Fascinating and authentic. I don't approve of all of Ms. Hunter's actions, but this book provides a different perspective on a huge national event. I found it fascinating.

I am donating my $15 to the Elizabeth Edwards Foundation. The Elizabeth Edwards Foundation is a charitable organization which will provide educational opportunities, tools and support to youth with limited resources. A much, much better use of my money.

    Should be called, "Why I hate Elizabeth"

    I think this book is honest in some respects, dishonest in others and absolutely horrifying in how Hunter trashes the dead wife of Edwards. Also, has this woman ever had a real job? She seems to have a sense of entitlement I find disturbing...this book is full of name dropping high end hotels, clothing brands and stores,private planes and fancy cars, all on others dime. When she met Edwards she was living in the attic of a friend in New Jersey. In end, I just couldn't believe how much she went after the mother of her daughter's siblings--I hope her daughter will be able to have a relationship with them after this book.

    This book is very poorly written and Rielle's tone throughout the book just disgusted me.

    Don't Waste Your Money!

    While the info disclosed was interesting, this is the POOREST written book I have ever read. First, Rielle Hunter is NOT a writer. She was all over the place chronologically, often repeating herself. Secondly, it is obvious that this book was "rushed" through very quickly and very cheaply i.e. without a proofreader. On ALL 219 pages, there are mispelled words, instances where the wrong word was used and/or words left out of a sentence. It was very difficult to read.

    Shameful

    Not very well written. Sounds like desperation from a socially ostracized home wrecker to gain sympathy. No remorse.
