INSPIRING. MUST READ.
"I didn't want to put it down. Emily Carpenter took me on a journey through her evolution, resulting in self-reflection. It really is a true tale of adventure. Her courage, honesty, confidence, and humility are inspiring. I love how she projects vivid images with words. My imagination along her journey went wild. I cannot wait for the next project from Emily! Loved it!"
THERE IS NO WARM UP FOR THIS ADVENTURE.
"This is one of those books you want to finish once you start it. I found myself sneaking a few pages in every chance I had. It is juicy in so many aspects - from characters, to Chinese business culture to steamy moments between the sheets. Yet it is written from a wide-eyed but intelligent youthful perspective you don’t normally find in novels. At times I felt genuinely sick for the girl and wished she would just move on from her seemingly avoidable suffering. The book has the ability to feel like you are along on her trip… from page one. There is no warm up for this adventure."
I LOVED THIS BOOK.
"I won this book from Goodreads. My copy is signed and the author also included a handwritten card for me. I loved this book. I feel so inspired by it. I read it in about 5 hours, without stopping. The writing style took a few chapters to get used to, but once I did, I really enjoyed it. The author seems like the kind of woman I want to be friends with. I am happy for her for everything that she has accomplished, including writing this book. Even though I don't know her, reading her story made me feel a connection to her."
"Excellent book, much better than I thought it would be. Very descriptive and captivating writing. Two hilarious incidents involve a scooter and a torture museum, but not at the same time. Well worth the price. P.S. I would have punched out Rune after about a month, maybe sooner."
"The attention to detail and expression are so exciting to read! I absolutely loved it! I felt like I was there."
"Great, quick read!" What an awesome book...such an inspiring story!"
A GREAT READ!
"What a great adventure...and read! I quickly read it cover to cover while filled with anticipation. It was entertaining, yet relatable. I connected with Emily's voice and loved her audacity and introspection until the end."
CAN'T PUT IT DOWN.
"I want to strangle Rune and Tilda! I really do love the work. Can't put it down. I was up until midnight reading and I'm early to bed. Truthfully, you have a gift. A wonderful gift."
HAD ME STAYING UP AT NIGHT TO FINISH.
"Recommended to this book by a friend. I don't usually read books to be honest but this had me staying up at night to finish. Completed the book in a few days stressing me out the entire time with the misadventures and erratic behavior from the people in the book."
"A must read!"
SUPER FUN TO READ.
"It was super fun to read. You kick ass. Read it in one sitting and passed it to my wife."
"Great, quick read!"
