It would be too easy to judge, from the outside looking in. Why didn't she listen to her friends, why didn't she listen to her family. Why didn't the fact that he was married twice before, and one of his wives had committed suicide, not to set off an alarm far earlier than it did? And why didn't her concern for her children lead her to leave him rather than convince her to stay with him, until it was almost too late?
But most of us know someone who has been in a similar situation. That is why Sarah Tate's book is so important. To tell an important story - a confession of sorts. An open, honest and often painful appraisal of her life and who she was during this time. Perhaps, when we know of friends who are lying to themselves in similar situations, we should simply give them this book to read, rather than offer advice that we know they will ignore. Let them read and recognize her words as words that they could have easily uttered themselves.
We live in a world where reality is very elusive.Read more ›
But for those who have had their lives hollowed out by a parasite posing to be intially your friend and 'soul mate', Web of Lies is an accurate case study of the typical experience.
There were times when this case study could be a transcript of my own experience so I found the book one I was compelled to read. The flagship honey moon start, lies from the 'get go', lots of drama and unhappiness once your life is aligned within this crazy existance. The book would be worth a read of anyone who wonders if they are going mad or possibly their partner has some weird issues that border on just rediculous.
This book has joined the many I explored to find some understanding of my own experience. As so accurately written so many times, it is the victims that seek therapy and try to rebuild. The narcissist just moves their nest and destructive pathological lies and attaches to the next unsuspecting person.
Well done to the author Sarah, not an easy experience I imagine, but writing it out, alerting others, becoming more self aware, all assists us to rebuild.
I would recommend this to anyone dealing with narcissists, the problem being, once you recognise it, it is usually too late.
Although Sarah represses her rage and despair most of the time, when she does find out exactly what Bill is up to behind her back, there's a very satisfying scene where she starts to take back her power.
The awful truth of what really happened to Bill's second wife makes the book even more powerful.
Ultimately, the saddest thing about narcissism is that well-meaning witnesses are ineffective; the narcissist's spell is so strong. After reading this book I began to see narcissism as a sort of Ponzi scheme, where the narcissist feeds off one victim and uses the money and resources remaining from that destroyed relationship to attach to another victim. The lies begin again.Read more ›
This story makes me think of my first marriage. It makes me think if I hadn't gotten out as quickly as I did, how my life might have turned out so much differently. You begin to see inside the relationship, instead of seeing it from the outside-in. You begin to see the suffering one goes through privately, while trying to hold things together publicly.
This book is a very good read. In fact, I managed to read the entire book in only a couple of hours. I am really glad that Sarah found her way out of the situation she found herself in. I am also sad that other women had been and would continue to fall victim to such a man. Mental illnesses so often go undiagnosed and untreated in so many lives. This book serves to shed light on a personality disorder that will destroy the lives of people all around the individual it affects, while the actual individual continues to blame his or her misfortunes on someone else. I applaud you, Sarah, for sharing your story with the world through your book.
I'm giving this book 3½ spiders and recommending it to everyone.
