I read this book because I had read and loved another book by this author; I’d Rather Starve Than Cook. I really enjoyed that book and frankly it hit close to home for me as cooking is not my favorite activity. However, this book is very different. This is a memoir.
There were chapters I liked, chapters I didn’t like, ones that made me laugh and ones that touched my heart – so how do you rate a book like that? And what can a reviewer say with this much variety in the story? But then I thought, this is life – some days are good, some days are not. And that is exactly what Lisa Orban is saying – this is her life.
The author puts herself out there by exposing her personal life as a child, teen and into her twenties. The constant is the strong will of this woman in her quest to survive. Unfortunately it takes almost dying until she realizes she has a strong survival instinct. So if you would like to travel along on a life’s journey, give this book a try.
