Call Me Anne by Anne Heche
I have I have been on a sort of autobiography and memoir kick lately. And this was a great progression from the last book I finished which was a thriller. Sometimes you just have to take a break from the spooky and enjoy the journey into someone’s life. while I wish the author was still alive, it is refreshing to read a book that is so completely open and honest. The authors timely death last year left a void and a hole in her family, friends and fans alike. She had a difficult life and in my opinion was never really able to be truly herself. She was raised in a dysfunctional abusive household she grew up religious and the Bible was the only book on the bookshelves allowed. That would be a sad existence for anyone who knew she was different from the very beginning.
I we’ll say that if she hadn’t had a chance performance in a school play to have the doors open for her to get some freedom and identity I think her life would have been much more different. Her awards and accolades were beautiful add well deserved it’s just a shame she couldn’t live the life that she wanted. I remember her being with Ellen back in the day and wishing that she could truly be who she wanted not just for her but for both of them.
As an avid reader, I always try to read a book with an open mind. This was part sad part inspirational and a triumph for her. I would recommend this to anyone who loves to learn about other people’s lives and has an open mind that doesn’t judge even their books.
Overall, I would give this four stars and it the only reason it isn’t five is because I wish it was a little longer. I love that this story broke the chains that were around her life and lifestyle.
