Life Stories is a richly innovative study, packed with insights into the way we use stories to create and maintain an identity over time. Series: Oxford Studies in Sociolinguistics.

Life Stories is a richly innovative study, packed with insights into the way we use stories to create and maintain an identity over time. the book contains much that will interest a wide variety of readers, from linguists, narratologists, and literary theorists, to sudents of autobiography and folklore. An imaginative, stylishly written and boldly interdisciplinary study, Life Stories focuses our attention on a hitherto unexplored mode of narrative discourse, throwing new light on the interconnections between self and story.

I read this book during my graduate studies in Anthropology, and what Linde reveals has stayed with me in the years since. Linde's argument is that most Westerners-exposed to the bible, folktales, novels, and movies from their earliest lives-compose their own life story within their heads. Linde's most interesting discovery is that this life story changes over time.

The life story is a particularly rich and important area for study, because it represents a crossroads of linguistic structure and social practice. Linde's analysis is of importance to linguistics, as well as having broader implications for anthropology, psychology, and sociology. All adult speakers in Western cultures have life stories argues Charlotte Linde, and the ways in which these life stories are formed and exchanged with others have a powerful effect on all of us. Life stories express our sense of self, who we are and how we got that way. According to Linde, we also use these stories to show that our lives can be understood as coherent, and to assert or negotiate group membership.

The preparation period consists of the creation of a nonequilibrium state and, possibly, of the frequency labeling in 2-D experiments. Usually, the preparation period should be designed in such a way that in the created nonequilibrium state, the population differences or coherences under consideration deviate as much as possible from the equilibrium values. During the relaxation period, the coherences or populations evolve toward an equilibrium condition.

Linde claims such stories serve a number of psychological and social purposes, including the development and expression of a sense of self and the solidification and definition of relationships and group memberships. She focuses on different coherence systems, including 'common sense' and its peculiarly American nature

All adult speakers in Western cultures have life stories argues Charlotte Linde, and the ways in which these life stories are formed and exchanged with others have a powerful effect on all of us. Life stories express our sense of self, who we are and how we got that way. According to Linde, we also use these stories to show that our lives can be understood as coherent, and to assert or negotiate group membership. These life stories take part in the highest level of social constructions, since they are built on cultural assumptions about what is expected in a life, what the norms for a successful life are, and what common or special belief systems are necessary to establish coherence. The life story, illuminated by this engrossing study, is a form of everyday discourse which has not previously been precisely defined or studied. It is an oral, discontinuous unit, consisting of stories which are retold in a variety of forms over a long period of time, and which may be revised and changed as the speaker comes to drop old meanings and add new ones to parts of the life story. The life story is a particularly rich and important area for study, because it represents a crossroads of linguistic structure and social practice. Linde's analysis is of importance to linguistics, as well as having broader implications for anthropology, psychology, and sociology.

This book helped me pass my Narrative class with an A grade. Also, the writing was intelligent and thoughtful.

I read this book as part of graduate school coursework and the message has stayed with me over the years.

Linde demonstrates through her sociolinguistic research that humans retell our life stories over and over again, constructing these stories in response to cultural and psychological stimuli. Additionally, the way we recall life events changes over time. The way we tell the story of how we got a job, for example, will change after five years based on subsequent events, belief systems we've adopted, and so on. Not only is this information useful to know for sociologists, anthropologists, historians, and psychologists (probably her main audience), but can impact the way you understand and interact with your friends and family, too.

The writing is technical and repetitive, using an academic style. However, for readers who are aware of this in advance and prepared for it, the discussions of memory and meaning in Life Stories is worthwhile.

This book is obviously not for the average reader. I read it for a psychological anthropology book review and found myself regretting every moment of it. First of all, Linde tries to give to many examples and restates the same thing over and over. When I finished chapter 8 and read the conclusion which was four pages I was a little upset. The whole book was a waste of time, by just reading the conclusion the few points that were made are clearly stated there without the non-sense and all the repetition. INSOMNIACS this is a must buy for you it put me to sleep about 7-8 times. Besides that avoid this book if at all possible. You can thank me for the sacrafice I made for you.
