Although I liked the book because it's a page turner, and you want to know what is going to happen next, I could hardly stomach the writer. I almost didn't feel sorry for her. She constantly insults people of other races with her description of them. As if to say this should only happen to you if you are 'hispanic, black, homeless or grimy' and don't have money up the ying yang. I had to laugh in the description of herself saying she is 'blond' and her whole familiy is blonde. What does that have to do with ANYTHING!? I can't stand 'white' supremists of any kind and she acts like one in the entire book. And, I'm white and blond, so I think she should listen to what I'm saying cuz you know, I don't have black hair....sickening!

As a survivor of domestic violence, I have wrote on the subject as well. Therefore, I have to say I was unimpressed with "Crazy Love". I do not feel it is an uplifting book, instead I think the author sets a haughty example which can be rather irritating. I challenge her viewpoints on domestic violence and can't say I agree with much of her message. I have found in my soul-searching what is thought of as love, is actually fear disguised. There is no doubt a wealthy woman can find herself in an abusive relationship, but I do not care for the snobbish theme of the book. I had high hopes for the book but sadly it did not measure up. I do applaud the effort to bring domestic violence back to the spotlight though.

    Very interesting book, was given as a gift so I had no idea it was about domestic violence, but nonetheless it ended up being a pretty good book, gave me a different perspective of domestic violence.

    Good

    I really enjoyed reading this. You really feel bad for her for not knowing what was going on. I only read this book because I just wanted to know what goes on in their minds. Also to know what to do if I knew someone in this situation. Again I really enjoyed this book.

    Great book, quick read.

    A deep look into an abusive relationship and a better understanding of what women go through in those types of situations.

    Sticks with you

    Great memoir. Stirring and disturbing, this book will haunt you. Crazy Love gives a wonderful, intimate account of what it is like to be in an abusive and violent relationship, and to be absorbed to the point that you can't break free, but know you must. It is interesting to see here how the abuse starts, and the cycle(s) that occur thereafter.

    Kudos to Leslie Morgan Steiner for her honesty and bravery!
