    What a book

    Having grown up in a large (albeit Catholic) I can relate to how families have different versions of the same story but that's all.. My father and mother, unlike the author's had a firm belief in the power of education and held to the view that their daughters would have the same access to it as their sons. Dr. Westover had me enthralled in this autobiography from the beginning. Her realization that history can be skewered by the historian was an eye opener for her. Enjoyed the story.

    Reader

    The memoir was an education for me as I have children in the same age range as the author is. To think that children in a modern country would be raised in the paranoia displayed in the household awakened to me a world I had not imagined. The style was interesting although the chronology took a little a time to adjust to. I liked the suspense at the end of each chapter; much of the book read like a mystery nove.

    Excellent

    I found this book to be spell binding. It is so hard to believe that people in this day and age actually lived an thought as the parents did. It was an eye opener to me and I like the way that Tara has told her story.
