I am a big fan of books with a developed character arc, however, an unorganized plot is not for me. I would have read this one if the storyline were more developed. Thanks for the review.

The author's story is great though the organisation and the errors disappoint. Thanks for the thorough review.
Yes, I honestly think her story is worth reading. It taught me a lot about the difficulties of narcissism; however, it would have been much more appealing to be able to read it comfortably.

I can relate! When I can follow the movements of a character with understanding and ease, I think that read to be worthwhile :)

Great review! I especially loved the line about sympathy being squeezed from your being. This sounds like a painful book in many satisfying and unsatisfying ways. The disorganization, repetition, and lack of editing are going to keep me away from this one.
Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it :) Yes, it was an actual challenge reading things out of order as well as several times without giving up on the story. Albeit it being a considerably interesting read, avoiding the frustration might be for the best.

This memoir has a very good message but without going through the editing process, it will be the biggest turn off to most readers. I'm saluting you for persevering in reading this book despite the disorganisation, not well-edited, and the repetitions. Thank you for your lovely review.

At the beginning of your review of A Mother's Love, it sounded like a great book to read. However, because of the many repetitions that can be annoying, the disorganized way of putting chapters together, and the ill-edited words, I may not give this one a read. Thank you for your review.

I was hesitant to read this book, and I think I am going to pass on it. I have heard mixed reviews, but I don't see myself enjoying this book.

The title of the book is brilliant and some parts of the story but exaggeration is much of the a concern.

I would like to read this but there is really nothing that I hate more than a disorganized book. It can seriously hinder the reading experience. This sound like an important story. Well done on the review!
