Format: Kindle Edition
I particularly enjoyed the first half of the book. Well written and hilarious in places, with nuggets of wisdom and insight that I could relate to scattered around.

I found the second half, however, not as enjoyable. There are only so many ways you can describe your clutter and your emotional fall-out from it before it becomes tedious. While I found the travel interesting along with her insights into her hoarding as a result of the travel, I felt too much was devoted to that and (in my mind at least) it detracted from the main story.

I would recommend this book though. A very entertaining and pleasant read, and one that has given me insight into my own minor hoarding.

It was an interesting and inspiring book.
Very easy to read. It all seemed too real.
Anyone who is a hoarder will find it enjoyable and helpful to overcome the hoarding habit.

The depth of personal revelation in this made it fascinating. Corinne does a good job of explaining what her feelings and drive was to hoard her stuff. I could definitely recognise some of the feelings in myself. I read it over a weekend, and everytime I did put it down, I found myself drawn back to picking it back up again.

THis was a great book for the clutterholic. It was entertaining and well written. It's time for me to reread it to get the gist of throwing things out again. I did enjoy it very much.
