#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine Book Pick In her most revealing and powerful memoir yet, the activist, speaker, bestselling author, and "patron saint of female empowerment" (People) explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet others' expectations and start trusting the voice deep within us. "Untamed will liberate women--emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal."--Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray Love This is how you find yourself. There is a voice of longing inside each woman. We strive so mightily to be good: good partners, daughters, mothers, employees, and friends. We hope all this striving will make us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us feeling weary, stuck, overwhelmed, and underwhelmed. We look at our lives and wonder: Wasn't it all supposed to be more beautiful than this? We quickly silence that question, telling ourselves to be grateful, hiding our discontent--even from ourselves. For many years, Glennon Doyle denied her own discontent. Then, while speaking at a conference, she looked at a woman across the room and fell instantly in love. Three words flooded her mind: There She Is. At first, Glennon assumed these words came to her from on high. But she soon realized they had come to her from within. This was her own voice--the one she had buried beneath decades of numbing addictions, cultural conditioning, and institutional allegiances. This was the voice of the girl she had been before the world told her who to be. Glennon decided to quit abandoning herself and to instead abandon the world's expectations of her. She quit being good so she could be free. She quit pleasing and started living. Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family, and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each member's ability to bring her full self to the table. And it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts so that we become women who can finally look at ourselves and say: There She Is. Untamed shows us how to be brave. As Glennon insists: The braver we are, the luckier we get.… (més)

There were parts of this book I really enjoyed and that resonated with me, and other parts not so much. The commentary in some areas was so short that I wanted more - she 'touched' on topics that I found very interesting but then that topic ended and it was on to the next topic. Though many of the topics were thought provoking, I felt that some of the topics didn't go into the 'depth' that I hoped for.

However, overall very good and timely topics in the book, including what's going on globally with the BLM movement, LGBT, even COVID19 and mindfulness. The book was insightful, inspirational, and thought provoking. ( )

I didn't mind the repetition that other reviewers complain about. I found some nuggets of truth in each of Doyle's chapters, which read more like short stories than a coherent novel-like arc. Doyle gives up drugs and alcohol when she becomes pregnant. Several years later, as a successful writer, wife and mother of three, she falls in love with Abby, a woman. She decides that the conformity that our society demands of women has never lead her to happiness, so she divorces her husband and marries Abby and for the first time finds true happiness. ( )

I came into this book knowing nothing about it or about it's author, based on a recommendation from a friend. This is definitely not the book for me. It's incredibly repetitive, and very much steeped in self-help terminology. I was hoping for something more like a memoir when I picked it up, but the memoir like passages are all bracketed by so many explanations of how to know yourself that I got frustrated. One of my memoir pet peeves is presenting long quotes that can't possibly be actual quotes - no one remembers their own speech that clearly. It doesn't help that all of her quotes present her as a calm and all knowing guru to the people in her life. No one is that wise all the time. The little glimpses of her blended family life are interesting, and might have made a more interesting book if fleshed out. As it is, I think this could have been summarized as a blog post and it would have been about the right length. ( )

Genuinely how am I supposed to take a memoir where the auther describes how she has to explain to her (old enough to shower alone) daughter what "thinking" is.

I'm not joking. Everyone read this and be grateful I typed it out for you, because I had to listen to the audiobook passage three times to make sure I had it right and I felt my IQ dropping every time.

"
'Or it could be the shower's the only place you're not plugged in, so you can hear your own thoughts in there.'
She looked at me and said 'hu?'
'That thing that happens to you in the shower babe. It's called 'thinking' it's something folks did before google. Thinking is like, it's like googling your own brain.'
'Oh' She said, 'Cool'
"

I'm sorry but this is the single dumbest thing I've read in almost a year. IIs this woman serious? This whole book is just one big post on facebook where someone brags about conversations they never had in order to make themselves look smart. ( )

Good message, sure, I liked it at first, but then it got real old..I'm all for being positive and sharing your story, but this book felt more like a pat on the back "good, you did amazing, you do good, no go and show them" it's like this book is there to prove others wrong? I really like the message behind it, which is why I give it two stars, but yeah, no. That'll be it for me. It got so long that every time I would start to read it, I would doze off! She seems to be a kind woman, though. ( )
