I cannot relate to Julie. At all. Even when I try, I cannot. I am the kind of person who believes that we all have our own hell to face. We deal with the pain and suffering in our own ways. But, I cannot find myself to pity Julie at all, even when I tried even when I want to. It was a sad story, a recollection of a broken childhood past that could have easily made others cry or wish that they could have been there to save her somehow. Not I.Though it was beautifully written, it felt as if it was [...]
Every female wants to be Daddy's little girl. This book deserves a 5 star rating because it eloquently captures a little girl's undying love for her father. This book will definitely bring you to tears, but in the end it'll be worth it.
It was such a horrible book. I had a really hard time sticking to it but I had to finish it just because I bought it. It had no plot and the stupidest ending ever
Not my cup of tea. It's the writer's summary of her once difficult life so it was a mere narration of what happened.
Started reading this and can just tell from the writing style and the way the book is written that it was not for me. I don't waste time with books that do not capture me anymore and this is one for the not to be finished pile.
Title: My Father's KeeperSeries: -Author: Julie Gregory Genre: True StoryRating: 3 stars Based on a true story, we are given the chance to see inside the lives of others, and for a little while experience what Julie Gregory experienced. This story details the reality of living with a Schizophrenic father. Not a bad read. If you have any interest in mental illness and the effects it has on people's lives this is one you should read.
A book for books-sake. An easy-read about an unfortunate life. I have read more harrowing life-stories, this didn't quite touch my heart. There was a lot of repetition and also a lack of consistency (Carol or Carole?).
I only read this book Because the first one was such an eye opener. I am so disappointed by this book. There was no order. It was always changing. I was amazed at how there wasn't a link between the two books. It was just casually mentioned towards the end. it was like it had never happened
Done. . so silly
couldnt finish this - it bored me
This book was a lot more difficult to get into than the author's first book - "Sickened", however it was a testament to the author that she survived the trauma with strength and courage.
real hard going book. struggled to keep on reading it
