The Indian Reading Duo Review 🇮🇳📚
Author- Tara Westover
Genre- Nonfiction/ Autobiography
We say that world is evolved or advanced to a length that now we reached on moon! But not all! There are many who still struggle for basic amenities or they are refrained by circumstances or situations as we know all fingers are not same. Educated is remarkable and beautiful tale of hope, struggle, survival and success.
This powerful memoir elaborates Tara’s journey from the foothills of Buck’s peak in Idaho to Cambridge University. A religious fanatic abusive father who does not believe in education,medical assistance or sanitization ruled the family. Youngest of 7 children ‘Tara’ grew up radically wild. She hardly took bath in childhood or washed hands after restroom. Even burns of explosion were treated by herbs,not permitted to go to doctor, school or have any government facilities. In essence nobody was allowed to connect with the outside world!
If something bad happened with them,it was considered to be will of God,even her brother’s mental health deterioration or violent behaviour was ignored for the same reason. She takes little help and self educates herself in Maths and English. Her determination and struggle to gain, improve and inculcate education to reach college is sympathetic!
We come across many fiction stories and rare non fictional inspirational stories. What I loved about Educated is that it truly motivates and leaves us thinking that we are so blessed to have so many things and we underestimate them than valuing it.
Educated is soul wrenching ordeal of Tara and it is immensely worth reading & immensely worth recommendation!❤️
