    I received an ARC of The Girl Factory through the Goodreads Giveaways program The Girl Factory details the life of Karen Dietrich as she maneuvers her way through various friendships and a complicated mother daughter bond Although, Karen is a precocious child and highly intelligent, she struggles after elementary school with building and maintaining relationships Karen also seems to look for validation from others and seeks out friends who are at times a bad influence When a long buried family secret is revealed in chapter 25 all the pieces come together and the reader can see the cause of much of the author s behavior The Girl Factory was a dark and powerfully written memoir w...

    I enjoyed reading The Girl Factory through Kindle I finished it in 4 evenings, putting my homework aside because I kept wanting to return to the book I like the cultural references, which those of us born in the mid to late 70s will all relate to I also like the smooth and calm tone of the words and sentences The growing pains and nuances of the girl childhood experience brought to life in the book, though each of us have a unique load of discomforts and joys, create a mirror for readers to s...

    Could you write the story of your life Your REAL life Not moralized Not white washed Frank Unflinching Could you do it Could you write the story without cutting out the dark things that you felt and thought and did Could you do it and not hold back This is what Karen Dietrich does in her memoir The Girl Factory Set in Connellsville, PA from 1985 through the late 90s, this book is an exquisite description of how girls often become who they become as women Karen is the youngest of three sisters and has a prickly relationship with her mother and father Her parents work at Anchor, a plant that made glass bottles and was true to its name serving as a financial anchor in this small town Karen worries about everything and has developed obsessive compulsive tendencies to attempt to control her world When a man goes to the Anchor plant and kills four supervisors before taking his own life, Karen s world is forever changed Though her parents weren t there when it happened and the incident really isn t much than a blip in the storyline, reflecting on this incident triggers something in Karen She begins to put together the pieces ...

    I have a book review for you just a warning this is NOT a good review This is My very first time giving a one star review, I believed that if you can write and publish a book then you deserve at least 3 stars Well not this book I grew up in the area that the Author writes about I went to the same Jr, and Sr, High I honestly thought this book was going to be about the aftermath of one of the Most horrific shootings to happen where I grew up. Its Not at all. Oh she does pepper the story with what took place that day in 1985, but you really learn nothing about the aftermath What we learn is that Karen is from a what would be considered in Connellsville a well to do family Both Parents working at the factory Nice House, built in pool That was RARE ,Ms Dietrich Contradicts herself many many times. she says her mother doesn t like to be around children. but then writes about her and her sister sleeping with their mother when their father works nights, She portrays her Mother as a Cold , unfeeling Mother, But then her Mother tells her shes perfec...

    Gave this novel about 40 pages, but I just couldn t concentrate, because I could never figure out what STORY she was telling Dietrich s admittedly lovely descriptions jump all over the place, and while that may be the character s personality and or way of narrating, ...

    As a little girl in Connellsville, Pennsylvania, Karen grew up in a middle class home, the younger daughter of two people who worked in the Anchor glass making plant nearby And in 1985, the year she was 8, a man shot and killed four Anchor supervisors before turning the gun on himself That event marked and scarred everyone in the town, including Karen and her family.Or at least that s the way the book is marketed In reality, there s not a whole lot about the shooting and even less about the aftermath I don t really mind, however, as Ms Dietrich s own memoirs are quite interesting on their own But the false marketing, as it were, is somewhat irritating.That said, this book is, in a way, quite sad Dietrich is very in tune with her younger self, and is very capable of letting her younger self s voice shine through, which can be difficult for an adult far removed in years to do She is very sexually precocious in some ways, which can be disturbing to read about, but it is understandable, given the medical report she finds as a teen Her relationship with her mother is just sad her mother is so cold and so unreachable, much preferring to clean and to doll herself up, than to give her girls the attention they need The way in which she always wanted to make their family into an u...

    Karen did grow up in privilege by most standards Connellsville was working class, factory, coal mines and retail People tried to provide everything that was necessary and some of the luxuries for their family It was 1952 when we got our first television and we still had a party phone line, but we did have a phone I had left by the 80 s, and came to Texas My Aunt was still living and I visited in 1984 Things had really changed Most of downtown was empty of stores or any kind of income producing business Karen s parents made a good living and provided well for her and her sisters And yet, they were very troubled and unhappy because of dark secrets that no one could or would talk about I get the impression that Karen and Linda were left to themselves on many occasions just at the time when they needed supervision most Karen does come off whiney and un appreciative She does need to tell her readers how very smart she is and how freely she explor...

    Dietrich details her experience growing up in Pennsylvania in a factory town with parents who are lifelong Anchor Glass Factory employees I m not a prude, but I was a little disturbed by the early obsession the author has with sexuality and her body in the memior Of course, the clues are there for anyone with some common sense to see that this obsession was one born of unusual events and is not normal in one so young Sadly, the explantation for Dietrich s behavior comes to light very late in the memoir, and little is done to evaluate the author s development after the discovery In fact, I would argue that very little change happens in light of this revelation and that was somewhat of a disappointment A child of lifelong factory workers myself, I did feel the representation of the humdrum life was quite acccurate, although this family seemed to be a bit well to do than my own Perhaps identifying with...

    I m going to start out this review with a disclaimer the author of this book was my college room mate during my senior year, her junior year Having said that and growing up in Pittsburgh , I think I had a different perspective on the book than the average reader I d be reading, and there d be a mention of a favorite stuffed animal, and I d remember it in our dorm room Or there d be a mention of a favorite radio station, which was the same station I had listened to as a child So those references, while jarring at first, made me smile And feel nostalgic And it was a very odd feeling while reading, because I had seen pictures of the author when she was young, and I remember her mothernormally when I read I conjure up my own ideas of what people and places look like, but I didn t need to here, because I already KNEW.That s not to say that other folks who DON T know the author won t enjoy this book Karen s writing is very lyrical and haunting, and the story stick...

    Wow This young lady has grown into a certified word nerd, like me She says I like words with than one meaning Petrified is an adjective that can mean converted into a stony substance or frightened so as unable to think or move But there is a figurative meaning too deprived of vitality or the capacity to change We are all petrified in our own ways We will all end up as fossils, our shapes eventually pressed into the ground and hardened I am amazed at the eloquent way she spins a tale that was not very easy to tell I was definitely along for the ride I couldn t put this book down I have spent nearly fifteen years working in the factory that she speaks of and I grew up next door to it My church is even mentioned in the book I felt a connection not only because of the local references but because of the fact that we are human and have had many of the sam...
