    Story
    (13)

    Christine Benvenuto had been married for more than twenty years - with three young children - when her husband turned to her one night in bed and said, "I'm thinking constantly about my gender." Unhappy in his body, he wanted to become a woman. Part memoir, part voyeur's look into a marriage, Sex Changes is a journey through the end of a marriage and out the other side.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book was such a huge disappointment. The author is chained to a victim status by her own mind. Her ex-husband's choices may have been difficult for her to accept and adjust to but she has no dignity in her unsuccessful efforts to move on. She blames him/her for her misery when it is so clear she is just a miserable and needy person, taking it out on him/her and their children in the cruelest ways. Her self involvement was so sickening and hurtful that I couldn't finish the book. I was looking forward to hearing this story from the ex-wife's point of view but this was just a sad woman with no clarity or heart.


    What could Christine Benvenuto have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    take responsibility for herself.


    What three words best describe Renée Raudman’s performance?

    fine, easy to listen to.


    What character would you cut from Sex Changes?

    the wife!
