Book Club of One

My second book from the library was titled, Postcards from Berlin by Margaret Leroy. This book was slow at times and probably could have had a few sections cut out but overall it was really interesting. It is about a mother who is suspected of inducing or fabricating her eight year old daughter's mystery illness, known as Munchausen by Proxy.

Because it went from high/interesting to low/boring, I would give this book a 5/10. It was a serious and rather deep book due to the subject matter and really made me feel awful for the mother. It seemed no matter what she did the doctors twisted it into a negative behavior directed toward her sick daughter. Not necessarily a true happy ending book either. It you're not the type to ONLY read happy-go-lucky books and are interested in the psychology of Munchausen by Proxy syndrome then you would definitely enjoy this book. I enjoyed it!
