The Waiting Place by Eileen Button


The Waiting Place is a collection of essays inspired by different moments and events in Eileen Button’s life, from childhood times to present times.

The book is very well written and I have to say that I laughed out loud so many times reading this book … she is so funny you will instantly fall in love with the book and have a hard time letting it out of your hands until you finish it. It happened to me J

I loved the fact that she is so open and honest about the events she talks about in the book - her waiting places -  that you can’t help but feel very comfortable "listening" to her life, as if in a coffee shop with your best friend talking about life. And the fact that she is very funny contributes to this as well!

I loved the book so much that I was sad when I finished it, I wanted more of it! So I would definitely recommend this book to those of you who want to learn how to make the best out of your waiting places and to those of you who want to read a really good book and laugh out loud reading it but at the same time learning something valuable for your lives, because as the author concludes:
… to live is to wait. It’s how we wait that makes all the difference.
