A Very Long Way

A Very Long Way by [Naomi Fryers]

A Very Long Way by Naomi Fryers tells the fascinating true story of her complex, challenging and sometimes humorous journey through life. She tells us of her life from grade ten onwards and it is so full of big impacting life situations that readers will be left shocked more often than not.

This emotionally-resonant memoir includes many situations that young adults and new adults face in society. This helps the reader relate to the author among the partying and heartbreak, and even death, that fills this story.

Naomi Fryers is observant and her quality writing ensures readers get a clear picture of the story that is unfolding. Set in the semi-urban town of Epping, Victoria, this enthralling memoir tells a poignant coming of age story of a girl into a woman amidst the myriad of struggles that life presents. She is hit by many hard and hurtful things that I was personally able to relate to. That is the one thing this book does so beautifully, it makes readers relate and feel connected.

The fact that this book includes mental health awareness is something that I greatly appreciated because I feel that this is an essential aspect that is ignored today. Yet, Naomi narrates her life perfectly with no filler narration and explicitly tells us she was depressed, suicidal, and so hurt with life.

The author’s fierce will to express herself while holding nothing back takes readers on a very deep exploration of character, much deeper and more candid than I was expecting, but appreciated. And because of this we get a better understanding of mental health.

She is a resilient spirit with words that leave an impact. Naomi Freyer’s detailed and in-depth explanation of every emotion and scene is terrific, coupled with riveting storytelling skills readers will surely be glued to the pages.

A Very Long Way is a short but potent memoir that explores mental health issues, relationship, and so much more. This is a stirring and well crafted-story that will stay with you long after you’ve put the book down.
