I know I still blame it on my doubting Thomas gene I do also have a belief in both holistic and regular medicine being a partnership in the healing processNext up for me was Tara's ability to obtain somehow the finances to attend college and then to travel overseas to England and back Yes I do know that she was awarded scholarships but what about the incidentals travel food not provided in school Did she live like a hermit and never leave the confines of the school she was attending? From her writing we know that is not trueLastly if indeed these things were happening where were the people who should have noticed the abuse? Where were the friends the church goers the people who did business with the father? Would they have not noticed untoward things happening to the Westover children Would not at least one of them have come forward? Why are some of them coming forward now to defend this family?So sorry to say I am going against the grain of many of my fellow much respected readers and reviewers and saying that I just could not buy into what was being set forward in this book I am not an advocate for her parents nor do I think that things never did happen Perhaps to me this book just has not explained the circumstances well enough for the doubting Thomas in me to believe Thankful to my Traveling Sisters who read this book along with me We all seemed to share the same ideas on this one and I am glad as always to have my thoughts and feeling able to be expressed to such a wonderful group of avid readers Also thank you to netgalley the author and the publisher for providing me with an ARC of this book

text Ê Ô Tara Westover

? Τάρα έχει ένα ταλέντο το τραγούδι αλλά και μια εμμονή τη γνώση Μπαίνει για πρώτη φορά σε σχολική τάξη στα δεκαεφτά της χρόνια δεν γνωρίζει ότι έγιναν δύο παγκόσμιοι πόλεμοι ούτε όμως και την ακριβή ημερομηνία της γέννησής της Σύντομα ανακαλύπτει πως η μόρφωση είναι ο μόνος τρόπος για να ξεφύγει από το σπίτι της Ξεκινάει από το μηδέν συγκεντρώνει τις απαραίτητες δυνάμεις και προετοιμάζεται για τ It's strange how you give the people you love so much power over youI am in the minority on this one but this did not blow me away I wanted to read this after seeing so many high ratings I was expecting to love this book but ended up feeling meh about it I actually wanted to hurry the book up in parts and other times found it to be a little repetitive There were other times I wanted her to go into detail or explain things One thing I had an issue with is that her family is described as survivalists who educated their children at home many of which do not even have a birth certificate but then they had many modern conveniences Her father has a junkyard and a huge distrust of the government Her Mother becomes a midwife at her husband's urging and makes tinctures and uses herbs to cure those in her family and in their community I do realize that the family acuired the telephone due to her Mother's job as a mid wife but then I wondered how they paid for everythingTara grows up free or wild She didn’t bathe that often didn’t wash her hands after using the restroom and is unaware of world history and is uite comfortable living around bad odors and smells She is abused by an older brother and no one seems to notice intervene or even care They seem to be a reckless group example multiple car accidents etc I had a hard time believing some of the information presented Case in point the first car accident in the book Tara's father offered to pay for the damaged tractor Where did they get the money? Just how much does farm euipment cost? It's not cheap I know that Even if the farm euipment purchased is used it still must be pricey Plus the damage to their car would mean they would need to purchase another Then the family has another car accident More money lots of injuries possible need for another vehicle etc I am not saying that none of this happened but I had a lot of uestions about how things were paid forPlus this family seemed to be very accident prone falling from surfaces fires head injuries Was this because they were raised without any rules and became reckless or did bad things just happen to them?Tara does want a better life for herself She does educate herself at home so she can pass the test to get into College College isn't cheap nor are book nor is housing or food Again I wondered how she paid for all of this Plus once she got to college she didn't seem to mind that her roommates were upset with the smell in their home Dirty dishes not bathing not having clean clothes I get if this is the norm in the home she grew up in but when faced with other's displeasure I would think a smart girl like her would have taken the hint that being clean and living in a clean environment is the norm not how she was raised Plus at home a young man even pointed out to her that her home smelled as did sheThere was a part of this book that I did enjoy Tara's thirst for knowledge and teaching herself and gaining entrance to college without a formal education I appreciated her struggles and having to learn how to learn She went on to achieve a lot in her life and it is impressive and commendable Tara definitely was an under dog and I did root for her She definitely changed her life and sought for better for herself Even without a lot of support from her family she found strength and kept going This is what shined for me in this book with otherwise left me with uestions Who doesn't want to root for her? I did Having said that there were just too many uestions raised why reading this I don't care if someone is a survivalist I would think one would still want their children to be safe and free of harm The turning the blind eye to abuse was despicable The family also had a lot of modern conveniences which did not gel with my idea of what a survivalist family would own or not own But I am no expert on survivalist families Her father clearly had some mental health issues and they contributed to his beliefs and possibly to their way of life Yes she suffered abuse Yes she grew up in a home with an untreated mentally ill parent yes it is all very sad but it was still not enough to make me enjoy the book What worked for me in this book was Tara's drive for a better life How with very little support from her family she went out on her own and obtained an education I appreciated her drive and determination Her book is well written and I realize this is her account of how she remembers things from her perspective I just was left with uestions hence the 3 star ratingAgain in the minority with this one Most love this book It just wasn't for meI received a copy of this book from Random House Publishing group and NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewSee of my reviews at wwwopenbookpostcom

book Educated

Educatedις εισαγωγικές εξετάσεις στο πανεπιστήμιο διασχίζει ωκεανούς και ηπείρους και αποφοιτά από το Κέμπριτζ Αν και γι’ αυτό θα πρέπει να σπάσει τους δεσμούς που τη συνδέουν με την οικογένειά τηςΗ Γουέστοβερ δημιούργησε μια παγκόσμια και εμπνευσμένη ιστορία –τη δική της ιστορία– για τη μόρφωση και τη δύναμή της να δίνει νέα ματιά και προοπτικές στη ζωή μας γεμίζοντάς μας με θέληση για διαρκή εξέλιξ? 5 brilliant stars to Educated 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 I grew up in a home of readers with a teacher mom and a dad who uestioned my effort when I made an A minus on my report card When I began reading Educated I was floored that Tara and her siblings were not in school and they were not homeschooled either How could this happen in modern times with compulsory schooling put in place long ago? Tara made it clear from the start that her family’s Mormon faith did not cause her father’s substantial paranoia; however he used his faith to feed it This family not only did not have insurance they did not believe in accessing traditional medical care Horrific accidents and illnesses abounded due to the father’s and one sibling’s risk taking and no one went to the doctor While the family was clearly having difficulty grappling with many things I was struck by the love and devotion between them even with the strained family dynamics It was both fascinating and heartbreaking to watch those dynamics shift even as Tara’s aspirations developed and were achieved Strength Grit Perseverance Tara’s tenacity resulted in her leaving the farm at Buck’s Peak and enrolling in college after never attending a day of school Her words were upfront bold but never complaining or looking for pity Overall I found Educated to be one of the most engaging powerful and inspiring memoirs I have read Thank you to Tara Westover Random House and Netgalley for this reading experience I will treasure Educated is now available
