I love the end, this would be the perfect movie!
This is one of my favorite books! I love the character in it! She did not make herself out to be the victim. Jeanette was the 2nd to oldest child and her parents neglected the children. Most of the time the kids were on their own trying to find food to eat! The dad was a drunk and the mom was too selfish. My favorite part was when she made home made braces because her teeth were too bad.The parents would do things that made your jaw drop. One time they were moving across country and rented a u-haul. All three kids sat in the u-haul and they had to hold their 2 month old baby sister. It was pitch black for about 8 hrs for the kids..they didn't even get to stop for a potty break. But in the end the children moved to New York as soon as they were 18 and led successful lives while their parents ended up homeless. That was the life they chose to live.
Now I understand why the book was so popular! The author has a way of getting in your head. The girl goes through ups & downs which makes you realize if you were to write a book about yourself you would be suprirse at how many ups and downs you had. She's raped at 13, gains 275lbs. steals letters from her college roomate, has sex with a girl, tries to commit suicide, goes to a half way house, has abortion, gets married, gets a divorce, there is just so much to list but her life continues to move on. It is not a happy ending which keeps it realistic but it is a story of when she was about 4 years old until she is about 40 yrs old. This is a good read, I would recommend it to anyone who is mentally stable. If you are not then this book will probably make you week.
Suprisingly this is my favorite book so far. I had to read it for my book club otherwise I would have never picked this one up. It was mind boggling to read the things he got away with. He was a very lucky man! Don't worry, it's not graffic, anyone can read it. Even though it was so good it was not a fast read. after every couple of pages I had to put the book down to absorb all the information. It is packed full of interesting information, I was writing notes throughout the whole book because I didn't want to forget any of it. Some of the reasons he was able to talk to so many women and get him in his car is that he would walk around with crutches so they would help him out. Also he was a very handsome man. Beware of men with crutches! All I can say is read it! Then come back and post your opinion.
I was taken back by this girls bravery! I love this book, when I think back to the things she has been through it chokes me up! Married when she was 14, she had 4 miscarriages by the time she was 15, one of them took place in a gas station! Polygamist don't go to hospitals, they try to avoid dr's, medications etc at all costs. Warren Jeffs is a monster, he led everyone to believe he was a profit. When they finally caught him he was in a Cadillac Escallade. They found 27 stacks of $100. bills..the total about of money in cash was $54,000! They also found 15 cell phones, walkie talkies, gps units, police scanner, knives, wigs. They also found a bag of tithing letters that were opened just enough for him to get the money! He never read there prayers, he didn't care. Then while he was in prison his brother Nephi comes to visit him and Warren tells him "I am not the Prophet" And he actually confesses his wrong doings! Read the book! This is Zuko before his morning c
Jake is not as passionate as Edward so the book was not as exciting but it is still a good book. I just hate how in the beginning of the book Edward wants to buy her a nice car and she doesn't want to take it! I would love to have a new car. I picture her truck to be really cold inside, for some reason I don't think the heater works?. But I love how Edward takes her to prom and it's super hot that she has two guys wanting her. I would pick Edward all the way!
