Amazing, complex, fascinating

After reading this book, not only do I understand Jane Fonda a bit better, but I understand myself a bit better, also! Extremely well written and deeply felt, I can only say: read it and see for yourself. Wow.

If She takes the responibility for the deaths and suffering she was involved in! For example: The beatings the U.S. P.O.W.'S had to endure after she turned them into the commandant for trying to get the word out who they were and that they were still alive, to thier families! Is her proceeds for her book going to the families that don't have thier loved ones because of the atrocities she committed?

    Don't Bother

    I was looking forward to reading this book; unfortunately, this book is really awful. Fonda divided her book into acts. Act I is a monotonous and repetitive whinefest: a suicidal mother and cold father are apparently responsible for distorting her self-image and self-esteem. Act I included some details I just didn't want to know. Act II is a sugar-coated and slanted historical narrative of Fonda's political 'activism' in the late sixties and seventies. Fonda 'voice' or style of writing reminds me of my high school students. Whenever my students learn new vocabulary words, they often try to use the words in sentences. Sadly, the new, big words sometimes just don't fit into the context of the sentences. The armchair psychology woven throughout the book is also pretty annoying. UPS just delivered a big box of books from Barnes and Noble--I think I will probably skip Act III.

    Traitor Gets Rich While Soldiers Die

    Who cares about this treasonous and traitorous woman? She should hang her head in shame over selling our fighting men down the drain. She is a national shame and a disgrace. I wish she would quietly move to North Vietnam or France.

    She won't go away

    Another ploy to blame her bad choices on everyone else -- women, men in her bed with her husband. Her father, such a bad parent she had to forgive him finally before he died. It always seems she needs to dump it on the deceased. I really don't know how much of this to believe. Maybe if she lets them hook up her to a lie detector. (I borrowed this book. I purchase a lot of books, but I would never pay a penny for anything she wrote.)
