Comments How to be Alive

  • Kristin Contino

    This was my first novel by Mary Chris Escobar and I'm really looking forward to reading another one! From Rome and Venice to Key West and Richmond, I loved following the characters in this story on their travels and was sad when the book ended. The tone reminded me of an Emily Giffin novel, like chatting with a friend. Definitely one to pack for your next trip!


  • Meredith Stoddard

    The book starts with Jen Emerson attempting to get back to something like a normal life after her fiance dies in a car accident. The trouble is that when Jen starts reflecting on that life, she realizes that not only isn't it the life she and her fiance planned for themselves, but that their relationship wasn't what all it was cracked up to be. She's assisted in this realization by the escalating harassment and manipulations of her fiance's high school sweetheart. She attempts to start a new lif [...]

    I loved this author’s first novel, Neverending Beginnings and was so excited for this one. It did not disappoint! Mary Chris Escobar is quickly becoming one of my favorites!Ok, so I want to jump right in and tell you about the twist in this book, but as a firm believer in spoiler-free reviews I will never do that. BUT let me just say there is a twist at the end that had me shouting out loud, “Are you kidding me?!” But don’t worry, it’s a twist you’re going to love!How to Be Alive is [...]

    The original idea for this novel was just the tiny spark of a thought that I wanted to write a story about a main character who dated her RA in college. I am certain that this is directly related to my unabashed love of the late 1990s television show Felicity.I finished How to be Alive nearly three years before it was published. I had written this entire story, but something just didn't feel right about it. Instead of moving forward with editing and revising it, I filed it away, figuring it woul [...]

    Having never read a book by Mary Chris Escobar I wasn’t sure what to expect, but on the recommendation of a friend I decided to read “How to be Alive.” I found her style of writing to be conversational as if she was sitting next to me telling me a story. The story flowed easily from scene to scene, chapter to chapter. I’m looking forward to reading more of her work.Jen was an intelligent, funny, realistic character. She captivated me from the first page and held me in her grips to the ve [...]

    I won a free copy of How to be Alive from First Reads and I am ever so happy that I did. I was super happily surprised by this book. The story follows the story of Jenn, who is dealing with the death of her fiance (which is not a spoiler cause it happens on page 1). My favorite part is that her journey isn't sad. There are sad parts but it mostly just followers her journey into trying to follow her dreams. This book surprised me and made be smile. I definitly say to check it out if you're into [...]


  • Leta McCurry

    I enjoyed this book. The only reason I didn't rate it higher is because I thought it was weak in a couple of places - particularly in the incident that caused the conflict between the two main characters. I thought the intenisty of Jen's animosity toward Andrew wasn't warranted by the falling out they had. However, this was an entertaining read and I recommend it.


  • Robin perez

    I loved the book. It was well written and once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. Very emotional. Nice twist at the end and love her rediscovering herself and realizing what she really was going through before the tragedy.


  • Shannon Reilly

    I absolutely LOVED this book! It was so well written, and intriguing and you weren't quite sure where the story would go as you kept reading. I cannot wait to dive into some of Mary Chris Escobar's others books!


  • Lizh

    The plot was well paced. I didn't love the main character because although she was very bright she couldn't speak her mind. I think she found her voice--or at least started to look for it.
