Review

"I have long admired the work of Glennon Doyle Melton both her writing and her mission but with LOVE WARRIOR, she has outdone herself. She has reached a depth of truth and power and emotional gravity that is rarely seen in the world, and even more rarely spoken aloud. Her story about the resurrection of her marriage (a tale of a woman daring to come into her body, and a man daring to come into his mind, and the two of them daring with outrageous courage to trust each other) is something beyond merely inspirational; it is epic. Melton has, indeed, become a love warrior. This book will change lives, and I am incredibly grateful that it exists." Elizabeth Gilbert, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "Big Magic""

"Love Warrior" reaches a depth of truth and power and emotional gravity that is rarely seen in the world, and even more rarely spoken aloud. Glennon s story about the resurrection of her marriage (a tale of a woman daring to come into her body, and a man daring to come into his mind, and the two of them daring?with outrageous courage?to trust each other) is something beyond merely inspirational; it is epic. I think of this book as the vital, long-overdue, much-needed sister memoir to "Eat Pray Love." Glennon lifts the roof off her whole house her whole life and examines everything, right out in the open. She has, indeed, become a Love Warrior. This book is an act of love and truth and generosity; it will change lives.
Elizabeth Gilbert, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Big Magic" and "Eat Pray Love"

This is a book about what it means to be human?to wrestle with love, hurt, addiction, vulnerability, intimacy, and grace. "Love Warrior" blew me away. We can all find pieces of our own stories reflected in Glennon s powerful words. We are so lucky to have her courage and wisdom in the world. We need this kind of truth telling if we are ever going to find our way back to each other.
Brene Brown, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Rising Strong" and "Daring Greatly"

How can I do justice to this book? Moving and brilliant and funny and shocking and heartbreaking and inspiring, "Love Warrior "raises provocative questions about just what is possible for a person, a marriage, a family, a life. At the heart of this story is the insistence that we don t have to settle?we can explore our shadows, and we re not just going to survive it, but we re going to come out the other side a whole new person with new love, new hope, new strength, and maybe even a new marriage. This is a big, stunning, buoyant, honest, raw glimpse into the life of an astonishing woman, but it is also a punch in the face to anyone anywhere who believes that" this is just how it is and it's not going to get any better."
Rob Bell, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Love Wins"

This elegant, moving memoir is about one woman s marriage but also much more than that. Glennon writes about a hunger for love that all of us feel and the only food that ultimately feeds us. She understands the unique relationship between spiritual and romantic love, and in finding one, she masters the other. Truly a wonderful book.
Marianne Williamson, "New York Times" bestselling author of "A Return to Love"

"A compelling story about self-discovery. Candid, brave, and generous."
"Kirkus Reviews""

I loved this book because of its brutal and yet hugely sensitive honesty.
All of us send out the representative of our real selves. To be confronted by that and to know almost everyone out there is doing it was so comforting.

2.0 out of 5 stars I tried, but about midpoint of this book I started skipping so many pages I finally succumbed & let it go 14 September 2016
By Lorraine Devon Wilke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I tried, I really tried, but at about the midpoint of this book I started skipping so many pages I finally just succumbed to my truth and let it go.

I am well aware that this a good writer, an excellent writer, and I do understand the genre of "survivor memoirs" and their ability to inspire and empower those for whom the narrative resonates. But for whatever reason, the style of the writing, with its almost breezy stripping of the writer's every thought, making each one as important and essential whether talking about yoga or alcoholism, became wearying to me. The sheer minute-by-minute-by-minute-by-minute account of the writer's marriage and the revelations that arose from it (and other revelation-inducing life events) became wearying to me as a reader. I left her sometime during the yoga section and left without knowing whether or not she and her husband ever had sex again or ever decided to give it a real go again -- and I feel sorta bad about that, as, no doubt, much went into this life and this book -- I just found the mountain of details wore me down too much to care.

I'm sorry to leave this review because I applaud anyone who transcends their demons to find a new and more self-preserving life. But maybe I've read too much of this genre at this point. Maybe the revelations and epiphanies that fascinated this writer to the point of microscopic examination have already been covered in other fine books I've read. I dunno. All I know is, she lost me along the way.

I wish her well, however it went, and congratulate her on both the success of her life and, is seems, this book. From what I can see it's having quite an impact and that's a good thing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Intensely voyeuristic 8 September 2016
By Sally J. Parrott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
So--I often love Glennon's writing. Love Momastery. Have contributed to Together Rising. Etc.

Honestly, I'm torn between two and three stars.

I read the book in under 24 hours (including time I really should have been sleeping). It was definitely gripping: raw, real, vulnerable. At times it was reminiscent of Ann Lamott in the best ways . . . though much less sprinkled with humor to lighten things up (not surprisingly, given what she's covering here). I highlighted a variety of passages because they were meaningful to me and well-phrased.

That said, ultimately, I felt like it was uncomfortably voyeuristic, especially about Craig. And I'm assuming (I'm sure hoping) he okayed the book. Even so, it's one thing for an author to share every intimate detail about her own life, but to discuss in such great detail incredible volumes of private information about her spouse . . . for me, it crossed a line where I ultimately felt I had intruded too much into what should have remained private between them.

Then the book ends with it sounding like they've reconciled and forged a strong marriage through their intense efforts. . . . Suddenly, the afterword has, "So I don't know if we'll stay married or not." And then I've read from Glennon's blog that they're actually divorcing now. They'll get no judgment on the divorce from me, but it makes me feel even more awkward having read the book, like this is a chapter in their lives that I should not be privy to in such great detail.

I had been greatly looking forward to reading it. I found it gripping while I read it. I'm not sure I should have read it. I feel weird about having read it.

2.0 out of 5 stars With jacket testimonials like Elizabeth Gilbert 3 March 2017
By Linda Ruocco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
With jacket testimonials like Elizabeth Gilbert, Brene Brown, Rob Bell, and Marianne Williamson -- some of my all time favorite "guides" in life, I was totally prepared to LOVE this book. Well, it was not to be. I didn't think the writing was WRITING;, more like a long running description. There were a few sections -- and I mean paragraphs -- that I loved -- but all in all, I couldn't finish it, it was so boring. Lord, am I really saying this? Sorry, Glennon, this was not your best work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Whiny 4 October 2016
By Sheila Gallagher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this memoir whiny and indulgent. The author expected too much from her husband and punished him mercilessly for sticking with her through all of her insecurities.
