“This book was beyond riveting. Tara Westover grew up in a family most of us could not fathom, one in which her family who keeps their children out of school, sees modern medicine as evil, and didn’t even get her a birth certificate until about age 9. The backdrop of Buck’s Peak in rural Idaho serves to ground this family but separates Tara both physically and educationally from the modern world until against all odds, she grows wings, a painful process that pits her between the educated world and the one her bipolar father and submissive, herbalist mother have so carefully constructed for her. Tara’s strength and revealed weaknesses make you root for her. And her beautiful articulate writing and development of family members leaves you heartbroken, retrospective, and involved. She lets us into her world, her struggles, and her eventual education that serves to liberate her. I couldn’t put this book down and didn’t want to finish it so awed am I by Tara’s true life story.“

“Didn’t care for it, couldn’t feel any interest in any of the characters“

“As someone who barely reads (I know it’s not good), this book took my breath away. Tara Westover’s story is incredibly unique, with twists and turns every page. I could hardly believe I was reading a factual memoir. If I could give this book 100 stars I would!! Definitely a must read.“

“This is a page turner because it’s so unbelievable. So unbelievable, in fact, that even after completion of the last chapter, I have to remind myself that it is nonfiction. Only 4 stars because, at times, the writer left me wondering what had happened to certain family member as she had not mentioned them for a long while. I.e., Richard. By chapter 16 I was asking myself, Where was HE when all this craziness was happening?“

“I loved this book but began to have nagging doubts about it later. Perhaps truth mixed with fiction to keep it likely. Somehow the antagonists seem to rise from the dead miraculously. No real names and her interview on the news hour made her look like she was hiding something.“

“Thought provoking, heart wrenching, raw honesty that pushes the reader to feel the heavy weight of violence and family dysfunction- a testament to the power and strength of the human spirit!“

“This book is extremely powerful and heartbreakingly beautiful. The raw emotion and turmoil that Tara faced through her life is more than many people could ever begin to handle. Not only did she handle it, she came out of it stronger than ever. Her perseverance is something to look up to. You won’t regret reading this.“
