Red Star Tattoo Download Ð 4 Summary Ï PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Sonja Larsen review Red Star Tattoo Three years at the organization's national headuarters Larsen works sixteen hour day eager to prove herself Noticed and encouraged by the Old Man the organization's charismatic leader he makes her one of his special girls as well as the youngest member of the organization's militia and part of its inner circle But even as she and her comrades count down the days on the calendar until the dawning of their new American revolution Larsen's doubts about the cause and the Old Man become increasingly difficult to ignore      Red Star Tattoo explores the seductions and dangers of extremism and asks what it takes to survive a childhood scarred by loss abuse and the sometimes violent struggle for belonging. This book wasn t what I expected from the jacket so I m glad I gave it a chance I had expected a memoir based on youthful self righteousness which would have been off putting This wasn t the case and made me rethink the type of people who join cult movements The author was yearning for a sense of purpose and belonging excited about being part of a greater cause and clinging to this cause even as she began to observe the dark truth behind it all She is a keen observer of her own pyschology and has an astute self awareness that is surprising for someone with her history eg high school drop out few role models I admire this ability to examine one s own thoughts feelings beliefs and judgements in such an honest and insightful way Which makes this an effective memoir at the end of the day It s all about figuring yourself out the best in you and the worst in you Making sense of it and changing course to a path that works for you

Red Star Tattoo Download Ð 4 Summary Ï PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Sonja Larsen review Red Star Tattoo Me as a pregnant teenager by her evangelical preacher father is drawn to the utopian ideals and radical politics of communism Her aunt Suzie is gripped by schizophrenia her behaviour so erratic she eventually loses custody of her daughter And then there is her cousin Dana shunted back and forth long distance between her parents Dana whose own need to escape leads to tragedy     Looking for a sense of family searching to belong to have your life mean something this is what all these girls and young women share As a teenager Larsen moves to Brooklyn embedding herself with an organization known publicly as the National Labor Federation and privately as the Communist Party USA Provisional Wing Over her. DNF I read about 100 pages This was sent to me from Penguin Random House CanadaI picked this book because I thought it could be interesting and I really enjoy memoirs and reading about topics on mental illness and how bazar someone s life can be but I found this dull and boringIt doesn t help that the author is completely unknown I looked her up I don t know who she is or what else would make her interesting other than her unstable and unconventional and sad childhood I have a lot of stories is written as part of her bio on her website and maybe a novel would have been interesting to me because of her life experience I would have liked of an explanation at the beginning of the book I felt uite lost while read it and I found the writing needed a little work or another edit This memoir included black and white photos but weren t consistent It s uite random when they pop up and for the middle section of the book there s no photos included at all until the end The placement of the photos are kind of awkward too This could maybe be a better hit to readers who can relate to Sonja s story in a personal way
