The book is obviously a profoundly personal exploration, and I appreciated the courage of that. BUT the journey - she calls it the 'hero's journey' and 'our shared journey' - is universal, as her verbiage here implies. THE DRIVE is full of images, symbols, snippets of memories, feelings, longings, recriminations, ideas, hopes, insights, etc. that are utterly engaging! That's the goal of many literary endeavors, but the accomplishment of few works. Ms. Todd provides multiple points of access for ANY reader - regardless of ideology - and invites them to free-associate with the images, emotions, and ideas. Through a beautiful kind of strength and vulnerability, Ms. Todd opens herself up, and her ultimate gift to those willing to try to make that 'journey' - the literal and figurative 'DRIVE' - with her is the wonderful opportunity for self-reflection.
