I read everything. I don't have much time so audible is perfect for me. My reviews will cover many genres of books. Christian to "Tween"
Yes. Although I use print and audio, the novel was better with the audio.
The whole book is unforgettable.
A movie would be great but I'm sure it would be hard to make.
Great book for young adults & teens too. It's a learning experience.
I love a good book, but never have time to sit and read. Audible is wonderful for people like me. Even though my kids think I am a nerd for always having my headphones on, someday they will wish their college books were on audible!
I just can't imagine anyone every doing that to a child, so it was hard to listen to.
Description the author puts into almost every part of the book
Yes he did...but I would have liked to have heard it in a younger voice since the book is about a young boy.
Tearful and heart-wrenching
How he overcome all the abuse to sit down and write his story in such graphic detail.
Voice inflections truly relayed to the reader the few ups and mostly downs of this young boy's life.
It's hard to pick any one moment since this child's life had so many moments of degradation. The one that does come to mind, though, is when his mother forced him to eat his baby brother's feces.
I wish it would have given the reader a brief history of what happened to the rest of Dave Pelzer's family -- his brothers and most of all -- his parents.
Him fighting to survive.
Very emotional book but worth listening to. Would make a very good movie.
Audio is more intense without being sensationalized
There is a second book in David Pelzers saga and both are worth reading. These are books that cannot be equaled.
This story would defy being made into a film. The horror of it could not be duplicated without becoming a sensationalized film as only Hollywood can do. If it were to be filmed, I would never watch it. It only in real life and the spoken word that the story is alive.
David Pelzer is a monument to the strength of the human spirit.
There were many times during this book I would gasp out loud while listening. The abuse describes in this book is not for the feint of heart, but is very well told. The narrator has a nice clear voice.
