    I wanted to like this book because I m fascinated by dissociative identity disorder DID The human brain is absolutely amazing in how it can develop ways of allowing individuals to cope with severe trauma.Unfortunately, this book was almost unreadable for a few reasons First, Ms Rosen seemed to pour a jug of commas over the entire book so that they ended up in random places in sentences And then commas were missing from places where they were not optional if the proper meaning was to be maintained In addition, there were many typos misspelled words, words missing If an individual is paying for their own work to be printed and available for purchase, they should at least hire a copy editor for at least one round of review The other major non content related issue with this book was that the point of view was constantly changing It started out as first person and quickly switched to an omniscient view There are a couple of interspersed paragraphs in chapter 3 again in the first person and so on This is a basic tenet taught in writing classes that a consistent point of view must be maintained for clarity.Another basic tenet in creative writing is to write what you know Ms Rosen seems to know very little about DID She used it simply as a p...

    A brilliant story which tugs at your heartstringsThomas Emerson Walling is an excellent engineer and upstanding citizen, a loving father and compassionate friend at least most of the time There are days or nights , however, when his everyday life is taken over by one of three men mentally challenged, obsessive, compulsive Henry, aggressive Chuck, lewd and fashion conscious Louis or by Eleanor, a raunchy southern belle, and these four alters play havoc with his mind Thomas Walling has a mental disease, called Dissociative Identity Disorder DID , commonly known as Multiple Personality Disorder During one of his escapades into the head of Chuck something happens that would both complicate his life and save him from total isolation and heartbreak he becomes a father.Told mostly in retrospect through the eyes of his daughter, Sara, we get a picture of a loving but troubled man, who wants nothing than leading a normal life without being hounded by the crazy friends in his head It is above all the compassion and care of his sister, Corinne, and her family, his friends and psychiatrists, and above all, the deep love of Sara, which allow him to live, if not a completely normal life, then at least a life filled with people who care for him.To say that My Four Fathers Eleanor is a deeply touching story is an understatement The story is full of heart wrenching and at the same time hilariously funny moments The four alternate personalities, particularly ...

    A Bold UndertakingA bold undertaking, My Four Fathers Eleanor addresses the uniqueness of a family s life centered around Multiple Personality Disorder or Dissociative Identity Disorder as it is now called Thomas Walling has three male personalities Chuck, Louis, and Henry and one female personality Eleanor After years of being treated by Dr Pope who managed to keep these multiple personalities at bay so that Thomas could lead a normal life, Thomas is thrown into a new world when Dr Pope dies and Dr Elliot Scott takes over his treatment His new medications have a side effect the opposite of Dr Pope s his libido is kicked into high gear Enter Sara Elizabeth Walling, whose birth takes Thomas and the friends in his head down a path filled with new challenges and rewards he never imagined.Being told from the viewpoint of Thomas Walling s daughter, Sara, is a reasonable choice by Autumn Rosen, the writer Unfortunately, the story initially slips into a recounting of events rather than drawing the reader into the story to experience it first hand until you are much further into the story I applaud the concept for her story, and I believe that substantive editing would bring this book to the level her story demands and to the level which it has the potential to reach Despite the issues I just mentioned, the story Rosen seeks to share is heartwarming The charac...

    This is a story of a man with Multiple Personality Disorder, seen through the eyes of his daughter.It was a bitter sweet tale It made me laugh out loud in places and it was sad in others It focussed on the life of this man who shared his head with four other people It also focussed on the impact his illness had on the people around him I followed each character closely and by the end it seemed like they were old friends.It was also a very moving book and I am not ashamed to say I was ...

    Thomas Emerson Walling s adult life, as narrated by his daughter Sarah, will grip you from the beginning The author does a great job with bringing to life the two main characters, and sprinkles in the other entities that takes over Thomas life.From the first page through the last word the author takes you on ...

    I had really high hopes for this book, but it basically felt flat for me I found the premise of the story fascinating, and still think it had such potential Ultimately though, I felt that the story being told from the daughter s POV was so awkward at times it ruined large portions of the book for me It just wasn t credible, and often ma...

    I was fortunate to receive this books in a First Reads Giveaway I thought it was intriguing to read the story from a child s point of view about her father with DID However, I found it confusing to switch between first and third person and I wish the author had chosen one point of view The beginning may seem a little slow and awkward, but stick with it The story gets better and you grow attached to the characters I really loved the ending of the book and despite some unbelievab...

    Tackling a huge topic, but done so well, with tenderness, humanity and at times humour Three Men and a Baby, move over and inject a bit of black comedy to the mix Take a look at the publisher s blog
