it was ok

The first 80 pages were torture for me. I hate these kind of "sob sister" stories but I'm reading it for book club so I read on b/c the writing is good...I read on.

The last 1/3rd of this book was so much better than the first 2/3rds but it was definitely worth the trip. I still don't believe much of this book but I will blame me for being a synical person and not the author. There are a few things in my life I would not put in a book b/c no one would believe them so maybe all of this story is true.

Most importantly, the writing is good, that's what matters and the insightfulness of the last few pages were a delight to read.
