This book was intriguing, confusing, enlightening, and frustrating. It is the story of a woman who suffered incredible horrors from the time she was 2 years old till she left aroung age 15 or 16. She was physically, sexually and verbally abused by her step-father, and physically and verbally abused by her mother. In her attempt to survive these horrors, she split and evolved many personalities - some still functioning and some incredibly damged. The story unfolds through her sessions with her therapist and through a manuscript that was written by various personalities which she calls "The Troops". It does not unfold linearly, and the reader does not always know which of the troops is speaking or taking control. It was an incredible journey for a woman who only figures out in her 30's that she is a vessle for over 90 very different people. I feel that I will need to read it again at some point - it is difficult to imagine how she could have survived with what the step-father did to her and what the mother sat back and allowed to happen.

On one hand this book is a hard read but on the other hand I had trouble putting it down. Remarkable woman. ( )

To be honest it was a very hard book to read. very confusing with all the troops characters. I thought it was a bit weird that the troops were writing this story. I liked Sybil much better but there were parts of this book that were really good. What a sad story.

I had read started to read this book when it first came out then had to put it away. It was to much emotionally for me.I felt so horrible for Truddi and to know that evil affects even little children so profoundly. I eventually got rid of the book with out finishing it. Fast foward 15 years? later and I checked it out at my local library. I forced myself through it and was amazed at the endurance of the human spirit and what the mind does in order to protect . I had read Sybil when I was in high school and while that was a horrible case of abuse and personality disorder it did not have the impact on me that this book did. Not for the weak hearted. ( )

After watching the newest show on Oprah mentioning and talking about Truddi Chase and after wanting to do more reading the disorder side of this phenomena, I decided to pick-up this book. A really good read. it’s a autobiography written in a story format. This way of writing really helped the book easier to follow along. Their story truly was a fascinating and chilling read about their prolonged abuse as a child and their growth into a more functioning multiple system. ( )
