Everybody Matters; Mary Robinson

Everybody Matters: My Life Giving VoiceEverybody Matters: My Life Giving Voice by Mary Robinson
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This was a DNF not because it was poorly written, or that the life of Mary Robinson doesn't matter, but because I just wasn't engaged by this memoir. That's not to say that every memoir or life's story has to be filled with humorous anecdotes or weird relatives! It's just that, while the role Ms. Robinson played in Ireland, and the one she continues to play in the human rights movement are important, it's not the most engaging of reads. The parts about Ireland in the 60s and her childhood were the most interesting parts; the rest were informative but not - as possibly could/should have been the case - inspiring.
