"It Won't Hurt None" by Rebecca E. Chandler

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Wednesday, February 8, 2023, In : Book Reviews 

This is an incredible book, on many different levels, and an exceptionally important one – for the reader, for society but, more than anything, for the author.  Rebecca is a survivor in the rawest sense of the word; the sexual abuse she suffered for most of her childhood was depraved and devastating, and she gives her own account candidly and openly.  I’m sure the decision to write this book was many years in the making for her, and that the therapeutic value in doing so is a decisive nex...

"I Am Fun Size and So Are You" by Anjali Bhimani

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, In : Book Reviews 

A very professional and well-polished book, Anjali has spared no expense with this glossy motivational monologue which lives up to the “fun” in its title – colourful and jolly, with flawless styling and some beautifully vivid cartoon illustrations.  It presents as a self-help guide but, perhaps a touch more personal than that, it feels rather more of a prolonged affirmation by the author, as Anjali shares her advice for dealing with the highs and particularly the debilitating lows of li...

"An Independent Woman in Yugoslavia" by Iris Novak

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, In : Book Reviews 


To tell the truth, I was expecting something a little different from this book.  No particular reason, but from the title I had a hunch that An Independent Woman In Yugoslavia was going to be perhaps the travel memoir of a midlife divorcee ticking off a bucket list entry.  And if I’m being even more truthful, I’m very glad that it wasn’t.  Instead, what this book actually is is a memoir of a very normal life, if lived by an extraordinary woman.  Iris is an achiever, no doubt, and an inc...

"Black, White and Gray All Over" by Frederick Douglass Reynolds

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, In : Book Reviews 


Two major bullet points stood out about his epic book for me.  First, it is a top quality, immensely crafted piece of writing, the work which has gone into producing it undeniably vast and conscientious.  Second, it is an incredibly hard book to read, for several reasons.

To begin, I want to say that Frederick Reynolds is awe inspiring.  His work rate and attention to detail are second to very few authors I have read.  Not just a writer but a man and a professional to be taken very seriously...

"Roller Rink Starlight" by William Hart

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Saturday, June 12, 2021, In : Book Reviews 


William Hart is an excellent writer, accomplished and professional; in a way, that makes this otherwise standard coming-of-age memoir a slight cut above.  In point of fact, I call it “coming of age”, but truthfully the characters are much younger than this – for this reason the content of this book didn’t really sit right with me at times, and readers are warned in this respect.  It is pretty vivid in its the sexual content, and I found this a little uncomfortable, because in the main...

"Bold Soldier For Jesus" by Peggy Thorns

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, In : Book Reviews 


I have to be honest and admit that I find it something of a challenge reviewing faith books like this one, for the simple reason that I’m an atheist, and Peggy’s motivational memoir is for its largest part sermonizing the scriptures and the benefits of dedicating one’s life to God – she is in fact an ordained minister.  Of course I utterly respect her as an author, a person and a believer, though all I can do is present my review of the book objectively as a creative written compositi...

"Dr. Insomniac" by Samatha Polisetti

Posted by Margaret Walker on Sunday, June 7, 2020, In : Book Reviews 


Sometimes soul-searching and often gruesome, Dr. Insomniac is one of those medical memoirs of which you swear you’ll just devour one more chapter late at night until, before you know it, dawn is peeping through the curtains.  It’s short but memorable.  Samatha Polisetti manages to pack a lifetime of adventures into a few chapters, from the perspective of a young doctor in India working in many branches of medicine.  The gender bias in the medical hierarchy and in the country in general is...

"Our Teenage Years: Growing Up in a Small Town in the Eighties" by T.J. Wray

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Monday, March 9, 2020, In : Book Reviews 

At first glance, this book comes across as your average, happy-memories, reminiscent memoir, with friends, drink, girls, cars and all the usual fare – and, that it most definitely is.  However, as you read on, and indeed between the lines, you realize there is more to it, and more to its author – perhaps even he is unaware of it.  Your admiration only grows for T.J., his general attitude and his strength of character.  Sure, his life was ordinary, but his childhood was far from what one w...

"Lady Father" by Rev. Susan Bowman

Posted by Margaret Walker on Thursday, March 5, 2020, In : Book Reviews 


Jesus said: ‘Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.’

My first thought when I read this story about the woman caught in adultery was: Where is the man?  It is true, as the Reverend Susan Bowman discovered, that if you are one: a man, and two: not ordained, then you can get away with a great deal.  If you are a woman priest, then you are toast.

I come from Sydney, Australia, the home of the ‘S’ word: women’s ‘submission’ to men in the Anglican (aka Episcopal) Church.  ...

"Nobody Gets Out of Catering Alive" by Joe Montaperto

Posted by Margaret Walker on Monday, February 24, 2020, In : Book Reviews 


Nobody Gets Out of Catering Alive really is a funny memoir.  My congratulations to the author.

Set in the 1990s and related in a rolling comedian chant – ‘I wish I could stop this compulsive entertaining’ – Joe Montaperto is a comedian down on his luck.  His hair is falling out, he’s only earning enough to pay for the bus to work and he’s living with his parents, creating his own maudlin entertainment by watching 1960s reruns.

As he lurches through his thirties with chronic inso...

"Wacky on the Junk" by Kathy Varner

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Monday, September 23, 2019, In : Book Reviews 

This short, profound memoir is an honest and candid account of a young woman’s recollection of coming of age, against a culture backdrop of lacking direction and recreational drug use.  To the despair of her parents, as a troublesome teen, Kathy Varner has no plans other than to hang out, get high and see her favourite live bands.  The book is very matter-of-fact, with a punchy narrative, as Kathy describes how she simply allowed life to happen to her, whilst not knowing how and when to say...

"From Foster Care To Millionaire" by Cody McLain

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Friday, July 26, 2019, In : Book Reviews 


Beautifully written and utterly engaging, right from the off, Cody’s intense attention to detail is visible throughout this book.  Whilst I have read a lot of memoirs, many of which project an increasingly bitter adulthood onto childhood trauma and don’t particularly have the desired effect of instilling empathy on the reader, Cody’s is the exact opposite of this – a tale of someone who suffered as a child, and overcame it to take control of his life.  In this boy’s case, I feel utt...

"WHEN I TURNED NINETEEN" BY GLYN HAYNIE

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Sunday, March 24, 2019, In : Book Reviews 



Glyn Haynie is a superb author, with whom I am already acquainted, having read and reviewed the follow-up: “Finding My Platoon Brothers”.  One thing which struck me when reading this book, compared to his reminiscences in the sequel, is that his humanity appears much deeper nowadays, than then at 19 – though perhaps this comes with age; perhaps reflection.  I couldn’t help thinking that very quickly into his tour of duty (weeks, maybe) he appeared already to be desensitizing to the ho...

"Finding My Platoon Brothers" by Glyn Haynie

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Saturday, March 2, 2019, In : Book Reviews 



Instantly, even before starting the book, and then reading the introductory matter, the poignancy of this book strikes you, and you know immediately it is going to be an affecting read, compounded not only by the terrible trauma these poor young boys (little more than children, in many cases) experienced in the Vietnam war, but, perhaps in some ways more upsettingly, by the disgraceful injustice of vilification by their own country, upon their return.  To draw a positive, though, these experi...

"Victoria's Voice: Our Daughter's Dying Wish To Share Her Diary And Save Lives From Drugs" by David and Jackie Siegel

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Monday, January 7, 2019, In : Book Reviews 



“Victoria’s Voice” is a tragic account of teenage depression and self-destruction, more tragic still because the tale is so common as to seem familiar, even though in reality the world Victoria occupied was probably a million miles from the majority of our own.  It seems very clear, right from the opening paragraphs, that Victoria was another sad victim of the American dream’s flipside, with all the artifice and superficiality that goes with that life of luxury; her death was one of m...

"JUST ANOTHER GIRL'S STORY: A MEMOIR ON FINDING REDEMPTION" By Laura Eckert

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Friday, April 6, 2018, In : Book Reviews 


People write books for a variety of reasons – sometimes they have a lesson to teach, or a message to share, sometimes it is to make money, and sometimes for their own therapy. In Laura’s case, you get the distinct impression throughout that therapy is her reason; however, as you start to reach the final chapters of “Just Another Girl’s Story...” , you come to realize that the “redemption” to which she refers in the title, she is assuming from spreading her pro-life mess...

"FINDING THE NARROW PATH" By Lin Wilder

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Sunday, September 24, 2017, In : Book Reviews 


This is the third of Lin Wilder’s books I’ve read, and the only non-fiction title, the first two being instalments 1 and 2 of her Lindsey McCall series.  It is the memoir of Lin’s own life and her diversion from, then return to religion.  Ironically, and somewhat surprisingly for me, it is the best I’ve read from her, without a shadow of doubt.  I may not be a believer to any degree, yet Lin’s biography had me spellbound, and I simply couldn’t put it down until midway (and even ...

"OFF THE GRID: LIVING BLIND WITHOUT THE INTERNET" BY ROBERT KINGETT

Posted by Matt McAvoy on Friday, March 24, 2017, In : Book Reviews 



When I first picked up this book my initial presumption was that it was about how vitally important the internet is in the life of somebody with such a debilitating disability, and the struggles of life without it.  Of course, the immediate response to that of most people above a certain age is likely to be that blind people have always had to live without the internet, and it is only very recent times that have afforded the opportunity for the better quality of life it provides.  And while I...
