This isn't David Sedaris' best, but then again, it would be hard to top the others. Then again (again), maybe it's me. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for quirky. It's worth the time and money though.
I really enjoyed this book. She was a real person, very strong really who was surprisingly unhappy. Not miserable, just unhappy. She got totally ripped off but what was dealt to her and one can only wonder what might have happened had her husband been a real husband.
I am really glad that I bought this book before reading the reviews -- because if I had not, I may not have. So it's important to remember that a review is always going to be subjective.
That said, I loved it and found it really, really interesting. And I happen to really like Alison Weir's voice and accent, which helped.
It's worth it to find out.
I really enjoyed this book. Like so many others, I probably would not have found it had the church not been in the news. And as I said in another review, the Bible teaches us that polygamy never ends well -- for anyone.
I admire Carolyn. She seems like the kind of person who would be a good friend to have. I wish her all the best.
I've always liked Rick Bragg's work and this one doesn't disappoint. So he was a little late in growing up -- at least he's one of the few who do! Loved it (though Ava's Man will ALWAYS be my favorite).
Can't wait for another one.
Fascinating book, wonderfully read.
