In Hungry, the author Robin Smith describes her feelings of "hunger" and "dying to be be" that had plagued her all her life. With the main message being that authenticity is the only way to live. Yet if it were so simple to do then there wouldn't be so many of us striving to tell our truth. And there wouldn't be so many of us seeking out books like this to help us on our journey.

I very much wanted to like the book more than I did. Unfortunately, I don't think that it resonated with me, but I imagine that it would probably resonate with many others out there. I really appreciate the way in which Robin is so open and honest about her own struggles, and how she still can struggle with it now.

Going into the book, I think I was expecting more as far as how we as human beings can lead a more authentic life. Instead the majority of it - at least two-thirds - is Robin's story, and those of friends and clients and strangers. Even though that didn't connect with me personally, I could see that others might be inspired by reading others' stories.

This is my review of Hungry by Robin Smith. I acknowledge that I received this book free from Hay House Publishing to review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment.
