One of the best books I've ever read!

This book is incredible! I love it! It changed me. It's very hopeful, forgiving and empathetic. I'm so impressed by the author's human resilience. If your considering it you won't be waisting your time!

Great book

Different. If you like "Where the Crawdads Sing" you'll love this.

Wonderful book


Gripping & Fantastic

This book is wonderful. It is a true story that reads like fiction due to Tara's amazing writing skills and unbelievable experiences. It's gripping - I truly couldn't put it down and have been thinking about it and recommending it nonstop. Educated sheds light on the damage that can be done by your family, even out of love. In this way, I think that anyone can relate to this book through a lens of how to deal with someone you love that is hurting you. I found it to be inspiring, and truly a great read. I would recommend to everyone.

Tara Westover's life experience and writing style are totally unique . . .

I picked up Educated because it's "required" reading for the incoming freshman class at my college and I didn't have high hopes. At best I was expecting a long-winded and overtly pretentious memoir where any interesting bits were washed away by big words and a lack of perspective. Educated in none of those things. Tara Westover's life experience and writing style are totally unique and it draws you in from the first chapter. Her early life was an absolute rollercoaster and by the end you'll feel like you've been through it with her. I'd recommend Educated to anyone looking for an inspiring and introspective non-fiction book with a unique perspective and an overarching message about home.
