it was ok
bookshelves: american, 2010, non-fiction, women-authors, 2011, for-work, biographical, documentary, crosscultural, twenty-first-century, sxviolence, rereads
Read from July 26, 2010 to July 28, 2011

Translated it in Bulgarian.

For the most part I found it a bit whiny, repetitive and definitely disjointed. Most of the conclusions I suspect we should regard as "implied" were basically spelled out. However, it's easy to read, and the author certainly can write.

REREAD UPDATE: Worse on reread. The author seems insecure, babbling, alternately boasting and whining; the writing is scattered and disengaging.
