    An excellent read

    I’ve just finished ‘Walking Over Eggshells’, Lucinda E Clarke’s autobiography. It’s a great book and I highly recommend it. But be warned, it’s not a light and bubbly tome. In fact, it can be a bit confronting at times. Ms Clarke’s writing style is restrained, which is well suited to the genre, and she manages to successfully navigate the sometimes treacherous path between being too flowery or self absorbed while still making for an interesting read. Something which threatens to ruin many autobiographies. The story elicits a great deal of compassion for the author, who as the synopsis tells us, had a pretty miserable childhood. On the downside, although it’s obvious what has occurred, I felt there was a bit of a hole in the narrative at around 90% which detracted somewhat from the continuity of the story. It’s a bit sombre at times, but remains above all else, very entertaining.

    Depressing but believable.

    Informative account of being raised by a mother with narcissistic personality disorder. Believable. Sadly, Lucinda lurches from one depressing situation to another, faces old age estranged from all her blood relatives. The description says she faced each situation with humour, I admire her resillience, but the story was written without humour. Written as autobiographical - I hope the author finds peace and hope.
