Yup, I read it; can't remember when but let's say more than two decades ago, I reckon.

Did you enjoy it?

It's been so long since I read it, but remember that it was one of the first on the subject of multiple personalities. I think it lead me to read other books in this genre.

I think you'll find it fascinating, but not light reading.

I read it several times- very interesting, although Dr Cornelia Wilbur was a bit controversial- some therapists questioned her diagnosis. The movie with Sally Field (from the 70's she was very young) was also good; the girl had a very sad childhood.

An absolutely wonderful book but very hard to read. It's one of the only books I've ever been able to really relate to.

I read it a very long time ago. I think I read it for a speech class in high school in which we had to give a speech on book we had read. I have no idea why I chose that book, because it is certainly not an easy read. Some parts of it are a little disturbing, but it is also very interesting.

I read it many, many years ago. I really liked it at the time. I even enjoyed the movie ( I never like the movies from books). Yes, it can be disturbing but it's interesting and well written. At least that's what I remember.

I remember reading it and being fascinated by it. I didn't like the movie nearly as much.
I just looked on Google, I cannot believe that it was written in 1973. Call me O-L-D!
