Year 4, Book 30

30. Songs from a Lead-Lined Room: Notes–High and Low–from my Journey Through Breast Cancer and Radiation by Suzanne Strempek Shea
This is the third book I’ve read by this author. She is also a fiction writer, although I haven’t read any of those books. From what I can tell this book is her first foray into non-fiction, and I didn’t enjoy it as much as the later two books that I read. It may be because this is her first attempt at non-fiction and she didn’t quite have the feel for it yet, or perhaps because the book was crafted out of a diary she kept while undergoing radiation for breast cancer. I just had a hard time getting into the book at all, and even though it follows a certain timeline and revolves around a common theme it seemed a bit disjointed to me. I give it a 5 out of 10.
