Aside from the fact that this belongs in the fiction rather than non-fiction section, I only recommend reading it if you are looking for insight into the mind of a complete narcissist.
After losing her mother, the author loses her mind and cheats on her husband, uses drugs, gets pregnant, gets an abortion, murders a horse, eats cremated remains, and goes on hiking/hitchhiking adventure that she is extremely unprepared for.
