This is an important book, a book many readers won't be able to put down. I was frequently torn between anger and admiration. There are descriptions of events and real life people that are disgusting and inexcusable, both the events and the people. More than once I would have loved to beat up one of Iris's boyfriends or husbands.
At the same time, this book shows the immense resilience a human being, in this case Iris, can master in the face of almost insurmountable adversity. This book gives hope to people who are struggling with bad relationships, illness and other kinds of hardship. I like the style in which the book was written. You can hear Iris talking - telling you her story. She is a remarkable woman, who despite all she went through never lost her subtle sense of humour. At times even for the people who made her life miserable, she is able to show understanding. And then of course there are the people who helped her and saved her life more than once. They are appropriately included. The only slightly unsatisfying aspect of this book is its ending. It is a somewhat abrupt ending, which would be okay for a novel, but not for a memoir, I thought.Read more ›
