I was really excited about reading OBSTACLES BRING’ EM by Maria Federici (DOYLE) the synopsis regarding the authors near death experience caught my attention. As I began reading the 90 page book I noticed the easy to follow pattern of reconstruction not so much as to the authors recovery but her life in general.
It did not take long or me to tire of meeting the author’s family and friends and so by the time we got to her dog I was relieved the book was almost over. Now this does not mean I hated the book it. There are some redeeming qualities.
Within the pages of family recognition and antidotal stories the reader is presented with a glimps of what it means to recover from a traumatic accident. Since the author has no memory of what happened she is dependent on the recollection of others OBSTACLES BRING’EM shares a glimpse into the authors life as she continues to move past an event that caused not only physical but emotional trauma.
Though I recommend reading the book I would suggest obtaining a libray copy.
