Received as a RABCK with much thanks! It will probably be a while before I get to this, but I'm looking forward to it.

6 out of 10

Well, I finally got around to reading this... I knew, going in, that much debate had surfaced about how truthful this memoir actually was.

Overall, I felt this was only okay. Even if everything had been completely truthful, I felt as though there was sometimes too much detail. Some incidents just seemed too personal to share. The writing was decent but not great and I felt that I didn't really know any of the Doctor's family. Often, their actions would confuse me - whatever was happening didn't seem inline with what I thought I knew about the character.

I did finish the book - it seemed to end rather abruptly. I wouldn't read this again and I don't know if I'd recommend it to anyone but I wouldn't tell someone to not read it, if they had an interest in it.
