When 23-year old Lizzie drops everything to work for some remote VIP billionaires, life isn’t quite what she expected. She’s officially fallen down the rabbit hole but will smuggling a million dollars make or break her?
This book was a whirlwind. I think that’s the easiest way to put it. I absolutely loved it, that’s for sure. What I really loved most was the tone of the book. The conversational and easy-going style that it’s written in. It flows well, takes you places and makes you feel like you’re having a coffee with a long lost friend.
For a start, I’m awed by how one woman has done so much in short space of time, but for me, the beginnings of the book hit a strong chord. I grew up in a different country and experienced a similar (although perhaps not so extreme) wild childhood, running amuck and getting into mischief. Travel has always been an intrinsic part of my life, something which is a core theme running throughout this book.
I think what I had to keep reminding myself was that this woman has actually done what I’m reading about. This isn’t a made up story, some extreme adventure. This was very real life for someone and not that long ago either. I admired the guts this writer had, especially when it came to dissecting her own personality.
Moving on from the admiration side of things, I really enjoyed this story and for a long book, it didn’t take me very long to read. In fact I couldn’t put it down on my flight to New York and finished it off in the airport – much to the annoyance of The Lover. Every time I looked up from my electronic pages, I couldn’t believe I was actually in this normal environment – I was being sucked into the world of Xamnesia.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was a great read and unlike anything I think I’ve ever read before. The journey this author goes through to tell you her story is amazing and awe inspiring and I think it also makes you think about yourself too, and makes your grateful for what you have.
Thanks so much for sharing your story Lizzie.
