The violence was clear and if you need details you might be a bit sardistic That some parts are inconsistent and a bit confusing is true, but since it is based on her experiences and memory, it is obvious why we don't get to know everything. I would also have liked to learn more about the siblings, but it is written from her perspective, so I accept that.
What I cannot respect are people writing comments on how ungrateful she was and that her mother simply was too stressed and didn't know what to do? Do people who write those things hit their children themselves?
Telling your child that it should not breathe and that it is ugly has nothing to do with 'Not knowing what to do'. Abandoning the child at the Age of 14, without electricity and demanding Rent, is nothing a child should be grateful for.
My criticism is not on the book itself. I simply wonder why C so rarely asked for help.
One could say, she was intimidated by her mother and the failure of her first attempt to get help. I still think she should have tried harder.
Throughout her career she has polarised opinion, even according to her friend and barrister Linda Strudwick, who gave evidence on her behalf. Strudwick admitted some found her "brash" and "dismissive".
Briscoe met Huhne and his then wife Pryce as neighbours in the private Clapham crescent in south London when she moved into her Georgian flat in with her son and daughter by a solicitor she met in her 20s.
Arlidge, then 76, left her in for a year-old trainee barrister, and the same year Huhne walked out on Pryce for his PR adviser Carina Trimingham. In the witness box, Briscoe maintained Pryce had told her, back in , that Huhne had asked her to take three speeding points.
It was for this reason that she became a prosecution witness in their case. And what a witness.

As a recorder and barrister, the CPS regarded her as "unimpeachable". Indeed, her arrest fundamentally changed the complexion of the case, leaving the prosecution without the independent and crucial witness they believed they had in her. She told the jury she "counselled and supported" Pryce, but never offered her legal advice in dealing with the media. But, in evidence at Pryce's trial, which can only now be reported, the economist offered a very different picture.
Pryce had "no recollection" of that conversation. She was "really shocked" when she heard about it during a police interview. She had turned to Briscoe for legal advice to sit in on meetings with the Mail on Sunday and check contracts, she said.
But Briscoe was working "behind my back" to "her own agenda" in giving details to the press and police — including private and embarrassing texts between Huhne and their youngest son, Peter. Outlining the case against Briscoe, prosecutor Bobbie Cheema QC referred to the speeding points as "a tiny snowball of deception [which] caused a mighty avalanche many years later".
Huhne and Pryce have both served prison sentences as a result of the speeding points scandal. Now Briscoe is the latest victim — her legal career utterly destroyed.I was fascinated by how she managed her life and became what she is now.
