Summary – LOVE The Beat Goes On

When your cardiologist tells you to “Get your affairs in order, your heart condition is incurable,” what do you do? In 2008 that’s exactly what happened to Lynda Filler. 

Lynda shares her journey in the typical fast-paced, edgy, in-your-face style she’s known for in her novels. She’s hard-hitting and tells you exactly how it is. She writes about romantic experiences that may shock you but makes no apologies for her unconventional lifestyle. Nor does she hold back taking responsibility for the things that she believes created her dis-ease.

First Thoughts

I enjoy a good memoir and love reading other people’s stories. So, when the author approached me about this book, I was more than happy to give it a shot.

Book Cover

I really enjoy the cover. It’s simple, but the colors really stands out and the heartbeat in the background tells a lot.

Plot

Lynda, the author, tells her story about when she was diagnosed with a heart disease that was supposedly incurable. She goes through all the steps of denial and acceptance, doing the right things and doing the wrong things, keeping it to yourself and talking to someone about it.

Since this is a memoir, it’s hard to discuss the “plot” of what happens. The majority, if not all, of what occurs in this book, so I can’t say whether it “worked” for me or not. The message came across nicely. I sympathized with the protagonist and her story was interesting to read.

Writing Style

This book was a quick read and it was easy to read as well. The narration was as though the author is sitting in a coffee shop with her readers. It was personable. However, there were some parts of the book that I felt like the author forgot it is, in fact, a book.

Overall

This was an insightful memoir. I enjoyed reading the author’s story. There were a lot of medical terms that were explained well without info-dumping. It was a good read overall.
