Description

The Newest Oprah Book Club 2016 Selection

The highly anticipated new memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle Melton tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage.

Just when Glennon Doyle Melton was beginning to feel she had it all figured out—three happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller list—her husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed. A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, Glennon found that rock bottom was a familiar place. In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life.

Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on. This astonishing memoir reveals how our ideals of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for a man and a woman to truly know one another - and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything they've been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, commit to living true—true to themselves and to each other.

Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring account of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.

An outstanding take on healing and self discovery

Glennons truth and voice are refreshing and real. I found so much of myself in this story about what it truly means to love, heal, and discover who you truly are. No spoilers here but I truly believe everyone should read this book. Absolutely outstanding. I laughed. I cried. I saw myself.

Humanizing..

Glennon tells a story that makes you feel not alone in a world that is so disconnected. She's raw and real and has shown bravery (and her families and especially husband) to tell her journey to healing her own cultural traumas. I think so many women can identify with her and her message about body connection and wisdom is a needed one. And her messages about compassion and understanding throughout the hardships of marriage are a testament to her good character. 5 stars, loved it, couldn't listen fast enough.

Cover to cover.

I could not put it down. I saw myself, my daughters, my parents, my marriage and the marriage of my daughter inall of this. A touching, honest and painfully true story that is more common than we'd like to think. I enjoyed every minute of it while being tortured by much of it as well. I will make different decisions as a result of reading it. What more could one ask for from a book.

Starts out great but takes a sharp right hand turn

Would you try another book from Glennon Doyle Melton and/or Glennon Doyle Melton?

No, probably not

Would you recommend Love Warrior (Oprah's Book Club: A Memoir) to your friends? Why or why not?

I would not...it starts out great and it is an interesting story and read well but turns into what feels like one long mommy blog entry. When the character starts seeing the therapist is when it lost me...the language, the story seemed contrived and super super religious.

What three words best describe Glennon Doyle Melton’s performance?

theatrical, religious, predictable

Did Love Warrior (Oprah's Book Club: A Memoir) inspire you to do anything?

It inspired me to look more into an author when i am reading a memoir

Any additional comments?

I was not familiar with Melton's blog or background...if i knew that religion of the traditional sort was so prevelant in her writing, i wouldnt have listened. I get it...you love god. Some of the story was completey unbelievable, i.e. the long rant on explaining "sexy" to her small children.....there is no way to small girls sat and listened to a long explanation of what sexy meant. Unrealistic and the phrase " on the bathroom floor" was way overused. I bought this book because Elizabeth Gilbert endorsed it.....Melton has definately read Eat Pray Love....way to much of the same verbage.

A good examination of Pain, Hope and Love.

I have never heard of Ms Melton before reading this book, and that may explain much about my review. Perhaps if I had read her previously I would give this one more than 3 stars ... or would have skipped reading it.

I really liked the first half of the book. Her insight into love, loss, hope, pain and self is something that spoke to me. I saw my marriage in this book. I saw my hopes in it too. I was impressed by her ability to take the lovely and loveless moments of life and put them into words which were so raw and real. But then the book became more of a lecture or a sermon and it lost me. I understand that she is a believer and that she attributes the repair of her marriage to God working through her husband and herself. But it seemed too simplistic. I would have liked the book so much better if she more fully examined the hardness of the pain, the grief, the difficulty of accepting the changes and finally the growth of the love and forgiveness. I wish there had been more depth to the exploration of the pain.

We are all spoiled....

First, I will say I like Glennon's style of writing and can respect her ability to share so much of her journey with readers. I guess what stands out to me is how spoiled so many of us are today. I kept thinking that she was lucky to be able to attend a college (even if she took advantage of it) or what a luxury for her to be able to stay at home full time with her young children. And who was paying her rent and bills when her world was falling apart around her? It all just seems so whiny of us to constantly complain and seek fillers. So many people in the world are hungry or abused or living in war-torn towns and villages. The last thing they have to focus on is themselves. We could all benefit from focusing on others--- instead of self. I did enjoy the book and took away several good ideas and reflections. It's worth a read or listen. Maybe just check it out at the library though. Just being honest.

I listened every spare minute I had until I finished it.

Glennon's story is so truthful and open. She doesn't gloss over the ugly and painful parts, and she talks about the others in her story with grace and respect. This book helped me find true things about my self and my story. She showed me God as love, not fear. Thank you, Glennon. You ministered God to me.

Disappointing

I have to break away from the crowd and join DownSouthDiva and Reademandweep in their negative reviews of this book. Glennon Doyle Melton's self-portrayal is disturbingly narcissistic, and hers is not a voice I will ever want to listen to again (although, perhaps, it was perfect for this whiny memoir). I was hesitant to buy the book, since I have been disappointed more than once by Oprah's picks, but after seeing Ms. Melton on the CBS Morning News, I thought there might actually be some thought-provoking stuff in this book. I will admit that I found a bit of such stuff in the first half, but the story became so tedious and repetitive as it progressed that I began to lose heart. Then came God (after drugs, alcohol, sex, and bulimia didn't do the trick), at which point I definitely lamented my "against my better judgment" decision. It is clear to me that Glennon Doyle Melton jumps from "cure" to "cure" (e.g., therapy, yoga, meditative breathing) for her self-indulgent angst. She's only 40 years old; I fully expect a sequel to Love Warrior in which we find that her happy ending was just one more temporary fix.

Not what I expected

I bought this Audiobook because I read on various sites that I frequent that it is amazing. I have to admit, that it was nothing I expected. When the author described her worst years, I had a hard time continuing because it made my heart ache so badly. But just as she wisely daid, I sat through it and it was worth every minute. If you ever need a terribly real but also wonderfully inspiring book, then this is it. You will not regret it. Thank you Mrs. Doyle Melton for your openness and honesty!

Positive Botschaft für ein authentisches Leben

Schonungslos ehrlich schildert die Authorin ihren Weg von der Essstörung bis zum Hinauswerfen ihres Mannes und kommt doch gestärkt und warm daraus hervor. Die Stimme der Autorin ist mir persönlich zu piepsig, aber Autoren, die bereits berühmt sind, glauben ja leider immer alles zu können und übergeben ihre Bücher nur selten professionellen Sprechern. Auch hatte ich mir etwas mehr Weisheit erhofft, da die Autorin mittlerweile in einem Atemzug mit Brené Brown erwähnt wird, aber diesbezüglich fällt der Stoff eher dünn aus. Trotzdem ein unterhaltsames Gesamtwerk, das ich innerhalb von einer Woche durchgehört habe.
