I don’t feel entirely comfortable reviewing the technical aspects of memoirs. It’s not my place to comment on how someone else expressed their life experience. Here’s what I will say:
I cannot begin to imagine the level of suffering that she endured, and I wish that no one ever had to endure that. But she did, and she’s incredible.
I listened to the audiobook for this memoir because it was read by the author, which I always like. The words flow so much more naturally when they’re read by the person who crafted them. I have never been as affected by an audiobook, and by a listening experience as I was with this. I hope everyone gets the chance to listen or read this book. I have a lot to keep learning, work to do on integrating more varied voices into my reading lists, and working on what I can do to support those around me.
