Unlocked Review

Unlocked was definitely a book with a theme. A theme of unhappiness and having been too giving in a world that will take advantage of it, which I've also experienced in my life. I felt bad for the central character though as repeatedly she seemed to be getting taken advantage of by people who played on her desire to be loved.
I am glad that the author added a note at the end to explain that a lot of it was based on her personal experiences and that she used writing as a type of therapy as it helped clarify exactly what I had already started wondering.
Perhaps we should all write a cathartic book of this type as I'm sure we all have our past hurts to work through and if it seems to have worked as well as she says it did, then why not?
