Publisher's Summary

Darcie Wilder's Literally Show Me a Healthy Person is a careful confession soaking in saltwater, a size B control top jet black pantyhose dragged over a skinned knee and slipped into unlaced doc martens. Blurring the lines of the written word, Literally Show Me a Healthy Person is a portrait of a young girl, or woman, or something; grappling with the immediate and seemingly endless urge to document and describe herself and the world around her. Dealing with the aftermath of her mother's death, her father's neglect, and the chaotic unspoken expectations around her, this novel is a beating heart at the intersection of literature, poetry, and the Internet. Darcie Wilder elevates and applies direct pressure, but the wound never stops bleeding.

Darcie Wilder is brilliant!

Would you listen to Literally Show Me a Healthy Person again? Why?

Enjoyed the hell out of this. Listened to this with my friends on a road trip and we were laughing the whole way through. Deadpan comedy at it's finest.

This is like stand up comedy. Also sad as hell. Entertaining all the way through. Very cool stuff.

A Steam of Conscious

This book is so damn good. It's a chaotic stream of consciousness, hammered out on an iPhone and curated into a shameless confessional.

I couldn't finish it

Honestly, I hope this young woman gets the love & help she needs. This just felt like I was reading someone's diary & I just want to refer them to a good therapist or support group.

5 stars for being exactly what it wants to be. Starting over now. But this is fifteen words. Audible.

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.

def not for everyone. kind of like playing that game where you try to stab the spaces between your fingers with a knife. a bunch of tense thuds mixed with some really deep cuts.

I can relate to a lot of this. I have been attacked by a pet prairie dog. one Christmas morning when I was 22, my dad explained how to get cocaine out if the carpet using a vacuum hose with pantyhose on the end.

deadpan delivery. laughed uncomfortably. hurt a little. will listen again.

Makes me feel kind of alive

This audiobook kind of takes me back to a place where I once existed mentally and physically in a way that’s hard to describe so I won’t. And for all the talk about sentimentality being detrimental, I just like it.

somewhere in between not bad and ok

trying not to give details to the book so as not to ruin any part of it.
I found this book to be predictable in a stereotypical millennial way and some interactions described. almost like from a TV drama trying to mimic really hard life in a city.
there are parts that shine light and give insight to the struggle of life and growing up and becoming an adult coming from a cushy and comfortable background.
then there were parts that left me confused as to the reasoning behind executing that action.
I love that this was written, or at least as I heard it, as a stream of consciousness style. the style led to my confusion in some sections. I appreciate the rawness of the thoughts. they are very relatable.

What just happened to me

"Literally" what is this book?! Depressing and jumbled confusion with no particular rhyme or reason. Not for me.

Not for the faint hearted

Strange and honest little number. Far from prudish, closer to explicit. Dark and deep and odd and wonderful.
