There are some brief examples of other people, including famous people such as Charlotte Bronte and someone called Elizabeth Smart (who??). The evidence she marshals for her argument, for that is all this book is, and not a particularly good and well rounded one at that, is taken from letters and biographies of these people. Not exactly up to date and pertinent to today's world. Where is the research, the attempt to listen to and understand the experiences of others?
Her writing and thinking seems pretty dated, she refers on many occasions to men who are "rakes" or "cads" or "rotters" - who talks like that?? This book was written in 1991, not 1891!
She makes some pretty large claims with no research to back it up, for example in one section the book claims that all prostitutes have a background of abuse as children, without exception.Read more ›
This is all well and good, and maybe not all stalkers and obsessive lovers are hideous certifiable nutcases who rake through other people's dustbins. But to say that they are such fabulous shining examples of humanity is a generalisation that is unhelpful at best, and dangerous at worst.
However, the case studies are interesting and well researched. And using her own story to pull the book together works very well, as well as providing hope for people like myself, who felt that there couldn't be life after obsessive love.
