Book Review: Sickened

Book: Sickened

Author: Julie Gregory

Recommend: Feel bad for the author and what she went through but not bad enough to recommend the book…

Someone recommended this book to me. The person who suggested it shall remain nameless because I really didn’t enjoy this one – at all. The story is an autobiography of the author’s childhood growing up in an abusive household whose mother had Munchhausen by proxy. While I feel for the author, the writing is just awful. It feels very disorganized, contradictory and conflicted. The narrator is untrustworthy by the time you are finished and it just seems to feel like more of the same. The ending also left so much to be desired, not because of the material but because of the stopping point. Leaving a reader with an unresolved major issue will annoy your reader. I definitely think this is an important topic that needs to be brought to light, I just don’t think that this book really accomplishes its goal.

Final Rating:

Get it used...
