Smashwords book reviews by Shelly Olmstead

  • Reasons for Recovery on May 18, 2011

    This was a very profound story. The only reason I didn't give it a full 5 stars was for the technical problems, such as grammatical and spelling mistakes, because there were a few parts here and there that it was hard for me to understand a sentence because of such things. But as for the story, it had a huge impact on me, being around people with mental illnesses my whole life, from friends to family. I think everyone should read this book to get a better idea of what mental illness and grief and depression are really like and what they can really do to a person. It also teaches that for the most part, your first impression of a person is totally wrong and you shouldn't judge someone, especially if you don't know what their personal history and life is like. (PS: To the writer-I'm offering to edit this book for you for free if you'd like. Just contact me if you're willing to let me help you with that :))
