  • A Must Read!

    I received this book courtesy of Netgalley and its publisher, Random House, and, boy, am I glad I received it. This was a book that I flew through. I simply couldn’t put it down. I seldom give five stars to a book. A book with five-star book is one that will “stay” with me for a long time. “Educated” met the criteria. This a true story about the life of a young woman. She grew up in the mountains in Utah. The story is remarkable. It is hard to believe someone’s parents would have the strong beliefs described, such as religion, government, and medicine. Life on the mountain was appalling. It is amazing the author was able to enter college with virtually little primary education. Her college journey is astounding and incredible she graduated from college with a Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctorate. It is an inspirational story and shows how an education can change a person. Also, the surprising impact on the family when an education is obtained. As the book stated, “the three who had left the mountain, and the four who had stayed. The three with doctorates, and the four without high school diplomas. A chasm had appeared, and was growing.”

  • Educated

    A really interesting read on the dynamics of a family, their religious beliefs and paranoia of the government and everything having to do with normal society.

  • Enlightening

    the book is the enlightenment of a person. For me, it was also a revelation of a people who exist, and walk among us. It was hard to understand what happened, how it happened and more so that there was no retribution of actions. So many people complicit to what I feel is an atrocity. It is heartbreaking and it was caused by a mental disease and ignorance? It is also inspirational of change, love and acceptance of what is, and what will never be.

    Thanks for your feedback!
