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 know its a good book when I scour the web looking for anything I can about the main characters. This father was a sociopath of the worst kind. I think the author was too easy on the wife but I do live in a different part of the world and have had many things that women did not. Still, how could she let him do all those things to the kids while they were growing up? And the main character, she must really be something to have survived that. I send her and her family all of my prayers and well wishes.
Loved this book. Great plot twists. Great action. What a ride. I am now going to listen to every book this author has on Audible. I hope my heart can take it.
It started off a little slow but wow what an ending! I drove six hours and stayed in the car an extra twenty minutes just to hear the ending.
What a ride!
The plot made you yell at, cheer for and talk to the character as in, "Don't do it, do it, don't do it, why did you do that? My six hour drive sped along. I loved the book.
The main character
Yes, but mostly anticipate.
Don't miss out on this.
Book was kind of boring in that it was all based on research. I wanted a lot more stories. The stories that were given were around 45 seconds to a few minutes long. I just thought it was something other than what it was. Probably a good listen for those who want the numbers.
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.
