ich fand dieses Buch wirklich gut erzählt. Wenn man bedenkt das es keine Geschichte, sondern eine Biografie ist ... wirklich traurig. Aber dafür hat sie ihren Weg echt super gemeistert!

HASH(0xa0642a20) von 5 Sternen Disjointed 11. Januar 2015
Von E.C. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I read Pride over Pity with the same guilty pleasure I feel when I watch Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2. Honestly, it's like watching a train wreck. I finished this book quickly, because 1) the writing was like reading a paper aimed at elementary school students, and 2) it was so lame, I wanted to see how much worse it got.

Of the girls on Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2, I actually thought Kailyn had the most ability to write a good book about her life. She seems intelligent enough to get her thoughts on a page coherently. Part of me wonders if this book hadn't been ghostwritten, if Kailyn's writing could have been better.

I had a lot of problems with the book though.

1. There was no reason to the order of the chapters. It wasn't a chronological narrative of her life. Things bounced around so much and the chapters seemed random and mismatched.

2. I felt like I was reading entries out of her diary, instead of something that is trying to tell a story and had been edited (and in this case, ghostwritten.)

3. Kailyn's really annoying. So much of the book comes off as preachy and holier-than-thou. Kailyn slams people who are religious pretty hard, while at the same time being incredibly defensive of people putting her down for her atheism. Hypocritical much?

4. And with her atheism in mind, WE GET IT. There were many times I found that she had to insert the fact that she was atheist, when it was incredibly irrelevant to the rest of the chapter. OK, you wanted to name your kid Moses potentially. It might be a biblical name but oooooh, you're atheist. Or the mention of how she was bothered by a bible verse being read at her legal marriage to Javi because she's atheist. I don't give a s*** what her religion is, but whatever it is, it's annoying to hear about it every few breaths. It also bothered me how she implied religious people lacked logic. I'm not even religious. I actually hold closer religious beliefs to Kailyn than anything, but I don't feel the need to put people down because of their beliefs. And I don't need to justify mine to anyone. Kailyn seems so full of being defensive and justifying who she is.

By the end of the book, I was so glad it was over. I didn't learn much about Kailyn from this book that isn't shown on TV. And it was written poorly. Adrienne Wenner might want to consider a new career, because if this is what her ghostwriting is putting out... Ugh.

HASH(0xa0692708) von 5 Sternen A Little Disappointing 20. April 2014
Von Rose13 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The book started off as a page-turner. It gave a very real and honest insight into Kail's past life and history. She begins the book as someone easily related to, someone who (like the rest of us) has gone through great turmoil and hardship.
However as the book goes on, it is drenched with put downs of those who come from a background of religion or faith. Or basically anyone who has an opinion other than hers, on just about anything. If you need proof, there's an entire chapter devoted to slamming organized religious communities. She attempts to put disclaimers saying she is open to and non judgemental of those who disagree with her, but there's a constant undertone (way beyond just that chapter) of belittling non-atheists and other backgrounds that completely challenges those statements of respect. I am respectful of every background or belief system- I take absolutely no offense to her atheism - but this was too aggressive and off putting. I could tell she would take offense to my beliefs.... It was like there was a definite agenda being shoved down my throat, and it felt like she was going to pop out of the pages, extremely angry at me for disagreeing. (Really I could feel it)
Aside from that, she has been taped and quoted several times saying "it's not like Farrah's book as far as editing, we put a lot of time into this." While the time spent organizing content may have taken years, I am astounded at how many periods were missing, and how many typos were present. I've never understood why such major errors are present, as they are completely prevented with a single read-over. While the content was different, the poor editing was not. I understand that she most likely has little to do with this oversight.
By the latter part of the book I found myself skipping pages and eventually skipping ahead to read the last chapter and putting it down due to the repetitive nature. Struggle struggle persevere preservere past past family family etc etc.
With all of this said, I 100% respect Kail for writing this, as I imagine though while it was probably therapeutic, it was also extremely brave to put such intimate details out into the world. She is one of my favorite moms of all the MTV's pregnancy related series', and she does an outstanding job of giving her precious boys a far better life than she had herself. I may have not enjoyed her overall tone in the book, the amateur editing, or the repetitive nature, but that does not change my respect for her as a person and a mother. Overall it was a somewhat entertaining and easy read. I think she is strong and beautiful, and I love the fundamental message she is trying to send through all of her media facets. As a fellow military spouse with a similar past, I say you go girl!

HASH(0xa06a842c) von 5 Sternen Not what I expected.... SPOILER ALERT 6. Mai 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I choose to read this book, because I have followed the MTV 16 and pregnant series, as well as, Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2. I thought it would be interesting to get some depth to Kail and her life beyond what was captured on television. I also was interested in Jo's story before meeting Kail, so I bought it. I wish now I could return it. (SPOILER ALERT) There were a lot of things I could relate to in Kailyn's life (having an alcoholic mother, abortion, moving around, having sex at too young of an age, bipolar, etc). It did get a little repetitious and annoying to hear how she constantly looks at life from ONLY her own perspective. She came across as being very self absorb with a lack of empathy. Maybe this is just her immaturity and lack of life experience, but I found this to be frustrating and sad for her. The book felt more like a pity party then anything. To be honest, I could stand most of it and kept giving her the benefit of the doubt up until the anti-religion chapter. To read how it bothered her that the man who married them in court quoted a passage from the bible was too much. How can she say that she is fine with everyone's beliefs, but then state that? I actually felt bad for Javi, since he comes from a Catholic family. She is closed minded, but wait she continues to tell us she isn't? I do believe it was hard for her to open up and share all her life experiences and I do praise her for being honest, but parts of me felt she only did this for two reasons, one to make money off of book sales and two, to get her story out before someone else got to profit off of it, which made me actually walking away after reading this book feeling like I liked her a little less. I have tattoos, but I didn't need to hear her feelings about them. It's as though she used this book to defend her life decisions, choices and personal beliefs. I didn't read this book to hear about her tattoos, her being a mermaid or her religious views. I also thought it was sad how she depicted Jo (the father of her first child) and his family. They didn't need to let her in their home and I am sure they only ever got involved in Jo and her fights because they wanted them to make it and work for the baby. This showed me how immature she is not to sit back and be so grateful that not only did they let her in their home, but let her expose their life on television. Where is the gratitude? I am not sure if she understands that not everyone who drinks is a drunk or not everyone who doesn't like tattoos is judging someone who has them. I feel like she really could use an eye opener and some true life experience. This book felt more like opinions and her beliefs, then a story of her life and what happened. Not what I expected.

This is a book meant for teenagers and Kailyn's fan base. It is long and drawn out (I got bored at Chapter 2, but made it all the way to 20.) If you don't know her on Teen Mom 2, don't bother. It's a bunch of complaining and justifying why she's portrayed so negatively in the media.
