This book was very interesting and a little mind blowing. Quite honestly, after reading the book I was telling my friends at Book Club that I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near this woman and what I would call ‘bad luck’!
This is Maggie O’Farrell’s memoir of exactly as it states….her SEVENTEEN brushes with death! You read that right…SEVENTEEN and some are just plain eerie! Despite her misfortunes, this is actually a story of being fortunate and alive to tell us her tale of these strange events that have occurred!
Part of me was wondering……is she that naive for these things to happen to her or is she just really that unlucky? Either way, this book is a must read. Seventeen discrete encounters with Maggie at different ages, in different locations, reveal a whole life in a series of tense, visceral snapshots. It really reveals how life can be so dark and precious at the same time.
If you have already read this book, I want to know your thoughts! Happy cringing while reading folks!
