5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Journey April 15, 2009
Format:Paperback
What an amazing read. You are captured at page one and can't put it down until the last page. Whether you are gay or straight, transgendered or not, this book will captivate you and will make you feel the internal struggles and emotional travels of the author. What a masterpiece. The author, who is also the author of Immaculate Fetish (high recommendations as well) will become a household name one day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable. April 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book, one that fully describes the transitioning experience as the long-term evolutionary process that it is. Even if one were to change gender roles as a teen, which the author did not, there are years of agonizing gender dysphoric feelings to deal with. It is in this area that the author excels - describing so vividly what it is like to awaken each day in the wrong body and to deal with every day experiences through the filter of that heaviness, while trying to pretend that everything is fine and will somehow all work out. This book brings to mind the classic short novel Metamorphosis by Kafka. Of course, M was a strange and absurd story about a man who transforms into a cockroach, but on another level it was about accepting the hand one is dealt without regard to the scorn and disgust of others. In that sense, Jamie is indeed a true heroine and someone to be valued and admired. A great value at .99 cents.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating peek May 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very interesting , entertaining and a fun read. I did expect it to be more clinical. Even with out the nuts and bolts it illustrated the angst of being transgendered and how someone of the right mindset can overcome the long process to live and flourish as who they are meant to be. I find the subject unendingly fascinating and recommend this to everyone, trans ,non trans and others to promote understanding and acceptance

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect much for 99c... August 9, 2012
By Amanda

OK, let me start with the basics. This book was not well edited. It is full of spelling, grammar and contextual errors. It is very repetitive, and about 1/3 too long.

The writing itself is weak, with the same phrases being used ad nauseum throughout. Everyone calls everyone "my dear", everyone says "indeed" too much and everyone uses the term "one" to reference themselves. When the narrator speaks as her teenage self, she still speaks exactly the way she does as an adult, as do the other children. It's really very off-putting.

Now, regarding the story itself. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but as a memoir of a transgendered person, I expected more conflict, both internally and with the world. Due to the time travelling narrative, we knew from quite early on that the reassignment surgery was a success and that Jamie went on to lead a happy life. As a child though, she was called a "sissy" by an older brother once, and on another occasion thought briefly of cutting her male genitalia off. Other than that, every person she encountered throughout the story was helpful, positive and supportive. This is wonderful to hear, but it makes for boring reading.

An example that covers both the poor writing and the skipping over of important story elements can be found in this passage. "The weeks ahead would bring the discovery of her problem to the attention of a family member who would lend her the money to have surgery immediately." And with that convenient end of chapter deus ex machina, any further mention of the surgery was forgotten. Very disappointing.

The gender dysphoria could actually have been left out and the story would have been much the same.
