Wince. Laugh. Cry. Repeat. That was the order of emotions that took place while audiobook reading Lindy West’s Shrill, Notes From a Loud Woman. Her raw experiences told in graphic detail leaves those of us capable of empathy, going for a disheartening yet inspiring walk in her shoes. It’s a life I know nothing about—being a fat girl and feeling shamed for it. But I do know about being a woman in a society where it's still socially acceptable for all types of masochism. Because of her book, I am enlightened and move forward a better and more proactive person. Thank you Lindy West for your story. Thank you Audible.
