Book Review:More Than it Hurts You by Darin Strauss
I had such high hopes for this book since the subject really interests me, Munchausen by proxy, (where a mother intentionally harms her baby) and because it was recommended (by who, I have no idea, lol). I didn't really care for it much at all. It was readable but just not gripping. The story unfolds from so many characters that you never feel like you get to know one of them well or even get slightly attached were you give a damn what happens to them. You barely even got a good understanding of where they were coming from. Not sure if it's the story itself or the writing style that I didn't care for, probably both, but whatever it is, it's not a book I'd recommend.
