A Book That Hit Uitebook that hit uite chord with me Some lements were awfully familiar I found it The Day Christ Was Born: The True Account of the First 24 Hours of Jesus's Life easy to read and I couldn t put it down I did have one issue with the book which stopped me from giving 4 stars I felt the narrator s voice to adult throughout butven so when she recounted memories from her childhood This was particularly irritating with arly memories aged 4 8 Things she said motions felt were far far too adult This reduced my belief in the character Even if any of this novel were from real life from the author s xperiences I don t believe that is how a child would respond to some of these scenarios It was sad that she accepted so much responsibility for her mother s worsening behaviour No child can take that on their shoulders In the nd that began to irritate me and I hoped that by the PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition end she would acknowledge her mother s responsibility for her own behaviour no matter how saddening it is for depression to bever present in the family.
