How on earth could a person 'love' a book that is based on lies? What kind of person would 'love' a book that denigrates a person who cannot defend himself? The only conclusion is that the person who 'loves' a book like this must have the same level of indecency and those involved in its publication. There is no integrity in dancing on a dead man's grave and forever torturing his children. The written word is forever.

It's Sunday which could only mean one thing -- time for another random 5-star review! (*eye roll*) All the usual comments... Couldn't put it down, a great read, very well written, blah blah blah. Congrats on throwing a new comment into the mix -- "I loved every chapter". Nice try.

Notice how there is never any elaboration as to why the 'reviewer' thinks the book is "well written" and why they "could not put this book down at all?" What makes it a "great read?"

@ Mrs. C
I had just written a post regarding those questions, but hit the wrong button and lost it.
@ Donna Hackensack:
Please tell us why you love ALL the chapters and found it be a great read, and I would like examples: especially the chapter describing the super-human strength Mr. Armstrong displayed during the pool fight.
Ms. Armstrong wrote this book of lies after Mr. Armstrong's death and he is not here to be able to refute the accusations she has made against him. His children, family members, and friends are the ones who have to suffer with the accusations, horrific lies, and fallout this book of lies has created. They are not able to grieve, and find peace. This book has and is doing grave harm to them, as well as the victims, survivors, and family members of DV.
This book has been written for BLOOD MONEY so Ms. Armstrong can maintain her lavish lifestyle and IMO to be used as a defense in her upcoming trial. According to her, she was under duress and threatened with beatings if she did not sign those papers. All that paperwork that needed her signature must have occurred during all those 6 weeks beating schedules. Also she sure did not have a problem cashing the checks received by ill-gotten gains, and if I remember correctly some of those checks were made out to her.
Very sad that you would find a book about DV (especially a book IMO of lies) such a great read that you could not put down. Myself I find would such a book horrific.

lol - really - edge of your seat reading? I thought it sucked but you are entitled to your opinion. It wasn't meant to be a page turner. I still wonder how she remembers what happened at 2 yo and what pajamas she wore at 2 yo. I certainly don't remember from that age. She must be some kind of idiot savant to remember those details. We're not talking about 5 yo - she's talking about when she was 1 to 2 according to when her mother got divorced from her father.

Exactly the question I was going to ask, Mrs. C.
It is frustrating to me that there is never ever any elaboration from any of the 5 star reviewers who simply stop at: a great read, couldn't put it down, love it, well-written, an inspiration...explanation please.
The Ninja pool fight is probably the "very edge of your seat reading", kind of what I would do if I were reading a suspense novel, which I believe TA's book is not.
Other than that, what else you got?

"edge of your seat reading??? It's more like *Wedge* of your seat!
This FICTIONAL book was poorly written, there is BLOOD & Shame all over it, and it's author is a common criminal; albeit w/ duck lips. Have a lovely day.

I've lost the ability to say anything other than "yawn, blah blah blah, yadda yadda" to these weak 5-star reviews. Thesaurus anyone?

Has anybody noticed that the "couldn't put it down" reviewers always take two days to finish the book? That indicates some common origin to these reviews, as if we didn't know that already.
"I can't tell you how good this book is." Obviously, you cannot.
