A stolen life audiobook free
Freedom: My Book of Firsts by Jaycee DugardI feel so bad giving Freedom only two stars, but I just cant help it. I read A Stolen Life a few years ago and remember being awed by Jaycee and her resilience as well as being heartbroken for everything she had been through. With Freedom, I didnt feel much, mainly because theres not much depth involved in this book like in the other one.
I get that this book is Jaycees book of firsts, but I just thought that this would be more engaging. But there wasnt much here. She writes about her animals, she writes about her first hangover, her first speeding ticket. Most of this book is filled with mundane things such as this. I guess I was expecting more about her life with her family. Not with her daughters, mind you, as I completely get her decision to keep their lives private, but I wouldve liked to hear more about her interactions with her mom and her sister.
The one thing that I just couldnt get over in Freedom was the writing. Now I get that given everything that Jaycee has been through, this book wasnt going to be fabulously written (seeing as how she didnt get a chance to finish her schooling). But there were tons of clunky sentences that I had to read over in order to fully grasp their meaning. This book should have had an editor that was willing to keep the meaning of what Jaycee was trying to say in tact while making sure that the sentences flowed more smoothly.
In the end, I wasnt that wowed by Freedom the way I was with A Stolen Life. I completely admire Jaycee and am glad that she seems to be doing so well. That knowledge is enough for me, so chances are if she writes another book, I probably wont check it out.
