Everyone's Life

Ms Gildiner has entwined humor, truth, enlightment and uncomprimising life into her story. I believe that everyone will find a bit of themselves in "Too Close To The Falls."

This memoir is a kick in the pants. At each reading, I found myself laughing out loud. Her voice stays with you long after finishing the last page. I regret not having sat next to her in school- what a hoot! I am going to buy multiple copies to give to my friends- I want to keep my own copy to remember how much I enjoyed hearing from this unusual, clever person. I am glad to know she is publishing a sequel.

I am reading this book on a recommendation from a friend. She read the book at her book club. This book is the easiest reading I've ever had the pleasure to read. Keeps your attention from start to finish.
