    I loved this book growing up read it over and over and then lost it Still trying to get my hands on this book Would love to read it as an adult Still remember how they reversed the locks on the car doors and took the kids shoe shopping one at a time all the birthdays were celebrated with one big party Large family hysterics Just cracked me up a memoir of survival and love

    This was a fast and funny read which was just what I needed after Doctor ZhivagoThe good This was a hilarious book about the difficulties of having a large family It was told from the point of view of the father and it was hilarious I felt like it could have been longer and included misadventures for the family but I did find the book to be a fantastically funny adventureThe bad I got frustrated every time Tom or Pat would pray for the pope to come to a practical decision on the pill Right and wrong isn't always practical and even though I doubt very much it was intended that way the fact that the timing of the prayers always happened as chaos was erupting almost seems to imply that they would have liked less children which makes it sound like they are wishing away some of their children Again I doubt that it was intended that way but I still found these prayers to be frustrating Also we don't find out what happened in the end The book is subtitled How Pat and Tom Buck raised 11 children and survived Surely if they'd had another baby that would have found its way into the subtitle? There is also a picture of the family on the cover flap and there are eleven children the youngest Adrian I assume appears to be between the ages of 3 5 so if they had had another child at the end of the book then the child would likely have appeared in this picture I feel this book could use a seuel and that it could have some of the kids' points of view as well as the father'sThe ugly Although it might appear to the contrary it is not intended to make a case for the canonization of Margaret Sanger Okay this book was published in 1967 and Roe v Wade legalized abortion in 1973 so the author couldn't have known what a plague Sanger's organization would be on society but even in jest 'canonization of Margaret Sanger' is not a phrase that I have ever wanted to hear or see or even contemplate anywhere ever And even now Margaret Sanger's racist ideas and arguments for eugenics and forced sterilization are well hidden from the public so how could they have known that Sanger was a sick racist who wanted to eliminate minorities only one year after the woman's death But I still never wanted to see or hear those words strung together in that manner I wish that the book could be re released along with a seuel with those words eliminated from the introduction so that people can enjoy this book again and without having to have the idea of Margaret Sanger being anywhere within one hundred thousand miles of canonization put in their head
