    Book » The Outrun È PaperbackDownload ó Amy liptrot The OutrunTo be completely honest here the sole reason I had for reading this was the setting of the book I have a weird fascination with remote and isolated places the Arctic circle Antarctica the Northwest Territories and in this case the Orkney Islands off Scotland's north coast between the Atlantic and the North Sea My husband's father's family is from the Orkney Islands so when I read a review of this book and saw the setting I was all inThis is a memoir of a young woman Amy Liptrot who can't wait to get off her unexciting family farm in Orkney and head to London When she does she loses all control and becomes a raging alcoholic drinking herself to the point that she cannot hold a job keep relationships going or find a place to live Amy enters a rehab program and manages to be one of the very few who are able to stop drinking She moves back home to the Orkney Islands to recover and find her true self againAmy's narration is interesting bu

    Book » The Outrun È PaperbackDownload ó Amy liptrot The OutrunOK I've had a month to mull this over and have decided to remain with 35 stars Pity I can't score that on the rating so have rounded it downThis is a beautifully written memoir of a recovering alcoholic gone back home to Orkney after the London life proved to be harmful to her health and well beingWhilst I somewhat enjoyed it I found it a bit self absorbed at times yes I know it's a memoir see how hard I had to think about how to write this review? I also found the obsession with describing the Orkney wildlife and scenery a bit too David Attenburgh for me although I think I understand why Amy has done this addiction transference? I did
