About this deal

Brianna comes across as deeply human, as a woman who has accepted herself for her faults, her mistakes, her regrets, and her charms. Listening to this trailblazing woman tell her story with all of the real and raw emotions is unlike anything you’ll experience. The 1 star comments read like a manifesto of people who have never once made a mistake, never done anything wrong, don’t have any exes who would say a bad word about them, and have never hurt or betrayed a friend in their life. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. It takes all kinds, and I’m sure this is more for her fans and less for those who actually live a comparable life or like to read regularly.

By completing your purchase, you agree to Audible's Conditions of Use and authorise Audible to charge your designated card or any other card on file. This time it was different, there was no image of false happiness for Madia to worry about up-keeping, her own emotions of fear, trauma, and triumph were front and center. Welp can’t wait to laugh and I’m sure cry while reading this book of such a wild spirited woman and her trustee group of dogs.

Since divorcing her husband, Brianna has done nothing but participate joyfully in the capitalist culture she claims to have fought against by purchasing land and a new car, expensive jewelry, going on a month-long vacation to another country during a pandemic, and shilling stickers/whiskey/dog beds to her oblivious followers. You don’t have to like someone or their work but being so filled with hate over a tragic accident that happened with her dog (whether she was reckless or not… it was an accident) and over her divorce from her husband (every story has two sides and picking sides is silly when you’re a stranger) is absurd. Goodreads is not a forum for people to rate whether they “like Brianna Madia” … it’s a forum to discuss, review, recommend (or not) a book … which at this point none of the reviewers have read since it hasn’t been released yet (discounting any advance copies that may have been released).

I will undoubtedly come back to the parts of this book that describe desert landscapes and solo adventures.She tells her stories that many may relate to, but with a depth of understanding that most of us never reach on our own. She talks of feeling like a failure in the wake of an accident with her dog, but there's untruths and discrepancies between the book and her posts on Instagram. The beautiful descriptions of the scenery nearly put you there and watching how she describes the outside world while trying to navigate the inside one, helps you see the world through her eyes. The fact that she chooses to share those vulnerabilities with thousands of people, despite knowing that the same type of people who have left these negative reviews are hanging on to every word, is admirable. I relate to her book a lot having grown up in CT and then going west in a van living out of my car for almost a year.

Living on her land and exploring the desert around her is a beautiful life, and absolutely unconventional and interesting. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. Nowhere for Very Long is the true story of a woman learning and unlearning, from backroads to breakdowns, from married to solo, and finally, from lost to found to lost again . Brianna doesn’t just tell you that she learned from her mistakes, she tells you how she makes the mistakes again but better.Brianna Madia has lived a life of relentless intention, traveling the deserts of the American West in an old Ford van. I cannot possibly say enough about her wit, wisdom, strength, courage, and ability to let us all into her one of a kind life. I read in 2 days and it is the type of book that makes you ponder what more you can do with your life. I especially appreciate how she approaches topics of addiction and marriage/family struggles - her approach is nuanced in a way that doesn't vilify others, and validates her own feelings while acknowledging and giving space for the feelings and perspectives of the other individuals involved.
