Book Review: Untamed By Glennon Doyle


Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family, and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each member’s ability to bring her full self to the table. And it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts so that we become women who can finally look at ourselves and say: There She Is.


This novel should say memoir in-front of it as that is what it basically was.

I found her to be a bit of a hypocrite at times because she goes on about her methods to have balance in your emotions however she seemed to have lacked one very important thing: empathy.

Not to bring the whole racism part in but using the word ‘caged’ is not a good metaphor if you are trying to entice all women to read this.

I just couldn’t get into her attitude, whilst she has some good points. She is a bit of a hypocrite as you should have a good balance instead of being very, very selfish which she is in my opinion.

2/5 Stars
