    Its hard to say I like it, 'cos its the story of someone going through hell, but at the same time its an interesting, true, and nicely written story of someone going through hell, that they've chosen to share, so presumably the author wants comments.

    I personally don't really like such stories of devastation and pain. I have long held the belief that when you read such stories you invite the essence of them into your life, but I know that is not everyone's view. So as much as I wouldn't like such a story, I know it appeals to a lot of other people.

    It takes a lot to be able to share something so devastating and terrible that happened to you with the world, and maybe the author found a way to release some of that trauma by sharing the experience, so I guess it's a good thing.
