Recent Comments "Empty Roads & Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps"
I've been reading this for three days and now I'm kind off speechless. I thought that what I was up to read was a story of a young girls life, but only after a few pages I realized it's so much more. It's about the real life and the fighting and the mistakes that in the end will become a part of who you are. It made me realize things that I never thought of before, and it made me see things differently. I actually still don't know exactly what to say, cause there's so much feelings inside me. I' [...]
I haven't finished reading this book yet, I've only just begun But I can say that it was worthy of me saying something about it. I never leave reviews really, so this book just has to be that good for me to write about it. My thoughts? It feels like I'm reading about myself. Charlotte and I are as opposite in beliefs as can be, but yet we are the same. Simply put, the words in this book make me feel less alone in my thoughts. less alone in chasing my dreams less alone in things I wish to do. The [...]
This is a book that many people are going to take in a very different way, and all I can do is tell you how this inspired me. Charlotte's story is a rare one, but the sentiments behind every motive and action is something we all feel at some point in our life. This is uniquely beautiful, every word breathes honesty, pain, struggle and lust for life. Soaked with Charlotte's own inspirations in life, it's natural that this pours into your own life. This was certainly the case for me. Very few peop [...]
This book is a beautiful journey. Charlotte's words are like magic and you just can't stop reading. This book gave me answers to life that I didn't know I was looking for!
I'm torn as to what my overall appraisal of Empty Roads & Broken Bottles should be. Just as the story is full of highs and lows, the quality of the telling is the same. Near the beginning Eriksson explained her goal in chronicling her journey of self-discovery like this:"I'm here to kill your hero. I'm here to tell you about the real climb, the real mountain; the stepping-stones that break, the beasts that no one warned me about, the storm that killed my fire and stole my friends."I thought [...]
The first 60 pages were terrific,her diary section wasn't,the last 20 pages very good.I would read some of it,then listen to some of her music which I really liked.She seemed to be going through a lot of growing pains which was o.k.3.5 stars,and I will read her other stuff.
I really wanted to love this book. I was sure that I would. But, at 46% completed, I was really unhappy with it. If you feel the same as I do, don't stop because it really gets much better.I'm so torn which my rating though, because I would've said 2 stars based on the first half and 4 stars based on the second half. I guess that means I have to give a 3 :|Charlotte Eriksson has some beautiful words. She has a beautiful way of talking about her life and experiences she's had. Unfortunately a lot [...]
I've spent the last few hours trying to string words together to make up some sort of way to tell you, show you, how to explain how proud I am of Charlotte, and this book, her journey. I stayed up last night to finish reading because I couldn’t put it down, and even now I still don’t know what to say or to feel and for once that’s a good thing.It's hard to say anything about someone who made you believe in something again but it was a privilege to see the world through her eyes for those f [...]
This book was such an emotional and beautiful experience that really consumed my soul while reading it I felt like I was there in person with her on her amazing journey every step of the way, This book made me cry it made me smile and it made me realise facts about myself it is a truly emotional and inspiring reading experience. I have finished it already and I am starting it again because I was sad when it was finished. I would recommend this book to anyone who can appreciate the genius and bri [...]
By far one of the simplest and yet most profound books I've ever read. In my search for greater wisdom and understanding in life, I've read ancient words from wise old men of every age, and never have I felt a stronger connection than with this twenty something girl from Sweden. Her words spoke to my heart. She has inspired me to continue the pursuit of my dream, to keep moving forward, to believe that my story will both bring me to where I need to be, and bring to me what I need too. Amazing bo [...]
It's been a while since I read a book that hit me like this one did. While it may not be the best written book, it has a sort of flow to it that reads well. The story is definitely there, and some of the language used really turns this story into an art piece. The way Charlotte wrote this, combined with the content, really felt to me like she was inside my head, pulling thoughts and feelings from my mind, and putting them onto the page as she wrote. This is truly an inspiring story, and worth mu [...]
I loved it. It was simply amazing. I found it very interesting, it makes you think about life.
Great story of self discovery a page turner!
This is the true journey of Charlotte Eriksson. Right from the start, I felt a connection and familiarity with her thoughts. I've never been a conventional thinker. I've always felt different. While people around me find comfort doing normal things that have been done billions of times before with no end, living normal lives that have been lived billions of times before, I have not. People find comfort in material things that will no longer be with them when they die. Sometimes I feel like my ey [...]
I wanted to write this as soon as I finished the book, while all the thoughts and feelings this book gave me are intact. I love Charlotte's songs, they always struck me as incredibly personal and relatable. I knew her book wouldn't be less than that. While I agree some things seem to be said more than once (hence the 4 stars), the overall quality of the writing is great. Cause I lay now in my bed, writing this, feeling like I've lived what she lived. Feeling the struggles, the extasy, the pain. [...]
Beautifully written and philosophically sound! I no longer feel alone in the way that my brain works, in how I feel what I feel, in knowing that I am different but the same. Life is beautiful but can be harsh and lovely at the same time. It's the creativity in life that keeps me alive and going. Charlotte Eriksson was brave enough to share her brain and her heart in a way that few others have been able to. Her philosophies about life and how she got there are hauntingly beautiful.
This is seriously one of the best things I've ever read. I relate to every single line that Eriksson writes and every feeling she felt through her journey. Her story is so beautiful and so inspiring. I find myself flipping through this book all the time and rereading the lines that I highlightedST READ.
accidently stumbled upon this creative creature that touched my life deeper than she probably realizes. absolutely breathtaking book that left me think for days after i have finished it. a must-read, esp. for all those lost and confused you will find a certain refugee in those pages, guaranteed.
I believe we discover books at certain moments in our,lives to guide us towards a better understanding of ourselves and those around us. This book is perfect for anyone at any point in their lives, ready and waiting to guide you.
Charlotte Eriksson "Empty roads & Broken Bottles in search of the Great Perhaps" Is the first book I read of Charlottes and I loved it and couldn't put it down!!! Please check this book out!!! You won't be disappointed :)
This book deserves a rating of more than 5 stars! Every single line was something I can relate to so I guess this was personally written for me. New fave book
This book was on my asap list. I think it was the quotes that drew me in, but I don't remember how it got there to begin with. But when I stumbled on it already there, read quotes from it, I knew I had to own it and read the whole thing.Because I could relate.Not to giving up everything and traveling abroad or pursuing music.But to the desire for freedom.To the pain inside that spills over, and out on paper or art or long conversations you're having with yourself or authours, thinkers or random [...]
This book was really good. She talked about her life and her travel so beautifully and it all just flowed together. She put it together like a perfect puzzle. She talked about heart ache and how she never stayed in one place for too long. She doesn't want to stay in one place for too long because then she will get attached and she doesn't want to get attached to anyone. If she does its hard for her when she moves on to some place new. She only carries her guitar with her. Her guitar is like her [...]
"I'm here to kill your hero. I'm here to tell you about the real climb, the real mountain; the stepping-stones that break, the beasts that no one warned me about, the storm that killed my fire and stole my friends."It's been a while since I read a book that hit me like this one did. A journey to self discovery. Feeling lost lately? This book is for you.
Charlotte Eriksson is such a phenomenal writer. I’ve been looking for raw and authentic words for the last few months, and she did not disappoint. “. it. Breathe it. Let it consume you, write it on your skin, and your very existence shall be a great story.”Highly recommend.
I don't know what to say. This book got me in a really bad moment of my life & now I'm unsure about everything. My lifegoals just vanished right in this moment & I don't know what do do- what to think now.
Overall, I think Eriksson is an inspiring artist. I've listened to her on a couple of podcasts and she comes across as earthy and real.I began following her Facebook page and was surprised to find my positive (and supportive) comments were deleted. I had 'liked' Charlotte's page with my 'Facebook Artist Page' as I don't have a personal FB account that I use. I wondered perhaps if she thought I was trying to promote myself on her Page. Then another artist I spoke to who also (use to) follow Charl [...]
I guess i liked the book,she had described her feelings so clear and honest and i think it's one of the books you should probably read, if you are doing self development stuff or you are lost and need some help from some one who felt the same but i guess it would be so much better if Charlotte had described the events that happened to her so readers would understand better ( you know the uphill battle she's been through), for example when she described her visit to a gallery in a little town and [...]
Charlotte Eriksson is musician, singer, and performer; but it was her novel: "Empty Roads & Broken Bottles that introduced me to her." Charlotte’s novel about an 18-year-old wanderess vagabonding penniless around the UK—just her guitar case and her sack: a pen and a notebook where she balanced her time-sensitive schedule for a rockstar’s five-year plan with her anti-time, anti-schedule maxims and Zen approaches for living in the moment, was less a novel than it was a dissociative hallu [...]
