This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
The person who would enjoy this book likes listening to stories about teen girls in difficult circumstances, and need to hear moms expressing compassion for their children. It would be enjoyable to someone who has a Christ-centered perspective on life, but don't like to talk about their faith as a powerful thing that can transform them.
Would you recommend Surviving Ophelia to your friends? Why or why not?
No.I thought I'd find something as amazing as Reviving Ophelia.
This title only takes from Mary Pipher's credibility, and in no way adds anything significant to the dialogue from a mother's point of view. It is a book based on weakness, not strength. Honestly, It might have gotten better. I couldn't get through it. I tried for two hours.
What didn’t you like about Marguerite Gavin’s performance?
She read all of the stories in the same exact voice. I didn't get a sense that this was about more than one person. I had no idea who was speaking: the author? A guest writer? The author again? I think it could have been read by about ten different people to make it more understandable.
Any additional comments?
Warning: It's religious, but not empowered. It's not feminist, it's not clear enough about the mother/daughter relationship at all.
