A memoir of unblinking honesty and poignant, laugh-out-loud humor, BLACKOUT is the story of a woman stumbling into a new kind of adventure--the sober life she never wanted. Shining a light into her blackouts, she discovers the person she buried, as well as the confidence, intimacy, and creativity she once believed came only from a bottle. Her tale will resonate with anyone who has been forced to reinvent or struggled in the face of necessary change. It's about giving up the thing you cherish most--but getting yourself back in return.… (mere)

The Prelude and Intro were great but then we start the book at her birth basically. Learning so much about her as a child, YA, college student. I was *bored to death*. It wasn't what I picked the book up for. Her childhood scrapbook isn't something I want to read about for chapter after chapter.

I will skip ahead and see if the last half is what I came for.

Actually, I've read some reviews and it ends with a couple chapters on her claiming people need religion and god in their life. Again this is not what I came for. DNF ( )

Sarah Hepola is a very good writer, and Blackout is compelling and definitely held my interest. She divides her tale into two parts, and in the first, she offers some of the best insights into drinking and the phenomenon of blacking out that I've ever read. As she got close to winding up the second part, though, the energy of her narrative fizzled out a bit. Hepola was four years sober when she wrote this, and although every day counts, and is a wonderful thing, that's a pretty short timeframe for self-reflection. The strain of trying to come up with conclusions about living sober shows, and the attempt seems a bit unwise. I like that her dedication is "For Anyone Who Needs It," though, and do think that the book could be a big help and wake-up call to a younger person struggling with the "am I or aren't I?" phase of coming to terms with her alcoholism. That possibility alone makes Blackout worthwhile, but Hepola's writing makes it more than just that. Three and a half stars. ( )

A long overdue memoir about alcoholism and addiction told from a woman's point of view. Funny, punchy, yet terrifyingly real. Enjoyed the hell out of it. ( )

Nothing special as a memoir or AA story, except for a couple of horrific drinking incidences. Just a straight-forward non-anonymous AA talk. Hard to take with the whole celebrity anonymity issue; not a good model. ( )

What a brave fucking person. Love how honest she was about her alcoholism. It's amazing nothing terrible ever happened to her. I also love her writing. ( )
