My first memoir about a woman that grew up with hoarders as parents
on 3 June 2014
I liked this; i have read a lot of memoirs and autobiographies but never on this subject; hoarding, which made it interesting reading. The author gives an honest account of her life with hoarding parents and describes the squalor she grew up in so well you start to scratch at yourself when she talks of the fleas and rats that lived at home with her.This is one tough lady; even after all she's had to live through, and still as a grown woman, is the one looking after her parents she has a great sense of humour which helps a lot in keeping the book from becoming a tear jerker.
It's not the best book I've ever read which is why I've given it three stars,but i would recommend it as an easy to read, sometimes funny, sometimes sad true story.
