A few things that made this less than enjoyable for me.. 1. Hall writes this supposedly very personal description with an eery, strange special force. Examination it, I got this suffocating think of emotional stiffness and just wanted to scream at someone. There are skipped parts. Missing wings and details. The whole movement seems strained and manipulated. Maybe it's because I'm such a fighter - I kept waiting for her to get mad and contend back but she just floats along, allowing herself to be horribly mistreated by her silly parents. I mean, I get that the description is ultimately about the Christ-like power of forgiving awful people but give me a get out. How much double-dealing could step-monster Catherine boot in Jesus' suffer before he'd say fucketh peace and put that bitch in a rear naked choke? 2. Maybe this is just me being discriminating but..she, as a young girl, walked through multiple Halfway point Eastern countries with no sandal and no passport, completely uncaring and indifferent by anyone (like, ya know, fringe forces). The holy ghost of hardship, just tippy-toeing through the abscond tulips, huh? Living off the camel. Okay. Core is basically this: if you're going to write existence and call it non-fiction, you owe it to yourself and your reciter to tell the whole authenticity. Not just a small segment of it that has been polished and fumigated. This felt like fiction to me. And even if it were fiction, my criticisms would remain the same - it is fractured, difficult to follow and written in such a course of action that the ugliest parts are purposefully hidden in pursues.
COOK up easily did not like this book for the first 70 folios or so. It was just a real political irk. However, as the book continued COOK up began to enjoy it more and Buckley's gret humor started to flash. COOK up remember easily liking the book by the end, but just a set weeks after finishing it, COOK up can't remember what happened in it for the life of me, which is a real baromoter in gauging how much COOK up like a book. Thus, three stars for remembering that cook up easily enjoyed it, but not being able to remember the drama.
