Product description

Review

“If [J. D.] Vance’s memoir offered street-heroin-grade drama, [Tara] Westover’s is carfentanil, the stuff that tranquilizes elephants. The extremity of Westover’s upbringing emerges gradually through her telling, which only makes the telling more alluring and harrowing. . . . By the end, Westover has somehow managed not only to capture her unsurpassably exceptional upbringing, but to make her current situation seem not so exceptional at all, and resonant for many others.”The New York Times Book Review

“Living proof that some people are flat-out, boots-always-laced-up indomitable . . . a heartbreaking, heartwarming, best-in-years memoir about striding beyond the limitations of birth and environment into a better life.”USA Today

“Riveting . . . Westover brings readers deep into this world, a milieu usually hidden from outsiders. . . . Her story is remarkable, as each extreme anecdote described in tidy prose attests.”—The Economist

“A coming-of-age memoir reminiscent of The Glass Castle.”O: The Oprah Magazine

“Incredibly thought-provoking . . . so much more than a memoir about a woman who graduated college without a formal education. It is about a woman who must learn how to learn.”The Harvard Crimson

“Heart-wrenching . . . a beautiful testament to the power of education to open eyes and change lives.”—Amy Chua, The New York Times

“Propulsive . . . Despite the singularity of her childhood, the questions her book poses are universal: How much of ourselves should we give to those we love? And how much must we betray them to grow up?”Vogue

“A subtle, nuanced study of how dysfunction of any kind can be normalized even within the most conventional family structure, and of the damage such containment can do.”Financial Times

“Westover’s extraordinary memoir is haunting in the best way, delivering a powerful coming-of-age saga.”Paste

“Westover’s one-of-a-kind memoir is about the shaping of a mind. . . . In briskly paced prose, she evokes a childhood that completely defined her. Yet it was also, she gradually sensed, deforming her.”The Atlantic

“Whether narrating scenes of fury and violence or evoking rural landscapes or tortured self-analysis, Westover writes with uncommon intelligence and grace. . . . One of the most improbable and fascinating journeys I’ve read in recent years.”—Newsday

“This gripping coming-of-age story shows a woman’s world being opened through education.”—Refinery29

“Raw and unflinching . . . lyrical and literary.”Library Journal

“An astonishing account of deprivation, confusion, survival, and success.”Kirkus Reviews

“At its heart, her memoir is a family history: not just a tale of overcoming but an uncertain elegy to the life that she ultimately rejected. Westover manages both tenderness and a savage honesty that spares no one, not even herself.”Booklist

4.0 out of 5 stars A bold &
By Pooja on 10 July 2019
I came across this book when Bill Gates referred it in his reading list blog. After reading many good reviews about the book, I bought it and never regretted my purchase. The book will grip you from the very first chapter. Tara Westover explained her journey in such a compelling way that it becomes difficult to put the book down. She conveyed her abusive journey without sounding a victim. Her anxiety attack, loss of faith on herself for not being a good daughter and fitting in a culture where she doesn't belong makes you empathise with the author and leaves you in a grey area.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody should read it.
By Book &amp; Bhook on 24 July 2020
"It's strange how you give the people you love so much power over you."

Tara Westover is the youngest of seven siblings, born and brought up in a Mormon family. They believe in dressing modestly (nothing above the ankle), they follow the Sabbath strictly (no grocery shopping on a Sunday), wearing make-up and body fit clothes is vulgar, no need to register yourself to the government (no birth certificate, no schooling),etc. The first time she sets foot in a school is at the age of 17. She has the beliefs which her father has fed her since childhood. Her world revolves around the farm she has grown up at, overlooking the beautiful Buck's Peak mountain in Idaho. She loves her family but when she slowly starts to explore what the world is all about she faces a conflict which leads her to challenge everything she has known in her life.

From a young age Tara has seen her brothers burn, fall from a height, she herself had an accident but her family never considered visiting a doctor because they don't believe in the medical establishment. Tara's parents are ignorant towards their children especially her father, and her mother fully supports her father in everything leaving no room for Tara to find a support system in either of them.
Her parents take the word of God quite literally and to some extent mould it according to their mindset.

Sexism plays a huge factor in Tara's life. When she is bullied by her elder brother, Shawn, because he thinks she is acting as a whore by laughing too loudly or wearing too much makeup & should be condemned for that, she accepts it. Only when she has grown up and is studying at Cambridge, her elder sister confronts her that the same had happened with her and they talk to their parents but her parents refuse to accept that such a thing could have happened and if it did, Shawn, must have been right in doing so.

Tara was brainwashed from an early age, to read her account of finding her real self was shocking, and heartbreaking. Since her parents are uneducated they never realised there might be a history of mental illness in the family. Out of the seven siblings, three of them manage to get a proper education themself but they all are still dominated by their family.

This book is not just a book, it is a reality check that physical abuse, mental abuse, manipulation, suffocating a person's voice, sexism, presence of no parental figure, all of it happens to many children out there. This book makes you question, how much are you willing to give up for the one's you love?

Read this book to know the importance of an education and the power of having a voice and being able to use it. Read this book to know how toxic nature is internalised in families and the damage it can lead to. Read this book to understand how it is up to us to make the world we want to live in.

My Verdict: 5/5
