Claire’s story is moving: a young girl, dragged into a the cult of an unwinnable game. From her early involvement in this “harmless” pursuit, we begin to see the true horror of what she went through and how it affected her ability to live her life. A particularly moving part is where, towards the end of the book, she successfully walks by a multi-storey car park without feeling the need to walk around it. Inspiring.
Good, but not great by bookworm331
Most people who pick up this book will never before have heard about Consecutive Number Plate Spotting (CNPS) or CNPS Addiction Relapse Syndrome (CARS), but this is a real problem that affects a significant minority of people. I myself was diagnoses with CNPS addiction several years ago, and this book was a great reminder of the kinds of things I had to struggle through.
The biggest problem for many CNPS addicts is how alone it can feel. I’m sure if I’d had this book when I was actually a sufferer, I could have recovered a lot sooner.
Of course, with the introduction of the new British number plate styles, number plates suitable for CNPS are becoming rarer, and the disease will slowly disappear too. This book, while an inspiring story, comes a few years too late to help people suffering from CNPS addiction today. In addition, it lacks information on CNPS withdrawal symptoms, which caused me difficulty for some time after I was “cured.” Still, a great story.
i dont get it by whiner
GOD knew that number plates would be dangerous when he wrote Revelations 13:16-18 and warned us all about this mark of the beast I really feel for the poor souls who have been trapped by this dangerous cult and pray for them every day but unless they repent then GOD will strike them down and they will answer to S*TAN!
