Guts, But Wisdom?,
By A Customer
This review is from: Making a Miracle (Hardcover)
The customer-reviews were interesting, but hard to evaluate. Too many sounded as if written by the author's fellow Born-Agains, which is fine, but some glaring trouble spots in the author's present thinking were overlooked. For example, Hunter Tylo seemed not to realize perhaps (giving her the benefit of the doubt) how mean-spirited it was to actually name the names of her ex-bestfriend-actress as well as the married actor Hunter claims made overtures to her [Not every reader is privy to nor wants to hear backstage soap-star intrigues]. These colleagues' privacy rights were not respected, they could not defend themselves, and think how devastating for their families to learn this in such a public way. Also, even if every single thing she said about them were true, this was years ago -- aren't they allowed the privilege Hunter gave herself of evolving, maturing? Instead, their personalities have become frozen, negative images per her book. Her husband also seemed to be more decent that she seems willing even now to give him credit for in the past. I also wondered about some of her religious friends who turned her away from the Eastern artifacts in her house -- they seemed equally disturbing in their overreaction to other religions. Hunter Tylo seems to be a sincere person and I wish her and her family well. But I do wonder if somewhere down the road, she might realize that she still seems to have some resentment to release, and that mending fences, as she states she dearly would love to do with her ex-friend, is better done by not subjecting the ex-friend to such unauthorized exposure. I did enjoy, even felt inspired by the last chapters. Even though the writing is high-school level, the author did manage to provide poignant moments when she spoke about feeling connected to God, and that was truly beautiful.
