This was a good book, but it jumped around a bit from one point of the woman's life to another. I had to rewind a few times to get to where I could understand what part of the woman's life I was in. A bit confusing.
I read the reviews and downloaded this book thinking I would truly enjoy it. For me it was the most ridiculous story line I ever read. I listened to the whole thing because it was interesting that an author could make such a attempt at keeping things straight and make it seem possible. Not a winner for me...
One of the most books written with courage and honesty. It touches anyone with an eating disorder and during the listen, I could feel my heart pound with the words of Portia's illness and how much of her everyday life it took from her. My mind could not wrap around the pain and energy it took to keep her 'eating' under control. I wish this woman all the best on her journey to recovery. A+
This book was great start to finish, it was a nail biting roller coaster of a story...I could not stop listening and would take my player everywhere with me so I can keep listening. Gives a good look at our judicial system, and moreover the politics involved when egos get in the way of the truth. A+
I am sad to say that though this book was good, it was just another man murdering his wife rather than get a divorce. It held my interest, but I cannot say I was at the edge of my seat. Good book when walking my dog.
This story was so unbelieveable that I could not stop listening to it. Just when you thought you heard everything evil, this takes the cake! Not for the weak stomach.
Extremely brave and so well written. Sebold is amazing.
I grew up with Three Faces of Eve and as a child I never really understood what multiple personality disorder meant. This book was one I could not stop listening to. The most amazing patient-doctor journey that takes this woman to the light at the end of the tunnel. The reader was so good that I actually felt I knew each personality and as Karen became more 'whole' I cried when each of the alters had to be integrated into this woman in order for her to become who she was meant to be. Amazing simply amazing a must listen. A++
Amazing listen. The reader, wonderful. Sad story but in fact touches all of us in some way. Trying to understand what makes us tick, maybe not in the way of the story but in what makes us who we really are. Excellent book.
Excellent to know this screwball's background. I enjoyed every minute of it.
