It was a pleasure to hear Damien read this himself. I could not put it down. I completed it in one day. He effortlessly goes back and forth from his unique (to most) childhood and what it was like for him in prison. You will be so impressed w his writing style. Hard to describe b/c this is like nothing else you will read. Just take a chance. Enjoy.
Probably the fact that the author narrated the book.
laugh and cry. After he was put in such an awful situation, he still made the most of his time there.
Very insightful book... I'm glad he told his story
Yes. Amazing story and beautiful writing. What a mind!
Damien's commitment to his spiritual growth.
His accent and his honesty.
This was a great listen and I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to learn more about the West Memphis 3 and see the documentaries produced about this case.
My only complaint about the performance is that Damien's voice is a little monotonous, and his pronunciation of the words "huge" and "human" got on my nerves. "Yooman" for example.
That said, considering he spent most of his adult life in prison, and wasn't a good student in high school, he is an excellent writer with a gift for words.
Damien Nichols is an eloquent writer, his story telling is poetic. He shares the intimate details of a life so full of tragedy it becomes even more remarkable that he not only survives but through it all transforms into an introspective, thoughtful and spiritual human being,
Leaning about the inhuman confinement practices of the US prison system and the long term impact on the inmates.
A transformative story about the human spirits ability to thrive and evolve in spite of a broken and corrupt judicial system that systematically destroys the prisoner through its inhuman practices.
The fact that the west Memphis three are free. I feel bad at times for the state of Arkansas to see what type of prosecutors and judges they have. Its a huge discredit to the whole judicial system on the state.
The Devils Knot
Im not sure I have a favorite. The entire story is good and I hope nothing but the best for the west Memphis 3
The Judicial idiots in Arkansas!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How come the prosecuting attorney, Police officers, the Judge isn't behind bars?????
