So far, it's ok. I'm disappointed as I loved Juno and expected more from this. Totally understand that it's a memoir but I am finding it to be too cheeky and not as sarcastic and witty as I had hoped.

Ok, it definitely gets better mid way.

Written flawlessly; Walls' tells her story without the anger I would have graciously afforded her given what she experienced. I admire her ability to detail the issues of poverty, addiction, neglect/abuse and guilt while maintaining a level of love and respect for her parents.

I have read a few of Shreve's, this was decent. I didn't love it, didn't hate it. Liked it enough to stay with it through the end.

Love Krakauer's style - straight writing based on research. Provided a great look in the history of the religion and community.
