Why Ruby is not for everyone

Book Review

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

While this is an Oprah Book Club book and has many awards, it is not a book for the average person or faint of heart. There were many episodes that I cringed and was horrified at the lost souls.

The book is well-written… it is the story and the storytelling that kept me pushing through until the end… but I was not happy at the end of a commitment to a 354-page reading… it could have been told in less time… and in less gruesome detail.
