书籍简介:

Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention. It is a tale of fierce family loyalty, and of the grief that comes from severing one’s closest ties. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one’s life through new eyes, and the will to change it.

作者简介:

Tara Westover is an American author living in the UK. Born in Idaho to a father opposed to public education, she never attended school. She spent her days working in her father's junkyard or stewing herbs for her mother, a self-taught herbalist and midwife. She was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom, and after that first taste, she pursued learning for a decade. She graduated magna cum laude from Brigham Young University in 2008 and was subsequently awarded a Gates Cambridge Scholarship. She earned an MPhil from Trinity College, Cambridge in 2009, and in 2010 was a visiting fellow at Harvard University. She returned to Cambridge, where she was awarded a PhD in history in 2014.

书友短评:

@ 毛姆闷闷舅舅 这本书再次印证了那句话:教育改变命运。当然,什么样的教育将命运改变成怎样又是另外一回事了。 @ 烟花彩带圣火台 我能理解美国人喜欢看这种励志故事 但是故事本身和文笔实在让人看不下去 通篇的I&my 叙事流水账 @ 吴明士 读这本书其实很有共鸣。在美国刚开始读大学的经历和她刚进 BYU 的经历很多相似之处,遇到了关心、欣赏我的教授而改变了自己的成长轨迹。也是上了大学之后才逐渐 confront 了自己成长过程中经历的 abuse。当然作者的经历更传奇。 @ PP 我也经历过被家庭控制-痛苦-educated-建立新自我-疏远家庭的过程,但我无法产生共情,因为作者是一个没唱过歌但一唱就能当音乐剧主唱,没上过学靠自学就一路去剑桥的天才。到大学艺术史课布置了reading,作者竟然只看了图片,还找借口说她不知道也要看字,excuse me? 而且如果真的尊重知识好奇求知,不知道要看也会忍不住想看吧?这样的作者,写出了剑桥教授三十多年教学经验见过的最好的论文,很久… 我也经历过被家庭控制-痛苦-educated-建立新自我-疏远家庭的过程,但我无法产生共情,因为作者是一个没唱过歌但一唱就能当音乐剧主唱,没上过学靠自学就一路去剑桥的天才。到大学艺术史课布置了reading,作者竟然只看了图片,还找借口说她不知道也要看字,excuse me? 而且如果真的尊重知识好奇求知,不知道要看也会忍不住想看吧?这样的作者,写出了剑桥教授三十多年教学经验见过的最好的论文,很久没工作被导师警告可能毕不了业重新工作立刻一举写出导师称赞的博士论文顺利毕业,顶着这样的天才光环,那我还能说什么呢。作者以前有多不幸和之后有多幸运并不吸引人,重要的是那些过程中的感受、挣扎、思考和蜕变,但比例上前者太多了,后者太少了,沦为不打动人的猎奇流水账。垃圾场部分有一堆生词,无聊又读起来费劲 @ Baristina Truly inspiring. My childhood was a walk in the park compared to hers. @ Vermillion 第一本有声书撒花!开头以为是一个讲midwest自由灵魂的故事,越听越诡异越丧…还好Taylor的觉醒成功扭转3个人的命运,其实更想听一听Taylor是怎么强行反转的。Gates说这本书会让很多人有共鸣,最终章提炼的每个人社会家庭社区义务的冲突借由教育转型会是很多人共鸣的点。对于我而言,最真实的大概就是本科卧室里可以望见的落基山,是哥特式Chapel小木门拾级而上可以看到的天台,还有慈眉善目的本科… 第一本有声书撒花!开头以为是一个讲midwest自由灵魂的故事,越听越诡异越丧…还好Taylor的觉醒成功扭转3个人的命运,其实更想听一听Taylor是怎么强行反转的。Gates说这本书会让很多人有共鸣,最终章提炼的每个人社会家庭社区义务的冲突借由教育转型会是很多人共鸣的点。对于我而言,最真实的大概就是本科卧室里可以望见的落基山,是哥特式Chapel小木门拾级而上可以看到的天台,还有慈眉善目的本科老师为我写推荐信的经历吧。 @ Rachel Y Think it’s overrated. Too much repetitive rhetorical narration @ 甲醇乙醇 Education is a process of self-discovery of developing a sense of self and what you think. @ 江小流 读了整整三个月,足见英文水平多差……人类的共情果然是困难的,我时常无法理解作者的处境和挣扎 @ 依旧的miss阿渣 我看到了原生家庭对一个人的影响,对一个成长中的女孩的影响;教育带给人的广阔视角;以及投射在不同国度的我身上那种奇妙的共鸣。
