5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book. 19 mars 2014
Par J&B Reviews - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
When I first began this book I found it very hard to read. I'm a breast cancer survivor myself and although it's been a little over twenty years it still hit very close to home. In fact I had to remind myself that it wasn't happening to me all over again, it was happening to Natalie.

I also didn't really like Natalie all that much in the beginning but I suspect I wasn't supposed to. Cancer is a life changing journey and I found Natalie's evolution to be realistic. It wasn't long before I was routing for her and by the end of the book I had become genuinely fond of who she had become.

I highly recommend this book. In spite of the subject matter it is in no way a depressing read. Rather it is the funny, thoughtful and somewhat philosophical story of a cancer patient who realizes that she alone is responsible for making her own good fortune. That's uplifting, not depressing.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Obvious in all the wrong ways. 24 mai 2011
Par NMCK - Publié sur

The premise for this book had me quite interested; a young, successful career woman struck with breast cancer that causes her to contemplate the choices she has made and the priorities she has set. However, I found her interactions with ex-boyfriends lacking rather than revealing. I don't think there was anything in the exchanges with former boyfriends that was not really surface level or otherwise obvious. I also found it obvious that she was going to be changing from a workaholic through the cancer process.

What I did not like was the political strategy that was referred to but not exactly explained throughout the book. It was rather annoying that some things were apparently very important to understanding the plot, such as her tug-of-war with her best friend regarding an article that would eventually be published, were left to inference with very little explanation.

I chose this book because I really enjoyed the last book I read by this author and would still be willing to try other books of hers. But this was a disappointment.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 WHAT YOU FIND AFTER YOUR WORLD FALLS APART... 19 avril 2010
Par Laurel-Rain Snow - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
When your whole world turns upside down with three little words, you'd think that nothing else can affect you so deeply. But after her cancer diagnosis, Natalie Miller's boyfriend Ned is out the door so quickly, it's almost as if he wasn't ever there. Plus, her high-powered job with a senator is "on hold" while she recovers, and then over the months that follow, with the ravages of chemotherapy and all the accompanying side effects to being ill, Natalie begins to look at everything in her life with new eyes.

Writing in a diary, something suggested by her therapist, she begins to look below the surface and reexamine all of her relationships, as well as many of the choices she's made.

Rediscovering what remains after--it's all kind of like going to a Lost and Found Department to scrounge through the assorted items and picking out long-forgotten treasures and tossing aside things that weren't really important after all.

What I loved most about The Department of Lost & Found was the first-person voice of Natalie, who is brave, funny, persistent, and willing to really look at herself. Finding herself after cancer is a journey that offers unexpected rewards along the way.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A great read 28 mars 2014
Par Nmcnally - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I can understand why another reviewer would maybe not like the main character. She is flawed, but isn't that what you want in your realistic heroine? To watch her change physically and emotionally was worth the frustrating moments of watching her make the same mistakes again. I find myself groaning when she makes the wrong moves and then laugh because it's probably the move most of us would make when we are actually living in it. This book was worth the time and cost.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Definitely a recommendation 10 août 2011

This book was a great find...I've read another book by Allison so when I saw this I knew I had to read it. I was not disappointed. The story is well written and the characters have depth. There is a reality that most of us have read about chemo from an objective point of view but this one is from the woman's perspective and she does a great job with it. There are excerpts from the woman's diary. As a nurse, I have to say that I usually am critical about the medical details. Not an issue here. There's not a lot of complex terminology but everything is explained clearly.
I have to find more books by Allison Winn Scotch!
