it was ok
bookshelves: nonfiction

Disappointing. I picked this up hoping for examples of real sister relationships, anecdotes, snippets from interviews, etc. According to the introduction, the author did interview a lot of siblings, but rather than use these interviews to illustrate her theories, she keeps the details to herself and merely reiterates her theories, repeatedly. Also, the author seems always to be arguing with some invisible 'other', as if she is defending a deprecated viewpoint - but since I went into this w/o a viewpoint, looking for information and insight, felt a bit like I was being pummeled unfairly.
