Book Review: Tara Westover’s ‘Educated’

 

I could not have come from a further world than Tara Westover’s and could not have imagined such a world exists, at the base of a mountain in Idaho.

I kept thinking while swiping the pages, This is why to read. This is why one reads: for such an eye-opening, affecting experience.

Vividly written, a lot of the story is ugly and painful (as laid out in this spoilery interview), but inspiring.

Powerful.

Unforgettable.
