I'm not really one to enjoy biographies, but after a good experience with the similar book, The Woman Warrior I decided to give this a try, since I had to read a nonfiction book anyway. Meh. It was okay. Not really an engaging or exciting story and the writing style is simple and plain, which is fine, but not really my type. It feels like a really long book, which is odd because it's tiny. The story is about the author, Adeline Yen Mah, growing up with your typical wicked stepmother, who blames Adeline for her mother's death. Adeline finds escape from her home life in her writing, which, of course, is what brought her to write this book. It's not a bad story, but it feels like I've read it before. I'd recommend it for someone that knows they like this style of books - it really does read like an autobiography, there are lots of dates and places and names to keep up with. But if that's your thing, this is a great book.
