Editorial Reviews

Review

"A testament to the power of vulnerability. Glennon shows us the clearest meaning of 'To thine own self be true.' It's as if she reached into her heart, captured the raw emotions there, and translated them into words that anyone who's ever known pain or shame—in other words, every human on the planet—can relate to. She's bravely put everything on the table for the whole world to see."

―Oprah Winfrey (Oprah's Book Club 2016 selection)

"Love Warrior reaches a depth of truth and power and emotional gravity that is rarely seen in the world, and even more rarely spoken aloud. Glennon's story about the resurrection of her marriage (a tale of a woman daring to come into her body, and a man daring to come into his mind, and the two of them daring—with outrageous courage—to trust each other) is something beyond merely inspirational; it is epic. I think of this book as the vital, long-overdue, much-needed sister memoir to Eat Pray Love. Glennon lifts the roof off her whole house―her whole life―and examines everything, right out in the open. She has, indeed, become a Love Warrior. This book is an act of love and truth and generosity; it will change lives."

―Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Big Magic and Eat Pray Love

"This is a book about what it means to be human—to wrestle with love, hurt, addiction, vulnerability, intimacy, and grace. Love Warrior blew me away. We can all find pieces of our own stories reflected in Glennon's powerful words. We are so lucky to have her courage and wisdom in the world. We need this kind of truth telling if we are ever going to find our way back to each other."
Brené Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Rising Strong and Daring Greatly

"How can I do justice to this book? Moving and brilliant and funny and shocking and heartbreaking and inspiring, Love Warrior raises provocative questions about just what is possible for a person, a marriage, a family, a life. At the heart of this story is the insistence that we don't have to settle—we can explore our shadows, and we're not just going to survive it, but we're going to come out the other side a whole new person with new love, new hope, new strength, and maybe even a new marriage. This is a big, stunning, buoyant, honest, raw glimpse into the life of an astonishing woman, but it is also a punch in the face to anyone anywhere who believes that this is just how it is and it's not going to get any better."

–Rob Bell, New York Times bestselling author of Love Wins

"This elegant, moving memoir is about one woman's marriage but also much more than that. Glennon writes about a hunger for love that all of us feel and the only food that ultimately feeds us. She understands the unique relationship between spiritual and romantic love, and in finding one, she masters the other. Truly a wonderful book."

―Marianne Williamson, New York Times bestselling author of A Return to Love

"When I finished the last page of Love Warrior, I sobbed. I sobbed because I was in awe. Because I didn't want it to end. Because it made me believe more deeply in love, in humanity, in forgiveness, in God, in marriage. Glennon and Craig have invited us so far into the messy, beautiful, difficult insides of their hearts and lives, and what we find there is profoundly inspiring. This is a book that will change lives, change marriages, change the way we think and talk about what love really is."

Shauna Niequist, New York Times bestselling author of Present Over Perfect

"A compelling story about self-discovery. Candid, brave, and generous."

Kirkus Reviews

"Glennon Doyle Melton has mastered sharing her emotional life with the world, which she does nearly daily on momastery.com. Now she lays herself bare once again in Love Warrior, chronicling her struggles and the depths of her resilience in the darkest of times. A heroic achievement."

So--I often love Glennon's writing. Love Momastery. Have contributed to Together Rising. Etc.

Honestly, I'm torn between two and three stars.

I read the book in under 24 hours (including time I really should have been sleeping). It was definitely gripping: raw, real, vulnerable. At times it was reminiscent of Ann Lamott in the best ways . . . though much less sprinkled with humor to lighten things up (not surprisingly, given what she's covering here). I highlighted a variety of passages because they were meaningful to me and well-phrased.

That said, ultimately, I felt like it was uncomfortably voyeuristic, especially about Craig. And I'm assuming (I'm sure hoping) he okayed the book. Even so, it's one thing for an author to share every intimate detail about her own life, but to discuss in such great detail incredible volumes of private information about her spouse . . . for me, it crossed a line where I ultimately felt I had intruded too much into what should have remained private between them.

Then the book ends with it sounding like they've reconciled and forged a strong marriage through their intense efforts. . . . Suddenly, the afterword has, "So I don't know if we'll stay married or not." And then I've read from Glennon's blog that they're actually divorcing now. They'll get no judgment on the divorce from me, but it makes me feel even more awkward having read the book, like this is a chapter in their lives that I should not be privy to in such great detail.

I had been greatly looking forward to reading it. I found it gripping while I read it. I'm not sure I should have read it. I feel weird about having read it.

I tried, I really tried, but at about the midpoint of this book I started skipping so many pages I finally just succumbed to my truth and let it go.

I am well aware that this a good writer, an excellent writer, and I do understand the genre of "survivor memoirs" and their ability to inspire and empower those for whom the narrative resonates. But for whatever reason, the style of the writing, with its almost breezy stripping of the writer's every thought, making each one as important and essential whether talking about yoga or alcoholism, became wearying to me. The sheer minute-by-minute-by-minute-by-minute account of the writer's marriage and the revelations that arose from it (and other revelation-inducing life events) became wearying to me as a reader. I left her sometime during the yoga section and left without knowing whether or not she and her husband ever had sex again or ever decided to give it a real go again -- and I feel sorta bad about that, as, no doubt, much went into this life and this book -- I just found the mountain of details wore me down too much to care.

I'm sorry to leave this review because I applaud anyone who transcends their demons to find a new and more self-preserving life. But maybe I've read too much of this genre at this point. Maybe the revelations and epiphanies that fascinated this writer to the point of microscopic examination have already been covered in other fine books I've read. I dunno. All I know is, she lost me along the way.

I wish her well, however it went, and congratulate her on both the success of her life and, is seems, this book. From what I can see it's having quite an impact and that's a good thing.

I really really tried to like this book and to get something out of it. I have enjoyed occasional reads of Melton's blog and I have friends who absolutely swear by her writing. About a quarter of the way into the book, I wondered if Melton had ever been diagnosed as a narcissist. I felt so sorry for her husband. She never once tried in her marriage; she blamed all the problems on her husband wanting sex and his infidelity. Not that cheating is cool, but I was sort of like "high five" to the husband for finding a way to get some of his own needs met in a marriage that was ALL ABOUT GLENNON. Unless you like reading self-absorbed drivel don't bother with this book.

I don't follow Glennon's blog. Although, I had heard of Momastery but didn't know much about it. So Glennon and her style were new to me before reading Love Warrior. I thought I would give this a try after seeing so much about the book online, but I didn't have high hopes, since fiction is my thing. I am a fiction girl 100%. I read to escape and I read voraciously.

Wow. I finished this in a day. I have never felt so connected to an author while reading a book. It is like Glennon crawled into my head and my heart and took all of the pain, embarrassment and fear I felt and put them into words (the words I've always wanted to say but could't) and into this book for me. I am not alone.

I've been reading the other reviews where people found parts of the book too voyeuristic regarding Craig. I feel as if those reviewers may not have a personal connection to infidelity. Having dealt with it in my marriage I vehemently disagree with those opinions. Something happens to a person after experiencing spousal betrayal in that way. For me, It was like nothing I could have predicted before it happened. Everything I felt, did and said were nothing like I thought I would do when imagining such a situation in my head. It is real. And it's important to talk about it, especially the extremely personal parts. I found all of the "voyeuristic" details a necessary part of the book. Dancing around the subject or glossing over specifics will not do when working through infidelity. Healing a marriage after unfaithfulness is a constantly changing beast that needs incessant observation and remedy. Kudos to the author for telling it like is and for truly describing what she needed in her physical relationship with her husband.

I feel stronger after reading Love Warrior. I am so glad I gave it a chance. I *needed* to read this.
