    2. I am pleased that I was given the chance to read this book but I was left with confusion on what exactly I read I felt that the message and title of the book was very misleading I thought it was going to be about people that are alone and how to overcome the challenges that are associated with being alone But, the story was focused primarily about Lane Moore s life and not being alone I think that being alone can mean different things to different people and clearly I feel that the messag I am p [...]


    3. This review originally appeared in Bitch Magazine Dear Lane,Initially, I was skeptical about reading your memoir How to Be Alone If You Want To, and Even If You Don t How to be alone my lady brain snarked How to be in a relationship that lasts longer than six months is what I need I ve been single for most of my adult life, and I ve attended a lot of therapy about it Despite the fact that there were 110 million unmarried people in the United States in 2016, it s still hard to be a sin This revie [...]


    4. A very misleading title premise for this book It has nothing to do with loneliness or solitary person, it s like a biography, very personal, about the author and her own experience with solitude and not Closer to a biography, no reflexion or explanation here If you love this author person you may enjoy it, but if you are looking for something to help yourself, this isn t the right book


    5.

    7. This book has 15 chapters I only enjoyed two.A couple of my issues with this book 1 It feels like this author is whining for 80% of the book.2.It is hard for me to understand why she stays in relationships that are clearly causing her.I did thoroughly enjoy the chapter on Jim Harper.
