I've never gotten bored so quickly with a book. I'd picked it up for the whole "trapped in an insane asylum" concept, but it felt like I was reading a biography of a girl living in an overly misogynistic world. I could barely get past the first few chapters, and I never did finish it.

It dident really tell why they tried to give her a diffrent name and to me if they give her a diffrent name at that place it would be more brainwashing that whhat she did in the book.
