Book Review of This Boy's Life: A Memoir

This Boy's Life: A Memoir

While you have sympathy for the main character having to put up with lousy father, mothers loser boyfriends and a whacko stepfather, it is hard to like the main character and thus I found myself reading along thinking 'well what will the troubled brat do next?' Hard to say you liked the book if that's all you got out of it. It certainly wasn't any walk down memory lane into the 1950's.
