How did you like this book??? I have not read any of her books but have heard that she is a very good author. Would you recommend this one for someone who has not read any of her books yet???

Well this was my first one read by her also. I have to say I tried listening to it once before and I didn't like it. THis time I listened to it and it was better. She has humble and tragic beginnings so it is hard to discredit that. I did find it hard to listen to her own voice reading it. At times it was okay like when she would talk about her and her brother Bailey, but as she grew up it was more serious. I really think it would have been better to have someone else read it. (mainly because there are times where she is just hard to understand)
Overall it was a good memoir of her early years. I would start there unless you really like to read poetry then some of her others might trip your trigger more. :)
