As a previous reviewer mentioned, this book is very sketchy indeed. It's not fleshed out in the slightest, and though I suppose this would be difficult as it is a non-fiction, I felt like there was really no purpose in reading this story in the slightest. I bought it for a review on the back that claimed "First-class escapism", and while I enjoyed the possibilities to essentially "escape", I really began to dislike the author. She'll spend one chapter entirely devoted to her mother and father, and then devote half a sentence to declare she had a child "I gave birth to la nina Iseult", and then spend the rest of the ensuing paragraph to talk about someone else entirely. I'm a skimmer by habit, and I had reached the end of the book when Isuelt reappeared, and I had to go way way back to figure out who the heck she was.
This was, however, a well written story, and somehow succeeded in sucking me in all the way to the end. As the previous reviewer mentioned, I'm just not interested in reading about her life.
