Book Review: I am Her...

Title I am Her...

Author Sarah Ann Walker

Release Date October 1, 2012

A sometimes funny, tragically graphic, compelling tale of a woman suffering...

***WARNING- GRAPHIC CONTENT and THEMES ***

She has no name of her own. She is every name everyone has ever called her. She is nameless. She has a good job, a beautiful home and a wonderful husband. She is everything she was supposed to be. She has structure and stability, but she is lost.

She is trying. Her whole life is spent trying; yet her whole life has been nothing but an apology. She is so tired of trying and failing.

In just one week, she learns her entire life is a series of brutalities. She learns intense, consuming passion for the first time with a beautiful stranger. She learns love within this passion, and she learns heartbreak while without.

Slowly her breakdown overcomes her. She tries to rise above her circumstances, but when she has nothing left to fight with; she tries to ease the pain forever.

Desperately, she fights her way through the agony of life, and she returns with a gentle hope. She wants to live, and she wants to love, for the first time in her life. Now, she has a name. Now, she can be 'her'... Any HER that she wants to be.

Review

What in the hell did I just read? Honestly, I have no idea.

So, I was somewhat iffy whenever I decided to read this. The blurb seems interesting, but eh... who knows? I decided to take a chance on it, though, because of the good reviews I've read. However, I'm not sure I read the same book as everyone else. I just can't possibly understand the good reviews. I tried. I tried really hard! I just don't get it. That being said, I don't particularly enjoy writing negative reviews. I understand how much time and effort went into writing a book and I never want to try and discredit an author's hard work. Still, though, sometimes a negative review just cannot be avoided. This is certainly one of those times.

I spent the majority of this book in absolute confusion. No, not the majority. That's a lie. I spent the *entire* book in absolute confusion. NOTHING made sense to me. At the end of it all, I just didn't care enough to try and figure it all out. I mean, I understand the events that happened, but I just don't get it. Oh, and of course the book ends on a cliffhanger and there's a sequel. I don't care, though. I don't think anything in this world could convince me to read the second book.

Do yourself a favor and skip this book. It's not worth the time or the money.

While it's something I very rarely do, I took little notes while reading this book. If you'd like to see them, check out the spoilers below.
