This is a very sad, sad story It s told in the present tense which was a little odd for me in the beginning although I got used to it as it went on That s not something that usually bothers me at all but for some reason it did with this book It s also a shorter book all of 212 pages yet it took me awhile to get through it It seemed like the first three quarters of the book were really drawn out and then the last quarter was where it started moving That isn t to say the first parts were ba This is a very sad, sad story It s told in the present tense which was a little odd for me in the beginning although I got used to it as it went on That s not something that usually bothers me at all but for some reason it did with this book It s also a shorter book all of 212 pages yet it took me awhile to get through it It seemed like the first three quarters of the book were really drawn out and then the last quarter was where it started moving That isn t to say the first parts were bad because they weren t they give the reader a very detailed glimpse into what Shellduck s childhood was like I liked how she didn t spell everything out and left things up to the reader to kind of assume She told enough for you to make general assumtions and then hit back on them later Some things she said just hit me as odd also Her mother did a few things that to me are appalling and one HUGE thing that is damn near unforgivable in my eyes yet she never once mentioned how her mother was wrong for this Yet she mentioned her father s misgivings That struck me as odd But then, I only know what I read in this book about the story so I can t really say too much.It s a decent read for memoir lovers definitely and it d be even better if the reader doesn t find it as slow as I did I enjoy this type of story and did enjoy this However it was very short and all seemed a little rushed somehow Not the best I ve read if I m honest. Enjoyed this book Any recommendations to similar books are greatly received I love non fiction. part of deciding how good a book is for me is if it held my attention at first i was very intriged i must say as the storyline went on it became bitboring and confusing to figure out what was actually going on then it seemes to jump ahead in time very drastically and i felt like it ended with out a real conclusion now dont get me wrong it did have an ending but i was left feeling unsatisfied and probably would not have been so eager to finish this book if it had been any longer it alm part of deciding how good a book is for me is if it held my attention at first i was very intriged i must say as the storyline went on it became bitboring and confusing to figure out what was actually going on then it seemes to jump ahead in time very drastically and i felt like it ended with out a real conclusion now dont get me wrong it did have an ending but i was left feeling unsatisfied and probably would not have been so eager to finish this book if it had been any longer it almost felt like the author was geting tired of writing as i was getting tired of reading I ve read similar books to these before which were better, wentin depth and wereemotional I still enjoyed this short story of Kathy s life with her sisters and the conclusion about her father, but didn t finish it feeling anything in particular, whereas other books of this genre can stay with you for days, weeks and years after.
