So why was I so bored? I'm a fellow ADOPTEE, and I could barely get through this book. It's mainly because many of the adoptees in this collection are just plain bad writers, but it also has to do with the layout of the book--no overall theme, no linking together of stories, no effort to present these stories in a creative or innovative way.
Is it necessary to be creative? No. But since it's hard enough for our voices (as adoptees) to be heard in the first place, publishing dull, lifeless works like this anthology will do little to help raise awareness. This book is only really useful if assigned as an empathy assignment, but the creeping dullness would most likely counteract any positive effect it might have.
