What I liked about the book

From a young age, we’re told that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. But how true is this statement? In her book, “What Doesn’t Kill Us: How Freezing Water, Extreme Altitude and Environmental Conditioning Will Renew Our Lost Evolutionary Strength”( Simon & Schuster, 2017), journalist Scott Carney explores the limits of human endurance and resilience.

Carney takes the reader on a journey to meet with people who have pushed their bodies to the brink of death and lived to tell the tale. He also speaks with scientists who are investigating why some people are able to withstand seemingly impossible conditions.

What I liked about the book is that it challenges the idea that we’ve lost touch with our evolutionary past. Carney argues that we are still capable of great feats of strength and endurance if we put our minds to it. He also provides readers with practical tips on how they can tap into their own hidden reserves of strength.

If you’re looking for an inspiring read about the human potential, I would recommend “What Doesn’t Kill Us” by Scott Carney.

What I didn’t like about the book

There are plenty of things to like about Liz Nugent’s debut novel, Unravelling Oliver. It’s a book that’s full of surprises, with characters that are so expertly drawn that they feel like people you know. However, there are also a few things that I didn’t love about the book. Here are three of them.

First, the book is narrated by Oliver, the sociopathic main character. This is an interesting choice, but it means that we only ever see things from his perspective. As a result, the other characters in the book never really get a chance to shine. I would have liked to see more of their stories.

Second, the ending was a bit abrupt for me. I felt like there were still some loose ends that needed to be tied up. Perhaps this was intentional on the author’s part, but it left me feeling a bit unsatisfied.

Finally, I found Oliver to be a bit too unlikable at times. He’s supposed to be a sociopath, so I don’t expect him to be terribly sympathetic, but there were moments when I just wanted to shake him and tell him to get his act together.

Overall, I did enjoy Unravelling Oliver and I would recommend it to fans of psychological thrillers. However, it’s not perfect and there are definitely some flaws that keep it from being a five-star read for me.

The book’s impact on me

When I first started reading “What Doesn’t Kill You”, I will admit that I was a bit hesitant. I wasn’t sure if I was ready to read a book about someone else’s battle with addiction and eating disorders. However, I was quickly drawn in by the rawness of the author’s writing. She doesn’t sugarcoat her struggles, and this brutal honesty is what makes the book so powerful.

The book had a profound impact on me. As someone who has battled with mental health issues for most of my life, it was refreshing to read about someone who has come out on the other side. The author’s story is one of hope and resilience, and it is an important reminder that we are not alone in our struggles. If you are looking for a book that will make you laugh, cry, and think, then I would highly recommend “What Doesn’t Kill You”.

Would I recommend this book?

Would I recommend this book? In a word, yes. “What Doesn’t Kill You” is an excellent thriller with a well-constructed plot and believable characters. The author does an outstanding job of creating suspense and keeping the reader guessing until the very end. I highly recommend this book to fans of the genre.


In conclusion, “What Doesn’t Kill You” is an excellent book that provides a rare look inside the world of crime and addiction. Through the eyes of someone who has lived it, we are able to see the reality of what it is like to be addicted and the struggles that come with trying to break free. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand addiction and its effects on individuals and families.

Further thoughts

What I found most inspiring about Williams’s story was her determination to live life to the fullest despite her diagnosis. In the face of adversity, she remains positive and upbeat, approaching each day with a sense of humor. What Doesn’t Kill You is an inspiring account of one woman’s fight against cancer.
