I picked up this book based on the great reviews, and it left me disappointed. I felt that King kept repeating the same lines over and over again. The book never picked up , it seemed to drag. While her experiences may no doubt be memorable, her writing is not. Don't waste your time reading this one.

Not only does this bring to light the gnawing subtleties of addiction, but it's a literary accomplishment. This is a memoir that offers a true portrayal of an alcoholic's life, but there's hope at the other end. Hope comes with a price and that means getting honest with oneself ... which is exactly what this author does!

Most insightful, personally relatable and enjoyable memoir I have read. Right up there with Caroline Knapp' s "Drinking, A Love Story", and for me hit even closer to home. Felt like I was right there in the physically and emotionally painful times, as well as the beautifully described times of feast, camaraderie, and grace.

I don't normally read non fiction but this book was well worth it. The writing style flowed well. The subject matter though serious reflects in a non-preachy way and makes you think about choices you may have made. I will be looking for other titles by this author.

Tough to sympathize with a woman who seemingly wanted for nothing: a nice childhood, intelligence, supportive family, great education, multiple trips abroad (Paris, etc.), right down to her family-financed rehab stint. Better title? "Spoiled: The Tale of An Alcoholic who Drank for No Real Good Reason"
