An Ambiguous Grief by Dominique Hunter (Book Review #827)

Advertisements

An Ambiguous Greif is a beautiful memoir written about the loss of a Mother, her grief over her son Dylan’s death, and the story behind why it came to be this way. 

The focus is on Dylan, but the narrative and the story emphasize a mother’s triumph and desperation to save the only love she has. It is sad. It is educational, and it is hopeful, all at the same time.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The literature is written bravely. It is easy to follow, and from the start, it grabs your attention and touches your heart. I particularly enjoyed reading how truthful the author was about mental illness. The content is as straightforward as it can get, and the experience is raw. You can easily connect with the feelings and the situation.

You are guaranteed to know more about ADHD, OCD, and how important it is to take it seriously. The subject matter is complicated, and you can see the frustration, pain, and complexity of the notion at hand.

The conversations between Dominique and her son were so sweet. The love and understanding were there, but at the same time, you could easily see the strain it was putting on the relationship.

I recommend this memoir to people who want to know more about mental illness and can endure reading about Dominique’s hardship.

Writing a novel was never on my bucket list. In fact, it was something I didn’t want to consider. There were too many talented authors, too many wonderful stories, too much competition in the book universe– why bother?
