    One thought on “Beyond Reason”

    1. Margaret Trudeau is not known for living a cautious life She blazed onto the national stage in 1971 as the ravishing 22 year old bride of the 51 year old Canadian Prime Minister Their unlikely union, which produced three sons, ended in 1977 amid lurid headlines that Pierre Trudeau s erratic wife had gone off to photograph The Rolling Stones In her 1979 autobiography, she fills in the details of her encounters with The Rolling Stones and other celebrities, her long tunnel of darkness experienced [...]

    2. 2.5I will try to stay away from the politics of it all and focus on the writing there was a lot of repetition obviously, there were things she wanted to emphasize, but it came off as rambling also, yes, I wanted to read about the stuff I have heard about her over the years barely anything was included of that nature the whole thing read like a court defense.

    3. I was surprised that this book has so few reviews, but maybe I m assuming that because someone is famous in Canada they must be famous elsewhere I mean, Margaret Trudeau was the subject of at least one Saturday Night Live joke, so even non Canadians have heard of her, right Well, whatever the first book of memoirs yes, she wrote than one by the ex wife of our most famous prime minister should be considered an important historical document Margaret Trudeau nee Sinclair was a typical child of the [...]

    4. I found this book at a thrift shop It seems to have been written just as Margaret Trudeau left the public eye It gave me a fascinating glimpse into the life of a person who is in the public eye, eg all the safety concerns and security measures taken to keep Margaret safe, as the Prime Minister s wife She said how her itinerary was detailed down to the minute, indicating where she was supposed to be, every minute of the day, and how she started to rebel against it after awhile I read it around th [...]

    5. My mom dropped this off at my house quite a while back It was from my grandmother s collection, which my mom has slowly been reading through and passing on I thought you might like this I didn t really think too much about it at the time, but one night in the fall I picked it up while I had a touch of insomnia and it absorbed me right away For whatever reason, I really like Margaret s voice in this book I immersed myself in her life and circumstances and flew through this read really quickly Thi [...]

    6. I read her current book first, and then found this old paperback from 25 years ago through some effort Really fascinating to read memoirs by the same person half a lifetime apart I still really like her and her writing Interesting how she brushes over her mental illness at the time, but fully understands what happened later in life Many of the same stories were told with different details highlighted.

    7. I had started reading this before the current Prime Minister came into office Once he had, I wanted to finish it right away, so I could move on to later memoirs This first person narrative is written with fresh wounds, and a great deal of humility It made me want to look up interviews with the 22 y.o First Lady, who was Diana before Diana was cool She may have played The Doll s House on those 3 little boys, but at the end of this quick read, you might sympathize.

    8. Read this one after watching a mini series on TV I didn t realize what role she played in Canadian politics, saw her as of a flake or liability Her ideas 30 years later don t seem so strange any like wanting Canadian flowers planted in the gardens at 24 Sussex Drive, giving Canadian gifts It was worth the read.
