5 out of 5 stars
The story Mommie Dearest by Christina Crawford is a biography. It tells the story of a daughter whose only wish in life is to be loved and gain the acceptance of her mother Joan Crawford. It is also a book that sheds light on the abuse that she received. The story is heartbreaking and at times had me angry with situations that occurred. It is also a story of survival and of the strength of character that Christina showed throughout her life. The book gives details about Hollywood and the different roles that Joan Crawford played as well as how alcohol was a major part of her life. I found my emotions going up and down the entire time that I was reading this story and I found Christina to be someone what I had empathy for. Even with her home life in chaos, Christina was a someone who excelled in all that she did. This is a story that kept me up far into the night as I just couldn’t put it down until I had finished the final page. This is a biography that touched me deeply. I highly recommend reading it.
