4.0 out of 5 stars Certainly very interesting, 2 Feb 2012
This review is from: Cast A Giant Shadow ( World's Tallest Woman Sandy Allen ) (Kindle Edition)
This is the life story of Sandy Allen telling what it is really like to be so much taller than everyone else, and as the world's official female record holder she should know. The book was informative and a little sad at times as I came to realise that being tall is certainly not always an asset - even travel, whether by car or aeroplane, can be an ordeal when you are just too big to fit.

The style of writing wasn't much to my liking. Although it said at the beginning that the whole book was written by John Kleiman, the book read as though each chapter was first written by Sandy and then everything repeated by John. The same facts were told twice but from someone else's point of view. I just found it a bit strange that John Kleiman should have chosen to write the book in two voices.

The photos at the end were a lovely addition to the text, and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a biography about something a little bit different.
