Review: Snowflake Obsidian by The Hippie

Title: Snowflake Obsidian

Author: The Hippie with Anger Issues

Reviewed for:  Pump Up Your Book Tour

This review will be a little different, because the book itself is a little different.

Snowflake Obsidian is the Memoir of a Cutter. But it doesn’t really focus on the cutting. Instead, it focuses on relationships, including the author’s relationship with herself. It’s about losing friends, gaining friends, and all the life that happens in the mean time.

For a while I was torn about this book. It took a long time for me to read it, even though it’s only 250 pages. It’s hard to read the thoughts of someone who’s depressed, because mostly my reaction is “Oh, get over it already,” even though I know it’s not that easy.

I enjoyed so much reading about the journey the author went through. It’s not easy, learning to not hate yourself, and it’s just so interesting reading about the different therapies (like Willow’s visits to Millie). She even, to an extent, uses art. It was interesting, watching her learn to laugh again, to not feel hollow.

I don’t want to say too much about the contents of the book, because it’s all inter-connected and characters that you think will disappear for the rest of the book either turn up or are mentioned, but I will say that I loved the part about hiding the remote. I giggled a lot.

Also, I learned that Snowflake Obsidian is actually a stone.

Aren't they pretty?

This book was reviewed as part of the Pump Up Your Book tour. I would like to extend my thanks to the author for providing a copy of the book.
