Ophrah: A Biography

This book was generally interesting, but it was quite annoying that the author made so many snide comments. The reader's whiny tone of voice dictated a negative interpretation of her words. I kept wondering if she spoke the same words in a more positive manner, would their message be different? It seems to me that she took many, many things people said out of context and put a nasty spin on them. I got through the first two sections, but am not going to bother with the third. It seemed like hearsay from people who held grudges. I wouldn't bother with it.
