4.0 out of 5 stars An honest but difficult read, 6 July 2013
This review is from: West: A Journey Through the Landscapes of Loss (Paperback)
I have admired Jim Perrin's writing for a long time and parts of the this memoir are exceptional. The detail he provides to describe the relationships central to the book feel too intrusive for me - some things may have been better left unsaid but that's the author's decision. Overall, a very honest, fine book.

We note this reviewer's praise of Jim Perrin for having written "Overall, a very fine, honest book." To his credit he mentions his misgivings as to the suitability of some of the content, which well he might if he knew the truth. Perhaps then he would reconsider his opinion and, possibly, delete his review. Several others have done so.

If Mr. Kennedy were to read the facts about Jac - she being the central figure of the narrative (Jim Perrin himself, of course, excepted....) which her sisters have revealed on their eponymously titled blog, he might have second thoughts about allying himself with Mr. Perrin, and revise his opinion about that author's "honesty".
