3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings about Walking on Broken Glass, 9 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Walking on Broken Glass (Kindle Edition)
I began this book with mixed feelings and questioned during the first chapter, if I would continue with it all, but continue I did and was glad of it.

This is the story of Leah, an alcoholic, and although it focused on her struggle against alcoholism I thought the true theme was her journey to self awareness. I found Leah to be captivating as her story progressed and we shared her thoughts. Her husband Carl, although a victim of his own past, was detestable; I felt real anger towards him. These were three dimensional characters and the author is to be commended on the passion embodied in her writing.

I enjoyed this book and will probably read this author again, given the opportunity, but there are a couple of negatives.

The references to God and Christianity were, for my taste, overdone. One of the other reviewers makes the point that AA is not a religious organisation and should not be portrayed as such. I know nothing of AA but the book did give the impression that it was religious. The book implies that immersing oneself in Christianity is the only road to recovery from alcoholism; I suggest there many other equally valid paths to tread.

The book also ended abruptly, almost as though the final chapters had been ripped from my copy.

I got this novel as a free download for Kindle from Amazon.com
