015 - Running in Circles

Running in Circles, is a decent book written by an author I have never heard of. Kim Engelmann is a pastor at a Presbyterian Church in California. She tells her story and how she worked through the difficulty in which she was raised. Engelmann has a great deal to say about abuse in all it’s forms. Throughout the book you will find her view on physical and alcohol and verbal abuse.

Her book tries to get the reader to “get out of the hamster wheel.” The hamster wheel is the symbol of the way people live their lives in cycles. However, the book quickly begins to repeat itself leaving the reader is a hamster wheel of sorts. This book wasn’t bad, but I don’t think it’s worth the time it takes to read it.
