    eBook smrl.me Á Her eBook Ù Her PDFEPUBThe author Christa Parravani gave a fabulous interview about this book on NPR Unfortunately the actual book didn't live up to her description of it Her sister Cara's sexual assault and ensuing drug addiction ending in an overdose and the author's own grief at the death of her identical twin are heart wrenching for the reader but that's it The author paints her twin and herself as self aborbed self entitled self indulgent needy incredibly dysfunctional inconsiderate volatile and immature Repeatedly the author voices the attitudes I have feelings; therefore everything I say is valid and You refuse to believe everything I think is right so I hate There is an art in memoir of making oneself likeable while discussing the gritty not pretty details of one's life and how one treated the people in one's lives badly and unfairly Neither twin is the slightest bit likeable Ti

    eBook smrl.me Á Her eBook Ù Her PDFEPUBHER is a tragic story of identical twins torn apart first by a rape and then by death This is a surprisingly intimate memoir Christa Parravani isn't keeping many secrets and the line between herself and her sister Cara is almost nonexistent She shares deeply personal information about both of them in eual measures Excerpts from Cara's private writings are scattered throughout the book including her written account of t

    eBook smrl.me Á Her eBook Ù Her PDFEPUBWhenever I read a book I look for the following things1 Did I like the characters? Could I root for them? Did I become invested in what happened to them?2 Did it inspire feelings in me? Did I get angry or sad or happy?3 Did the story make sense? 4 Did I learn anything either about myself or a subject?Her is Christa Parravani's memoir of her twin sister Cara and her own life Cara and Christa are identical twins who share that secret bond that fascinates all of us single born folks My own mother is a twin we believe identical but back then births were at home and no one checked for a one or two sacs I have often envied the

    eBook smrl.me Á Her eBook Ù Her PDFEPUBPretty disappointing considering the premise Repetitious morose and without a lot of room for empathy Or else I am just a cold heared bitch and missed the point entirely I choose to believe that as a cathartic memoir this is lacking an emotional connection with the reader

    eBook smrl.me Á Her eBook Ù Her PDFEPUBWhen I try to name my greatest fear I tend to choose something that really scares me but getting fat again and karaoke and social rejection in general are really just the scariest of the things I'm able to name If I'm being honest outliving my identical twin is far and away my greatest fear I just can't name it because the naming makes it real for an instant and I can't even handle that My brother and I fought hard to construct separate identities when we got to high school and realized that we would never have friends if everyone still viewed us as the twins so these days we live twelve hours apart working different jobs with similar motivations Still we tend to make identical decisions without consulting with each other mix up memories and have the same dreams and there is no one in the world who can ever be as important to me as my brother Christa Parravani has lived through my worst nightmare and worse and her beautiful book takes readers on an intimate journey throu

    eBook smrl.me Á Her eBook Ù Her PDFEPUBHow much did I loathe this book?A lotYes it is a really sad story Cara's fate is tragic a beautiful independent saucy young woman she survives a brutal rape that sends her spinning into Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and concomitant drug abuse Eventually she moves from prescription painkillers to heroin and ODsThe book isn't really about Cara though It's about her twin sister Christa Christa suffers from survivor's guilt Her survivor's guilt takes the form of an obsession with her dead twin but it's not a particularly interesting obsession because Christa is not a particularly interesting writer In fact she epitomizes a style I like to call I am Vagina hear me bleed I avoid these kinds of books whenever I can and I felt like I really got sold a mislabeled bill of goods here because it was touted as the second coming of Mary Karr It ain't This book was really hyped as literature Guess what though?

    eBook smrl.me Á Her eBook Ù Her PDFEPUBDNFI got to the half way mark and then just couldn't read any furtherI didn't like any of the characters in this book especially the two main characters Cara and Christa I thought them selfish inconsiderate and self centered and the I read the less I cared about what happened to themI didn't particularly enjoy the way the book was written either The story jumps backwards and forwards uite a bit and some sections are written from Cara's point of view It became too much effort to keep track of who and whenThe author wasn't very convincing Tiresome boring and at times repetitive
