Eric Mikols I'm glad it's not just me.

Susan We're a pretty small club though, aren't we?! I gave it two stars for exactly the same reason you did, Megan.

It was a class plug for the new website as well!!

Gabrielle I am reading it for my book club and HATING it! Could it get anymore boring. I may not finish it and just move on to better things in life!

Aylish I'm joining the two star club. I had such a hard time with this because the privilege just dripped off the pages. I'm not saying he should apologize for his life, mine has been quite charmed as well, but there was so little sense of reality and humility. Eh, I'll just pay for someone to go to Europe. Eh, if you don't like living abroad, quit your job and move home. Yes, move to Switzerland and fly home whenever you want and I'll fly there, too. I went cheerfully off to boarding school. Ugh! I so wanted to like this book but no dice. My only positive takeaway is that books are consoling and provide a common thread; they give you what you need when you need it. Unfortunately, this book gave me nothing.

Susan Who cares about the privilege? You are narrowing your options for book loving with this kind of criticism. Who writes books these days? Priviliged folks, that is who! At least according to some definition which I have not seen the parameters of here.

Susan You are privileged to be part of the Goodreads market. In case you haven't noticed it is made up of mostly white middle class individuals.

Alison Conners I found this to be a beautifully written memoir and have read it twice.
