What made the experience of listening to The Other Side the most enjoyable?
I would not call this book enjoyable. Rather, it is riveting. Never before have I simply sat, transfixed, while listening to a book. I found myself unable to move, unable to tear myself away. Not once did my mind wander.
What does Lacy M. Johnson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Hearing this story in the author's own voice lends a certain tension to the reading that could never be credibly done by someone who has not experienced it.
Any additional comments?
I would caution someone who has not come to terms with their own stories of abuse. This book is raw.

I just downloaded this on a whim but felt it was very well written. The author performs it movingly and her voice is clear and tone is just right. I read everything from the Caro biographies of Johnson to Moral Tribes by Joshua Greene to novels by Adichie, Murakami, Kunzru and David Mitchell. Barbara Kingsolver and Dorothy Allison had a memoir baby and this is it.
