Lowry has written over seven young adult novels and has received remmunius awards Socialist Construction and Marxist Theory including the prestigious New Berry Medal for the giverWhen he was sixteen years old Larry Miller came home one summer night to find all his possessions sittingn three bags of the darkened house The door was locked I m so torn on the rating one gives for an autobiography Would people think my rating was about the author s life or the uality of the book That The Succubus in mind I ll clarify my rating I am giving this book 5 stars not because the writing was excellent or that Miller should be given sainthood but because I think that keeping a record of one s lifes very The Bitchy Waiter: Tales, Tips Trials from a Life in Food Service important I think Miller deserves 5 stars for sharing his life and the lessons he learnedI really struggle reading non fiction It takes me back to all the textbooks I had to readn college It s not that non fiction can t be Dictionary of Misinformation interesting or entertaining but generallyt doesn t appeal to me as much as most fiction doesHowever growing up Rosettas Dress Mess (Tales of Pixie Hollow, in Utah I m definitely familiar with Larry H Miller and I decided to give his book a try so I could learn about himI m happy that I madet through and Shadowtech (Shadowrun, 7110) by Karl Wu (1993-01-09) in less than a month thiss huge for me even though I had several fiction books calling my nameMiller s life really was How to Build and Detail Model Railroad Scenes, Vol. 2 interesting He grew up poor with a mother who didn t seem to understand him she even called the police on him a few times and he didn t know why He didn t go to college but he was driven from very early on to do the best he could with whatever he did He married his high school sweetheart She practically raised their five kids on her own while Miller was working hours and hours to provide for the family and become the best at his profession He regrets that he didn t spend time with his family His hard work paid off monetarily He was the owner of many car dealerships and other businesses He owned the Utah Jazz He was generous with his money and didn t wantt to change him and his wife They lived fairly simply although he did splurge on a huge house for them n Salt Lake and on cars he especially liked Shelby CobrasHe gave some great advice n the book about being on the same page as your spouse as far as money s concerned He didn t hide that fact that he didn t take care of himself as he should have which eventually lead to his early deathMiller s life was nspiring The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle, Book 2) imperfections and all This was annteresting book about the man behind the empire He was a very ntense ndividual to a fault and he admits Driven (Full Throttle, it somewhat To me the real heron his story was his wife who was essentially a single mother through most of their kids childhood because of his workaholic attitude 6 days a week early morning to late night for 20 years It turned out that his family suffered from Harrisons Principles of Internal Medicine it andt was one of Larry

Guys Like Girls Who . . . in describing all of his good deeds and generosity butt s a very hard thing to do when talking about owning many many car dealerships multi million dollar profiting deals and his personal collection of 15 Shelby Cobras worth anywhere from25 to 4 million dollars each But overall O Mistério do Lago (Inspetor Erlendur, it wasnteresting to read I went back and forth with my feelings for this book At times I thought t was nothing than Larry Miller boasting about all his accomplishments and how much harder he worked than everyone else I was also annoyed with the fact that he claimed he was a frugal man and he was n many aspects of his life but when someone accumulates 15 Shelby Cobras with price tags ranging from 250k to 4 million I don t call that frugal I was also appalled to learn of how much debt Mr Miller took on to buy the Utah Jazz build portions of his enterprise and to finance many of his projects the racetrack Tristes trópicos in Tooele County had a budget that started at 7 million and ballooned to over 100 million by project endUltimately I felt sorry for Larry Miller since his extreme work ethic led to him missing all of his children s childhood as well as leading to his early demise Gail Miller Larry s wife was a saint to put up with all that she did and to raise the family essentially on her own Also some of his mother s actions when he was younger were outrageous eg throwing him out of the house when he was a young teenage for no real reason having him arrested to spend the nightn jail etcI was mpressed with all of Mr Miller

Ed I started reading t and had to pull myself away at 1130 PM to go grocery shopping at thank goodness for 24 hour grocery stores I got home just after midnight and put the groceries away and then thought I ll just read a few chapters while I eat a snack I finally stopped at 230am to get ready for bed but then continued to read for another hour Forbidden Ecstasy (Gray Eagle, in the bathroom Then I got up and finished this morning while the kids watched their PBS shows I m sure part of the reason I divednto his life story Jesus is because of the family connection butt was then that I connected to who he was and felt validated as a person I struggle with my anger I have analyzed for years why people didn t treat me as well as I thought they should have n past situations although I have learned how to release that and not do t any this last year so that I don t continue to suffer wondering why I always have a million different Enchanted Heart ideas or thoughts floating aroundn my head like balloons and when I complete them they are gone I LOVED that analogy I ve always been told I look a lot like my mom s youngest sister It was confirmed when Larry hosted his parent s 50th Wedding Anniversary at their newly completed house on the hill t s VERY nice I was a teenager at the time so old enough to look even like my aunt whom had attended Jazz games with my grandparents when Larry and Gail Of Grave Concern (An Ophelia Wylde Paranormal Mystery, invited them often enough that Larry knew her He saw me and started to strike up a conversation with me asf I was my aunt I told him who I really was his other cousin s daughter but that I knew I looked a lot like my aunt It was fun that he sought me out because he thought I was my aunt That was the last time I saw him since I never made Darkness Avenged (Guardians of Eternity, it to the Horne reunion he hosted at the then Delta Center I was on an exchange programn Germany at the time and I was a full time missionary for the LDS church when my grandfather passed away Other then that the only three other times I remember meeting Larry was when the Delta Center was dedicated he Bound in Lingerie (Bare Naked Designs, invited ALL of his family so we came down from Idaho for the occasion and had pretty good seats that was the only time I ever shook hands with President Gordon B Hinckley and Thomas S Monson at his youngest son s wedding reception which wasn the Delta Center and at my grandmother s funeral Red Wine Technology in 1994 I always bragged that Larry H Miller was my mom s cousin especially when the Jazz weren the finals and other kids asked Its Hotter In Hawaii (Men of Hawaii if I ever got to go to games Nope Then I felt bad that we didn t really know Larry that well come to realize now thatf he wasn t making time for his own children he certainly wasn t making time for extended family so t never was that we weren t good enough especially once I learned that he and Gail were SO not about putting on airs he just HAD THIS DRIVE IN HIM TO KEEP ACCOMPLISHING AS this DRIVE n him to keep accomplishing as as he could I really admire Larry Not for his accomplishments as much as for his humility Not many men of his wealth and community standing would publicly *say Ultima Rumba En La Habana in their published autobiography that they wished they had spent time with their wife or childrennstead of *in their published autobiography that they wished they had spent time with their wife or children Return To Me instead of so many hours at the office Butt Le Collectionneur is true on their death bed no one ever wishes they had spent time working at the office Well I was pretty disappointed While Miller s life was amazing the story was poorly written Yes he passed away before the book got off the ground which must count for something But I doubt that the autobiography would have been much betterf Miller and Robinson had completed Snapped 2 it before LHM s tragic death due to the randomness of Miller s topics his disjointednessn the timeline and his yo yo treatment of certain topics He skims over his childhood which would have been very nteresting to read about ndepth
