Articulate & well written Damien Echols takes us through his difficult experience. Somehow he kept hope alive through it all. "Hope is the thing with feathers" as Emily Dickinson said. It is a fragile thing that somehow stays alive despite the storms of life. I don't know how he kept hope alive. I don't think I could of, I really don't. That feathered bird would have been stomped out in the first year. If Damien writes another book, I'm reading it.
When the lawyer asked "will this make Lorri Davis leave me alone?" I cheered. Yea Lorri!
I really liked this book. It is one of my Koontz favorites not because of the storyline as much as it scared the heck out of me! I had a cold and so had to sleep in the guest room where I listened to this audio book late into the night. Being alone, on NyQuil and listening to this was a mistake. I had to jump up to turn on the lights and then had to laugh at myself. There are certainly a lot of parts in this book that are too hard to listen to sitting or laying down. Pacing back and fourth while chewing on my nails is how I listened to it. Sick or not this book had my blood thumping through my veins.
This book was spot on. Great presentation, great advice and on the mark. I am now going to buy this author's other audio book.
The first few minutes with the CEO
I wish the ending would have been different it caught me by surprise and I felt abruptly cut off. Yet, this was a long, long tale. Guess my not wanting it to end should tell you how good it was.
It took me about 10 minutes to get use to the child's narration but then it was adorable, that adoration quickly turned to dread, pity then horror as I realized the mother's plan. I wish it would of ended a little different but not to bad, it took us full circle. The tooth sucking was disgusting ( as you will see) yet it was so like a child to do it and like most things kids put into their mouths when Mom's not around it was gross stuff.
