Boring No climax or excitement.The storyline never gets exciting, and the ending just left you almost thinking they forgot the last chapters to finish the sptry
Heartbreaking but too scattered for me.
had promise, with a few genuinely good moments, but ultimately seemed self serving and empty
Really a great little snippet of a memoir Some of it is disjointed, but it reads like a stream of consciousness, which I think is suitable for this situation If I were in the author s shoes, I too would be reflecting back on my relationship with my brother while looking for him and gaining to understand why he left We never truly find out why Jarrett left I, like other readers, want to know and seek to understand his motivation But I don t think the author knowsd that s okay What she discovers [...]
The plot is weak and the words all feel repetitive The story had no real climax or interesting builds in the writing It was like being stuck in a room with that annoying person at a party droning on about a story you don t care about The parts of the story that could have been interesting were never even explored.
Broke My HeartThis story was excellent and heartbreaking at the same time, because I, too, thought my brother was my best friend, then I lost him, but not because he died In a way, that might have been easier He just became someone I didn t know and who didn t want to know me.
A feeling from every wordAnyone with a sibling, anyone whose been lost, anyone who has dreamt of running away, or has had the fear of losing it all, been afraid to live solely for the approval of and conversely, the disapproval of others, will feel this story Schaefer s writing is just as effortless and real as it gets.
PointlessIf you enjoy the inconsequential incoherent ramblings of a woman about whom you not possibly care less then this book is for you Otherwise it is a total waste of time and money.
Intriguing and sad.
Read it on a plane Sort of interesting but her writing style is a bit disjointed and the authors draws few conclusions at the end.
