    1. Poorly constructed and in need of good edit. There is a story to tell, but this account is full of generalisations and contradictions. A disappointing book that never explores any aspect of life in any depth or with any insight. I have no idea why Elizabeth embarks on such disastrous relationships, and her friendships seem shallow.
