    PDF/EPUB ws musik.de Ì The Outrun Epub ¶ outrun epub, The Outrun EpubOn a bleak January morning in 2013 my husband decided to surprise me with a trip to Papa Westray We would never set foot on the island but the flight from Westray to Papay is the shortest in the world and we were doing it for the noveltybucket list factor It isn’t very touristy to take this flight in January even the pilot commented so but we’re not tourists and clearly my husband wanted to beat the rush While we waited at Kirkwall airport for our plane I was intrigued by a young woman also waiting for the plane who I now know to be Amy the author of the book Amy is difficult to miss as she is so striking in looks Tall and slim with long blonde hair I remember thinking she looked a little out of place to be travelling one way to Papay and wondered what she might be doing there For some reason I know not why I decided she must be a locum doctor or something I now know how wrong I was

    PDF/EPUB ws musik.de Ì The Outrun Epub ¶ outrun epub, The Outrun EpubIt seems a little churlish not to say dimwitted to read a memoir and then complain that the writer is a bit self obsessed but I did find that by around page 200 I wanted Amy Liptrot to give it a rest and stop bending my ear Please no of the I was born to be an alcoholic but now I’m recovering day by day in the gorgeous yet bleak Orkney islands They’re on the edge of Britain I was born on the edge and I live on the edge all my life geddit? Amy contemplates herself so much that even she complains about it “Endlessly self abs

    PDF/EPUB ws musik.de Ì The Outrun Epub ¶ outrun epub, The Outrun EpubWithin the first few fragile months of her sobriety Amy Liptrot moves from London back to her home in the Orkney Islands off Scotland’s northern coast From here she writes with passion and fearless honesty about everything from her alcoholic lows to her most elevated moments in recovery and the spectacularly uniue setting of the remote island on which she lives Since I’ve had time to think about and absorb what I read in these memoirs I need to make this five instead of four stars This hit home for me bigtimeI’ve been sober for ten years told my story many times in countless AA meetings and every time I tell it I discover something new about myself Amy’s journey in these pages is very much one of her own self discovery Stopping drinking is only the beginning it’s actually

    PDF/EPUB ws musik.de Ì The Outrun Epub ¶ outrun epub, The Outrun EpubTo be completely honest here the sole reason I had for reading this was the setting of the book I have a weird fascination with remote and isolated places the Arctic circle Antarctica the Northwest Territories and in this case the Orkney Islands off Scotland's north coast between the Atlantic and the North Sea My husband's father's family is from the Orkney Islands so when I read a review of this book and saw the setting I was all inThis is a memoir of a young woman Amy Liptrot who can't wait to get off her unexciting family farm in Orkney and head to London When she does she loses all control and becomes a raging alcoholic drinking herself to the point that she cannot hold a job keep relationships going or find a place to live Amy enters a rehab program and manages to be one of the very few who are able to stop drinking She moves back home to the Orkney Islands to recover and find her true self againAmy's narration is interesting but it does get repetitive after a while S

    PDF/EPUB ws musik.de Ì The Outrun Epub ¶ outrun epub, The Outrun EpubThe Outrun is an extraordinary narrative a warts and all cathartic autobiographical account of recovery from alcoholism twinned with the most beautiful writing about Orkney’s natural worldAmy Liptrot’s parents came to Orkney from England than 30 years ago but will always be incomers and Amy although born on Mainland Orkney seems to identify with being English than Orcadian She left for escaped to university in London and that began her downward spiral into addiction mainly to alcohol The Outrun is the story of her recovery which really only began when she returned to Orkney There she found a new addiction to the natural world finding a position as a corncrake counter with the RSPB In her second year of sobriety with the help of a bursary she lived on Papay Westray which has a population of around 90 and her descriptions of the natural world there are uite stunning at times S

    PDF/EPUB ws musik.de Ì The Outrun Epub ¶ outrun epub, The Outrun EpubOK I've had a month to mull this over and have decided to remain with 35 stars Pity I can't score that on the rating so have rounded it downThis is a beautifully written memoir of a recovering alcoholic gone back home to Orkney after the London life proved to be harmful to her health and well beingWhilst I somewhat enjoyed it I found it a bit self absorbed at times yes I know it's a memoir see how hard I had to think about how to write this review? I also found the obsession with describing the Orkney wildlife and scenery a bit too David Attenburgh for me although I think I understand why Amy has done this addiction transference? I did find some of the descriptions uite repetitive but it didn't annoy me so much that I would score it down for that aloneIn all it's not so bad

    PDF/EPUB ws musik.de Ì The Outrun Epub ¶ outrun epub, The Outrun EpubA clear eyed memoir of recovery from alcohol addiction Amy Liptrot's prose skips forward with assurance and clarity The book is relatively short; so are the chapters which makes this is a pretty uick read but there is depth too Reading The Outrun is like drinking cold waterThe story is simple Liptrot who suffered from severe alcohol addiction in her twenties moves back to her home in Orkney after completing a rehab program in London Orkney is a collection of islands to the north of Scotland sparsely inhabited and ancient In the solitude and nature that Orkney affords Liptrot attempts to make sense of her mistakes and move onWhat makes this book so valuable is the way Liptrot maps her recovery onto the natural environment On the windswept islands of Orkney Liptrot a keen observer finds patterns and metaphors that help her think through a difficult time
