Jamie here, here.

Sherrie I'm still reading "The Liars Club", however your comment - Her writing style seems jarring; she has no problem jumping around in time in the middle of a paragraph - rings so very true. I "like" the book but her writing style is hinky.

Erin I second your sentiments, I found it such a chore to read. I forced myself to finish it, waiting to feel the emotions that other readers said they felt...and the only emotion that came to me was "meh".

Sarah B. Nice; yours is the review that I sat down hoping to write! I'll probably just put a link to yours in my review. ;-)

Lindsay I was just thinking the same thing about the glass castle. I just finished the new Jeannette walls book Half Broke Horses (excellent by the way) before starting Liar's Club and am extremely disappointed in it. Booooooring! And I don't like her writing style at all. Trying to trudge through it for book club.

Becky These reviews alone made me decide to NOT read this book selected by my book club.

"jarring" is definitely the word that rings with me at the confusion points. It was a muddle.

message 8: by Melissa (new)

Melissa I totally agree with your review! Especially when you mention it not comparing to the glass castle. I read this because GR recommended this based off of my rating of the glass castle....so disappointing! Glad to know I am not alone; just trying to get through it at this point so I can crack open half broken horses. Ugh!

Tammie Agree!

message 10: by Alicia (new)

Alicia Rondos Fully agree! She's got a bit if arrogance and is shameless about showing it.

Jen Couldn't have said this any better. Was very disappointed after reading the Glass Castle

message 12: by Erica (new)

Erica 19 pages in and I completely agree with you on her writing style, it's tough to keep track. With the Glass Castle being my favorite of childhood memoirs, I'm not very thrilled about reading the rest of this book.

message 13: by Margaret (new)

Margaret I liked it better than glass castles. 5 stars.

message 14: by Sonia (new)

Sonia Rodriguez I could not continue reading this book. A child being hurt that way remembers every little detail, including cobwebs on the wall? Not for me.

message 15: by Jami (new)

Jami I completely agree.
