    In this captivating memoir, Deborah Feldman takes listeners on an eye-opening journey into Orthodox Jewish culture. Raised in the suffocating world of Brooklyn’s Satmar Hasidim, Feldman was told what to read and who she was allowed to talk to. Married off at 17, she suffered from anxiety and was shamed by an inability to please her older husband. But after giving birth to a son at age 19, Feldman realized it was time to tear up her roots and make her own path in life.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Greater detail, more insight. This author is too young to write a memoir that reflects a true life experience gained from another twenty years of her life.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Deborah Feldman again?

    probably not.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I found the reader's voice irritating, although its youth was authentic for the story.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Few.


    Any additional comments?

    The writing was rudimentary and a bore to listen to. Of all the outstanding writers out there who have received rejection upon rejection, how did this one get published?
