Oblivion and Back and a better Oblivion
Her words captured me. Plain and simple. I'm not stating her words are plain and simple, quite contrary Sarah's words are luxurious, raw, rude, and comforting. They are truth, her truth.
I gobbled up this book so quickly, I made myself read it again right after at a purposely slower pace so I could truly consume each part. She made it so easy to relate to herself and to every character. Even the jerks.
How did this even get published?
I haven't fallen victim to this kind of hype since Prozac Nation (which I tossed in the airport trash can). Maybe I have a low tolerance for white girls whining.
Yes, I know both alcoholism and suicide are serious, important subjects. I just found it hard to sympathize with this author. I mean the worst thing that happens to her is she wakes up banging some guy in a hotel room. Sorry, chick, ever heard of freshman year? Also the references to Bobby Flay only reinforced my suspicions on this one: it's who you know.
Skip this one.
Thank you so much for sharing Sarah. I love your story and can relate on so many levels. Thank you for helping me!
Love this book!
This book is very well written and so brutally honest. A must read for blackout drinkers. I will be referring back to it for the rest of my life! Been sober for five years with AA and this is the best book I have read so far on the journey of progressive alcoholism. Very helpful and encouraging. I am buying the hard cover version for my forever library. A book I will pass onto my kids, one of whom is still suffering out there in the sad word of addiction. Thank you Sarah for your words from the heart ❤️
Not bad...not great. Look for it at the library.
I think this book is a brave look into one alcoholic's experience. It's not for everyone, but because so many of us know an alcoholic, or have heard a friend's story about an alcoholic in their life, it offers a glimpse of the struggle to face life without the buffer alcohol provides. It is a "walk a mile in an alcoholic's shoes" story. A well written story.
Blackout is on par 👌🏻
This is such a great memoir about finding oneself, grasping the present moment, taking responsibility, evaluating friendships and more. There were so many parts in this book that I personally identified with and Hepola's wittiness makes this an enjoyable read.
An excellent and deeply personal read. Biting humor and self aware without getting self indulgent. Wholly recommend.
Couldn't put down
I've never written a review before but felt compelled to say a few words here. If you've ever suffered from blackouts been binge drinking this is a must read. It is hysterically written yet insightful and reflective all at the same. I feel that I could have written this book myself. I Bill myself laughing out loud one moment, crying the next, and then going back and underlining passages after having an ha ha moment. This book is already had such an impact on me and I am rereading it as I write this. Thank you for sharing your story Sarah. I too hope that I soon find freedom and sobriety. PS Jade is the nickname my friends gave my drunk alter ego in my early 20s… And still refer to her as such
Thank you for sharing your story. Well written.
