Review: Full Share by Eliza Freed

Posted on


Nora Hargrove’s post-grad life includes a horrific entry-level job, a cave of an apartment, and a strict avoidance of all interpersonal relationships. She knows only one thing about herself—she wants to be left alone.

Avoiding her mother’s forced family time, she seeks solitude on her own terms. In a poorly ventilated, overcrowded Dewey Beach rental, she discovers there’s no place to hide. Not from yourself, not from your life, and not from love. This is the story of Nora Hargrove’s full share.

I learned the healing power of a good bloody Mary and a dip in the Atlantic. I kayaked in the dead of night and witnessed the only shooting star I’ve ever seen. I fell in love on a bed made of pallets. I lived.

Life is deep. Dive in.

My Review

“Life is deep, Nora. Dive in.”

“You fit perfectly with me. You’re so tiny.” “Don’t break me.” “I won’t, Nora Hargrove.”

Full Share is my first book by Eliza Freed and definitely won’t be my last. This story is well written and captivating. It sucks you in from the very first page and has you dying to know what will happen next. Full Share follows Nora on her quest of life. Traumatized by her mother at a young age, Nora has avoided men and all types of relationships. She has a terrible job that’s going nowhere fast and is content to live and just be alone. In an attempt to seek even more solitude, Nora finds herself spending her free time in a severely overcrowded beach rental. That’s leaving her with nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. But, this experience might just be with Nora needs to finally start living her life.

Full Share will take you on one crazy emotional journey. The characters are a lot of fun and so easy to connect with and relate to. They have a very real feel to them, making you want to know more about them and their stories. Full Share will make you laugh at times, and leave you shaking your head at others. This story does deal with some complex issues, but they are handled really well.

Full Share is not just a love story. It is a story of finding yourself again. It’s a story of learning to move on and not let your past define you. It’s a story about taking risks and falling in love.
