    One thought on “Falling Apart in One Piece: One Optimist's Journey Through the Hell of Divorce”

    1. There are about 20 30 pages of really good material in this book, but I m just not able to feel exceptionally sympathetic for a narrator who moans about the difficulties of being a single mother but who has a full time nanny, whose ex takes her child not only on a regular basis but overnight Do I care if her ski vacation is ruined by her ex s text messages Nah Do I care that she s worried about how she s going to pay back the FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS her parents loan her to do home repairs Nah Do [...]

    2. My Review and Description Divorce, you say Is there something you are not telling us , you may be saying to yourself when reading this.I would respond No No secrets here I am just a fan of well written memoirs I believe we all have a story to tell and if you can tell yours and have others learn from it, then you ve done a good job Stacy Morrison does just that She wrote an excellent memoir not only about her divorce but of her struggles with being a new mom, a single parent, a busy professional, [...]

    3. If this is how a GOOD divorce goes, I REALLY REALLY hope I never have to go through it, especially if there are children in the picture Kudos to Stacy for her honesty, and I am so glad she eventually emerged strong and happy, and full of love for life.

    4. Most of my friends will tell you that I am not really a self help kinda gal I read for pleasure thus the name of this blog I have to do a fair amount of reading to learn for my job, so my personal reading tends to lean towards the lost in a book category A nice balance of fluff and challenging fare.That said, there are so many memoirs out there which actually fall into the category of reading I like to do Stacy Morrison s book Falling Apart in One Piece ticked a whole bunch of boxes for me well [...]

    5. Divorce It s nearly a dirty word Personally, I hate it I hate that I ve ever been through it I hate that I ve seen people hurt by it But, it s a sad reality in our society and so I think it s important that it s talked about People in the middle of a divorce need to know that all of their fears, anxieties, anger, sadness is totally normal and that they are not alone.Stacy Morrison s book, Falling Apart in One Piece One Optimist s Journey Through the Hell of Divorce, is such an amazing story of h [...]

    6. Kudos, to the writer for opening herself up like this to the world That in and of itself takes an incredible amount of courage While it might have been very cathartic for her As a reader I found it painfully repetitive and dull The problems of having to borrow a huge sum of money from her parents she knew she could pay back, complaining about having to pay off and fire nannies are there any day care s in NY , and getting amicably fired from one dream job and hired at an even better dream jobok a [...]

    7. Phew I don t have to write the story of my divorce Stacy Morrison has done it for me, and better than I ever could have in Falling Apart in One Piece One Optimist s Journey Through the Hell of Divorce.One day, and seemingly out of nowhere, Stacy s husband Chris declared he was done with their marriage Morrison takes the reader through the journey of divorce, destruction, and rebuilding in an impeccably written memoir The piles of troubles that only begin with her divorce are revealed honestly, w [...]

    8. While the book had some truly beautiful moments of raw honesty, overall I couldn t help but feel the author was trying too hard to convince us she could out Dalai the Lama Her perfectly tempered, perfectly magnanimous, perfectly reasoned response to every situation simply strained credibility When she finally referred to herself as a Zen warrior goddess, in jest or not, my eyes rolled so hard I m surprised I remained conscious If this is the fault of bad editing, that took a real and raw story a [...]

    9. I read this book for multiple reasons My friend is going through a divorce so I hoped to understand it a bit and maybe get some insight I like reading different types of memoirs divorce is a topic that in my mind is something I hopefully will never have to face I felt very bad for how much sadness Stacey went through I hope she s very happy currently.

    10. I love this book I thought that it s a great book for anyone who does not wish to be embroiled in a bitter and nasty divorce And yes, you don t have to be embroiled in a better a nasty divorce It s A choice You can t control what your spouse does, but you can control what you say and how you behave And yes I m speaking from personal experience.

    11. Welcome to Three Book Third Thursdays This month, the three books under discussion are Lift, by Kelly Corrigan Falling Apart in One Piece One Optimist s Journey Through the Hell of Divorce, by Stacy Morrison and This Is Not the Story You Think It Is A Season of Unlikely Happiness, by Laura Munson Please note that these are books I have read on my own I was not given review copies of these books.Lift is a letter by Corrigan to her two young daughters, in which she describes her perspective on the [...]

    12. While from the start it was apparent that Falling Apart in One Piece is A Good Book, I had a hard time relating to Stacy in the beginning for one, I am not an optimist I identified with Chris, Stacy s ex husband he was restless in his marriage, felt trapped, and Just Wanted Out so he could have room to breathe In the only serious relationship I ve had, I felt the exact same way It was as if the roles were reversed Stacy as my ex only with a lot less optimism on his part , and Chris as me But at [...]

    13. While I felt like the author was a little too proud of her superior intelligence and many accomplishments for a woman her age, I gained some insight from falling apart in one piece I learned that it really is true that no one who hasn t experienced the roller coaster ride of divorce can fully understand what you re going through She described lying on the kitchen floor bawling full out and then noticing there were crumbs underneath the stove She told about losing friends because they belonged t [...]

    14. Falling apart in one piece One optimist s journey through the hell of divorce is author, Stacy Morrison s memoir In this book, she shares her story of how her marriage came crumbling down around her and how eventually, she grew from it I must admit that I was not really feeling this book and gave up on it about a third of the way in I did skim the rest of the book but didn t feel like I really needed to read any I did not take away anything from it, other than the fact that Ms Morrison is better [...]

    15. What I Can Tell You I read this book last night in just a few hours Stacy has lived through one of my biggest fears Being married is hard work There are plenty of ups and downs in all relationships but when Stacy s husband tells her he s done you immediately want to hate him How could anyone just decide one day they are done All parties of a relationship have their own reality and it may not be the mirror image of yours What Stacy does with dignity, humor and wisdom is see her role as her marria [...]

    16. I really enjoyed this book most likely because I m currently in the middle of a divorce I do think I would have enjoyed it otherwise, but it s hard to say how much Many of her experiences were different than my own circumstances, of course, but she had many emotions and problems that mirrored my own Reading this was like cheap therapy.

    17. I don t know why I was compelled to read this book But I was And I learned some things And I want my friends to read it so I can discuss it Hint, hint

    18. Very well written book, was captivating.or does an excellent job of writing about how she dealt with the surprise notification by her husband that he wanted out of their marriage, and how she struggled to survive with a very young child and a demanding job as editor in chief of Redbook magazine She writes honestly and intimately about her feelings while handling all that life rains literally upon her during this time A good read for ANYONE, because you just never know when it will happen to you, [...]

    19. Oh man, I wanted to be sympathetic to the author and root for her triumph over the misery that is divorce Unfortunately, I m mostly just confused that the author considers herself an optimist She came across to me as overly whiny and controlling Try as I might, I just could not relate to the author or her struggles As a mom going through a divorce now, I find that odd She s completely freaked out about her financial situation so she can only afford to take a little vacation, by renting a beach h [...]

    20. The only problem I have with this story is that the author seemed to never get mad or at least assertive enough, in my mind, with her lazy, immature, avoidant husband It s great to be cordial and civil but to what extent does it become enabling and excusing of negative behaviors He sounds like a child and he annoyed me throughout the whole book Maybe that s what she was going for If so, it worked.

    21. Stacy cried A lot Constantly About everything In between her tears and accounts of bawling and hiding and denying and sobbing, etc there are nuggets of optimism and some decent advice You must look very patiently to find them Oh, and her ex is an ass.

    22. Very engaging and the pages turned quickly.I could hear her heartbreak and desperation in this passage Please help me understand, I said If you really think this is over and you are done, I beg you to help me get it, to explain it to me enough so that I can see what you see why we can t be together so I have half a chance of being able to move on and let go So I can breathe again someday So I can be a good mother to your son So the entirety of these years we shared is not thrown into doubt So I [...]

    23. Interesting book about divorce, I appreciated the honesty from the author Perhaps a little longer than I would have liked.

    24. Stacy Morrison s memoir Falling Apart in One Piece, which focuses on the before and after of her divorce to her husband of ten years, intrigued me because at the time of the book s publication, Morrison was editor in chief of Redbook magazine, and I am a magazine junkie.Set in New York City, Morrison and her then husband Chris had been together thirteen years with a new baby when one day Chris simply stated from the couch, I m done I m done with this, 3 and as Morrison further explains in great [...]

    25. This seems like a pretty realistic picture of what it s like to divorce I give the author credit for presenting it in a pretty unbiased manner it must be very difficult to present yourself with all your faults, and honestly analyze how your actions contributed to a divorce I think the author is absolutely right that we want to hear about others divorces to see what the signs are She s also right that hearing about everyone else s divorce really doesn t give us any insight into our own relations [...]

    26. Reading this memoir was like going back to day one of going through my divorce I m not sure if it was a good idea or a bad idea to read it The author mentioned how no divorce is the same, but there were so many ways were I felt like I could connect to her, and it felt so good to know I wasn t the only person to feel the way that I feel, especially that feeling of aloneness This story isn t filled with the happy go lucky musings you d expect from the title, considering the author states to be an [...]

    27. Even if you cannot relate to the authors way of life how many of us are running Redbook , it is very easy to relate to the workings of the relationships the author describes I am talking of not only the doomed marriage, but the different friendships, how they change suffer or don t as a result of life.Some aspects of her story were startling in their clarity to situations in my own life This is something that I m not sure if I should be comforted or alarmed about It has certainly given me someth [...]
