Read from September 02 to October 01, 2011 , read count: 1

At first I started reading this author's life's lessons/observations and thought they were quite funny, and much of it fascintating, although it did not go into depth at all about her parents being Communists in the 50s which I would have loved to have read tons more about; however, soon the author started to sound like a middle-aged whiner and somewhat bitter single woman who had been left by her husband in one part of the book (actually the more humorous part to me, not that it was funny that her husband was leaving her, but funny about her cyber-stalking him and his new girlfriend), but her acknowledgements include a husband so possibly this book spanned many years. She definitely has her issues, but who wouldn't coming from the home of a closet alcoholic mother.

Happy to move on to another more impressive book.
