Disaster Preparedness Heather Havrilesky I m sorry I love you and everything you write in Salon NYT Magazine, but I didn t really like your book, and I really wanted to I think the issue with this memoir was, nothing seemed to particularly happen in Havrilesky s childhood that was out of the blue or particularly engrossing, and the way that she naturally writes iscerebral and less action oriented, which isn t really conducive to a memoir where, to a certain cheap An uninteresting memoir about someone s uninteresting life The uninteresting life part would have been fine if she had found some interesting or truly funny way to write about the average things that happened to her But she didn t So her parents got divorced So she has flaws BIG WHOOP I kept reading this book hoping that it would have some kind of positive realization, but the maybe four times Havrilesky was positive it felt saccharine and fake Overall a cliched, repetitive, unnecessary An uninteresting memoir about someone s uninteresting life The uninteresting life part would have been fine if she had found some interesting or truly funny way to write about the average things that happened to her But she didn t So her parents got divorced So she has flaws BIG WHOOP I I read most of this mediocre memoir on a beach in NJ so perhaps it was the extreme environment that soured it for me I had snagged it up on the historic last day of Borders existence for a buck because AJ Jacobs endorsed it and the Library of Congress had it categorized it as 1 Pessimism 2 Emergency Management Both Jacobs a This was a good memoir about growing up the 1970s It was generally a series of essays The book was not a compelling read in that I didn t constantly want to get back to, but it was solid I thought overall, it was generally a 3 star book, but I loved the last essay so much, I bumped it up one notch The last essay focused on how we would like to be the perfect mom with everything clean and neat and we d like to be the person who hired people to help with every unpleasant task so we had tons of This was The author shares my hometown, so it was fun recognizing the landmarks, roads, schools, etc that she writes about Also, the last few pages of this killed me Please remember, we were not a disappointment Not at all, not even close We were gor I love Heather Havrilesky s Television Reviews on Salon,

also does a nice job looking at the larger context of disaster during the years she grew up In many ways, this is the memoir I ve wanted to someday write But the problem is Havrilesky s book is a little boring It s oddly organized I think perhaps she strung together posts from her blog, because it reads like a series of disconnected blog posts She does wayyyyy too much telling and not enough to be honest I m not so much rating this book as memoir it slike a linked collection of essays anyway, probably labeled memoir by the marketing department but for H Havrilesky s impact on my life via the Ask Polly column So much humanity, humor, empathy and heart, with a good dose of sourness thrown in, which is why I like her so much OK people are saying that she didn t have enough bad things happen to her That is not the point of an essay rather, it is the observations And t to be honest I m not so much rating this book as memoir it slike a linked collection of essays anyway, probably labeled memoir by the marketing department bu I ve really enjoyed Havrilesky s advice column Ask Polly where she gently and empathically and sympathetically tells people in the nicest possible way
