Nothing Is As Bad As the Second World War - Connie Caster

Sub-title:  the true life story of Vera Schwartz Palmieri

This was painful to read, not because of the story it tells but because of the way its written.  One sentence after another of "I did this, and then I did this.." Just awful. The jacket says "she started life as a spoiled, pampered child" and the story never changes that viewpoint of the main character, despite some horrific experiences.  There's a story to tell here but it isn't done with this book.  A great example of the dangers of self-publishing and no editing.
