Twirl Review


Twirl by Patsy Clairmont is basically a collection of thoughts on life from the author, specifically how to keep life meaningful and peaceful amidst the "twirl" of the everyday grind.

To be honest, this book just wasn't my style.  Each chapter is it's own entity, kind of like individual blog posts - which I don't usually mind, but I felt like the subjects weren't really connected to each other at all, which is what confused me.  While I occasionally caught glimpses of the main theme of "twirling" and how that impacts different areas of our lives, I had a hard time picking out a solid point in this book, and even in most of the chapters.  The Type-A side of my personality likes a clear point, which I felt was lacking in this book.  I just need clearer purposes or points in my non-fiction.

However, I will say that I liked the general concept of the book, and I liked that each chapter was short and focused on a narrow theme - those kind of books are perfect for a brief re-focus as you read chapters throughout the day.  I think more poetically-minded, artsy people would probably get more out of this book than I did.

Also, she made a reference to "Christian mystics" which confused me though (she said it like it was a good thing?), so if anyone knows what that is, I'd love it if you'd enlighten me.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend this book, but I'm sure there are some people who would understand/appreciate it more than I did.

Note: I received this book for free from Booklook in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
