I struggled to finish listening to this memoirA Beautiful Terrible Thing A Memoir of Marriage and Betrayal by Jen Waite This audiobook narrated by the author was described as an account of this young woman s heartbreaking discovery of life destroying lies and what her life was like in the aftermath of her demolished marriage I admit I was pulled in by the dramatic words and I had the impression that something extraordinary must have occurred between this woman Jen Waite and her husband Marco I don t want to trivialize this woman s pain she was very clearly hurt angry and felt betrayed by her husband and I don t doubt that to her what occurred felt like the end of her life or at least the life she had imagined and planned for Sadly and unfortunately her story is far from uncommon Several weeks after the birth of the couple s first child a daughter Jen Waite stumbled upon an email between her husband and a woman a message which made her stomach drop and made her suspicious that her husband was having an affair This suspicion led her down a path of engaging in amateur detective work and hyper vigilance Since she possessed the passwords to Marco s social media accounts and his email she went looking for proof And when people are searching for something they usually find what they are looking forThe story of this marriage is told in moving from before the betrayal to after the betrayal and Ms Waite relates every minute detail of her failed relationship in what sound like daily diary entries the emails text messages and dozens of phone calls between her husband and a young Croatian woman he had been having an affair with even speaking with her on the night his daughter was born Ms Waite also began obsessively stalking the woman s Facebook page as well She confronts Marco with the evidence she has collected and it really is no surprise that he denies the relationship but he continues to lie to her and continues the relationship with the other woman Eventually Ms Waite who has become so emotionally distraught she cannot take care of her infant calls her parents who pick her her daughter and her belongings up and move them to Maine to her parent s home where she then holes up in her childhood bedroom with her newborn daughter wallowing in self pity for months I know I sound harsh and I don t mean to be impatient with this womanCoping with the end of her marriage and the fact she had a newborn baby to care for was extremely difficult But I couldn t rid myself of the recurrent thought that she was actually uite fortunate her parents were so supportive of her and allowed her to completely fall apart while they kept a roof over her and her daughter s head Perhaps it didn t occur to her that this scenario of a marriage ending badly plays out every day and many people do not have the luxury of retreating to their childhood bedrooms in their parents homes when life s calamities occur Many people do not have the luxury of grief or self pity as their lives and their children s lives depend on their continuing to go through the motions of life even if they don t feel like doing so It wasn t even Jen Waite s self indulgent attitude which bothered me most about this book and caused me to actually talk back to her narration The aspect of the story which continues to bother me is that she decided after researching online that is she read several articles that the explanation for her troubled marriage is that her husband Marco is a sociopath She then continues to refer to him as a sociopath throughout the book I realize that sociopath is a term which is currently very popular in our culture and many books have been written describing foolproof ways you too can diagnose everyone in your life as having anti social personality disorder I find this idea ridiculous Is Marco a sociopath I have no idea but really neither does she Yes he IS a jerk a liar and a cheat and it struck me from the beginning of the story that perhaps he was using her to obtain his green card yes he was an illegal immigrant But many many people lie and cheat Are they ALL sociopaths Probably not And the thing I found most astonishing is that Ms Waite mentioned her sociopathy theory to her therapist and the therapist readily agreed with her that marco was a sociopath I found this incredible What therapist would assign a label of sociopath to a person she had never met let alone examined At this point I can only conclude that Ms Waite wanted to sell books and she found a sensational way to do so My sympathy for her became harder to muster I AM sorry Jen Waite chose a man for her life partner who turned out to be a liar and a cheat that is a very tough life lesson and I hope she will be able to find some peace of mind as she has a daughter to raise I am wondering if down the line she will regret publishing this book because I don t think she was at all thinking about the future and how her daughter might feel about her father and about her family as a wholeI don t feel comfortable assigning any memoir less than 3 stars because I think it does take courage to share your pain and humiliation with the world I can t RATE someone s feelings At the same time I can t really say I recommend this book either unless of course you are a person who finds yourself in a similar situation Maybe then the reading this book would allow you to realize you definitely are not alone in your experiences Viata lui Ceausescu.

This memoir felt half baked to me Waite s conclusion that her ex husband is a psychopath is based on her internet searches which are recounted here in not so fascinating detail Without something definitive than that though it was hard for me to know what to think I mean he was a terrible husband there s no doubt about that but I was also baffled at Waite s own behavior specifically the way she seemed to be in the habit of snooping into his private messages from early on in their courtship It never seemed like a healthy marriage to me so I wasn t super invested in its dissolution There s also the fact that all of this happened disconcertingly recently Waite mentions her money troubles at the end and I had a nagging feeling that this book was rushed for financial reasons I think A Beautiful Terrible Thing would have benefited from a few years of introspection on Waite s part Having said all that the book definitely kept my attention and I read it in less than two days If you re just looking to gawk at a trainwreck no judgment on my part that s why I picked it up this memoir fits the bill nicely Ritual Power Healing and Community years that isn't part of the long con of lies and manipulation With a dual timeline narrative structure we see Waite's romance bud bloom and wither simultaneously making the heartbreak and disbelief even affectin.

Jen Waite × 5 Free download review ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free × Jen Waite Summary A Beautiful Terrible Thing What do you do when you discover that the person you've built your life around never existed When it could never happen to me does happen to you These are the uestions facing Jen Waite when she begins to realize that her loving husband the father of her infant daughter her best friend the love of her life fits the textbook definition of psychopath In a. This book was not what I expected and not in a good way Based on the blurb we re led to believe A Beautiful Terrible Thing will be something shocking out of the ordinary unbelievable But what we get isnone of those things Yes Waite s husband is a liar a cheater a seemingly remorseless jerk who s constantly trading in his girl for a younger modelbut guess what So are a lot of other people As sad and hurtful as those behaviors are they are not that extraordinary And while I get that this experience was traumatic and painful for Waite I m not sure it warrants publishing a memoirMuch of the book reads like diary entries of Waite chronicling the rise and fall of her relationship and as you d expect from a dear diary entry it s flowery and not particularly well written and ultimately a bit adolescent the incessant use of babe and baby as a term of endearment and the actual printing of the phrase bro code in a serious usage as two glaring examples Then we follow her down the rabbit hole of trying to figure out WHY WHY WHY everything happened and are treated to scenes of her researching sociopathy on internet message boards and Wikipedia these sources aren t reliable enough to be used for a school paper let alone an actual published book But wait Lest we think the entire premise of this book was based on Waite amateurly diagnosing her husband with an actual personality disorder thanks to the internet she magically finds validation in a real live therapist I find it INCREDIBLY hard to believe that a therapist would provide even a guess at a diagnosis for someone they ve never even spoken to and that said therapist would use that as the focus for Waite s visits In a nutshell unless you like rubbernecking at car accidents or find fascination in other people s suffering skip this one There s no big reveal no revelation nothing even really educational in this memoir except for the reminder that rose colored glasses are never the best lenses through which to view your world
