Book Review | Green
Author: D Malone
I was interested in readingGreen: Surviving the Murder of Self by D. Malone because Malone’s life sounded interested and I wanted to hear the message she was sending through her book.
In her book, Malone talks about the events of her life and how they have shaped the person she has become. From a sexual assault that occurred in her teenage years to an emotionally abusive marriage and a number of personal tragedies, Malone provides an honest and candid reflection of her actions, both good and bad. She is very open about her drug addiction, her love for a man that she knew had multiple partners, difficulties with the law and her financial problems.
I really enjoyed this book. I wasn’t sure, when I began, if it was going to be melodramatic or self-pitying in nature, but that was not the case at all. Malone is very upfront about the problems she experiences, the problems she created and the things that she did to rectify her life. I also enjoyed the conversational tone of the book – I felt like I was listening to a friend telling me a story. I think Malone has a natural gift as a storyteller and I would highly recommend her book to anyone interested in reading about someone who overcame adversity in her life and can help others to learn from it.
