    FREE READER ´ DOC Educated é CONNECFLOOR Educated2 stars and I know I am an outlierI have been born with a gene called the doubting Thomas gene It has made me very leery of trusting and believing a lot of things and unfortunately this gene kicked in big time in this story billed as a memoirWhile I do believe that the things described by Tara Westover might have happened I also have to think that this was a book of childhood memories Sometimes as children we distort the truth and sometimes grown to adulthood we only remember fragments of what happened and when confronted by others realize our memory was somewhat faultyThere are actually uite a few things I just could not wrap my hands around in this story For one being a former teacher and having had the pleasure of teaching many gifted and brilliant students I just could not see what with the uantum

    FREE READER ´ DOC Educated é CONNECFLOOR EducatedWestover is clearly a decent writer but I felt underwhelmed by this book Some things didn't seem to add up Such as how an uneducated mountain wildgirl clicked her heels together magicked up thousands of dollars yeah yeah scholarships don't cover everything you know and went on to some of the world's most prestigious higher education centres Intelligence is not the main thing reuired to attend Harvard or Cambridge; being able to pass exams and perform the system'

    FREE READER ´ DOC Educated é CONNECFLOOR EducatedIt'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

    FREE READER ´ DOC Educated é CONNECFLOOR EducatedI had a really tough time reading this bookThe physical and emotional abuse made me want to put it down and forget about it The manipulation the abuse she went through left me speechless While not uniue family issues are still so taboo Brainwashing your own self into thinking it's your fault that it wasn't that bad or that you imagined it will hit way too close for comfort for a lot of peopleThe author's writing was beautiful and her courage to get an education and stand up to her family was inspiringDo recommend if you can stomach it

    FREE READER ´ DOC Educated é CONNECFLOOR Educated5 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 do
