All Fall Down
All Fall Down: A Novel | Jennifer Weiner
"Allison Weiss has a great job...a handsome husband...an adorable daughter...and a secret. Allison Weiss is a typical working mother, trying to balance a business, aging parents, a demanding daughter, and a marriage. But when the website she develops takes off, she finds herself challenged to the point of being completely overwhelmed. Her husband's becoming distant, her daughter's acting spoiled, her father is dealing with early Alzheimer's, and her mother's barely dealing at all. As she struggles to hold her home and work life together, and meet all of the needs of the people around her, Allison finds that the painkillers she was prescribed for a back injury help her deal with more than just physical discomfort--they help her feel calm and get her through her increasingly hectic days. Sure, she worries a bit that the bottles seem to empty a bit faster each week, but it's not like she's some Hollywood starlet partying all night, or a homeless person who's lost everything. It's not as if she has an actual problem. However, when Allison's use gets to the point that she can no longer control--or hide--it, she ends up in a world she never thought she'd experience outside of a movie theater: rehab. Amid the teenage heroin addicts, the alcoholic grandmothers, the barely-trained "recovery coaches," and the counselors who seem to believe that one mode of recovery fits all, Allison struggles to get her life back on track, even as she's convincing herself that she's not as bad off as the women around her. With a sparkling comedic touch and tender, true-to-life characterizations, All Fall Down is a tale of empowerment and redemption and Jennifer Weiner's richest, most absorbing and timely story yet"--

I‘m not sure what to say ... I‘m glad I can say I‘ve read one of Weiner‘s books 📚 and I found the subject matter interesting enough but I found the characters single-dimensional and often annoying. But I really enjoyed the #LMPBC and #GroupK experience a lot - it‘s a blast! @BurghBookAddict

Burghbookaddict Most of the characters annoyed the crap out of me too! 2y

This arrived today - thanks @BurghBookAddict - a bright spot in the day as I could start on a new #LMPBC #GroupK book 📖 One chapter read so far and it‘s such fun reading the other comments.

I‘ve always loved Jennifer Weiner books because she is willing to write fiction that resonates with the average woman‘s experiences and realities. This book touched on prescription addiction in an upper class family. A worthwhile read. #chicklit #summer

This is my brother, with his son. They are both gone now, my brother directly as a result of drug use, and the baby because he had the horrible luck to be born into a bad situation. They are just two of many more than my family's share of losses due to drug or alcohol abuse. I don't drink or do drugs - ever - so I'm always looking for books that can help me understand. This one was amazing. Five stars. Ten stars. All. The. Stars. #currentread

This book... wow... an incredibly real look at how quickly someone can spiral down into addiction. Almost 2 years ago I had a friend overdose on heroin and not a day goes by that I wonder if I couldn't have done more for him! I have a feeling that this book will stay with me for some time to come!

LittlePixels My family has had more than its share of people with addiction problems (including 4 deaths due to drugs). This book looks right in my wheelhouse. 3y
Kshakal @LittlePixels this book would definitely be in your wheelhouse... I am so sorry that you and your family has had to deal with addiction in such a major way 3y
LittlePixels I just started this last night, and I'm loving it already! 3y

I thought this was a PERFECT description of how easy you can spiral into addiction. Some of my clients have explained this scenario to me-except for them it leads to heroin use because it's cheaper than pills on the street. I wish I would have known it was abridged though... I would have liked to listen/read the whole thing!

LittlePixels I'm just starting this, and your list made me quickly go check to see if mine is abridged, too (it isn't). Why do they still do that?! 3y

I really liked this book. The story was extremely compelling. I could feel what the characters felt. I really liked the way she wrote this and it was different for her style which I also really enjoyed. I definitely recommend this one. It's a great book for those of us who feel the stress of every day and need something to relate to.

So-so. The addiction part delivers: self-justification, desperation, lies. But the recovery part is weak. She admits she's an addict: Cured! Some therapy, yoga, a dog, and all is well. No humility. No insight. No character change. In this niche, M Keyes is stronger.

My mom recommended this book because she felt like I had a lot in common with the main character - an overly stressed mom who turns to pills to cope with life. I need to have a talk with my mother apparently!!!!

SusanInTiburon But she said it with love ... 😅 4y
TheBookishleigh @Susanintiburon - at least she didn't say it with an intervention!!! 4y
