REVIEW for Consent


Thank you to the wonderful people at Simon & Schuster for releasing the Kindle book to me, via Edelweiss.

TITLE:            Consent

AUTHOR:       Nancy Ohlin

GENRE:           YA

RATING:         


I am a huge fan of memoirs and specifically, memoirs on addiction. I was thrilled when I discovered this book, purely by accident.

Author Hauer tackles a tough subject - one which many people will argue does not really exist. But I disagree with that - love addiction is real and my feeling is that everyone suffers from it (various degrees) at one point or another in our lives.

The author details her life - pretty much in and out of relationships that were, for some reason or other, not feeding her soul. It makes for captivating reading, almost like you are looking at her deepest secrets, while she struggles through them and there isn`t anything we can do to help her.

Hauer is very honest about her `shortcomings`in these relationships and its fascinating to see her slowly come to understand her patterns and her behaviours. 

This book was a bit short for me, but it does give a jolt.

Excellent read.
