My Life as a Doormat
My Life as a Doormat by Rene Gutteridge
Most books I read are pretty predictable. By page 10 you already know basically what the ending is going to bring about. Well, this is one book that isn’t predictable. I had no idea what was going to happen, and I couldn’t have guessed the ending until almost the end. And if a good book is supposed to stir your emotions and make you feel something, then this was a great book. I thought a LOT about this book after I finished it.
The heroine is playwright Leah Townsend. And I absolutely hated her boyfriend. He wasn’t SO bad, but then, he was! And when he signed her up for a conflict management support group, I could understand her humiliation. But he lived to regret it, and she ended up happy that he did.
This is a book that makes you examine your own choices and attitudes, and I like that in a book. I highly recommend it.
