3.0 out of 5 stars Just a Mo, still waiting!, 14 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Just a Mo: My Story (Hardcover)
I have been deeply disappointed in this book. I found it has dragged on, I have been waiting for the crunch moment but there isn't one. Laila talks about her life - seems quite an idyllic childhood until her dad disappears. Nothing to write home about until then, one must assume maybe not so idyllic considering the way her dad disappeared and then crawls back into their lives later, how forgiving was her mum, Jackie and Laila. I have the feeling Laila has chosen to leave chunks out.
Furthermore, I found the constant drone about living here, there but always returning home to mum quite droll.
Then we have 17yrs of the hateful ' George' who was cruel to Gerry and we later find out Tracey and George never got along although Laila states in an earlier chapter that although George was nasty to her little boy ' Gerry' - George was easier on Tracey. I found it all drawn out, I really had to persevere reading this book, I kept going as I thought I was coming to the interesting part.
I firmly believe this is written through rose tinted glasses and the truth is probably buried.
I feel so sorry for Laila's son Gerry, it would appear the cruelty George metted out has greatly affected him or are there other issues which Laila cannot bear to address.
I am astounded by the other reviews as I feel readers must be so gullible to rate it so highly.
