Yes. I've followed Damien Echols's story for many years; finally hearing what it was like for him in his own voice was a humbling and amazing experience.
Damien Echols has a very distinct accent and manner of speech. Getting to hear him read his own words made the story all the more real and moving.
Damien's story is an amazing one. He is completely open in this book and completely lets the readers into his life in a very brave way. I found myself laughing and smiling as I listened to the book and even tearing up at points. No matter if you have heard of his story before or not, this book would be well worth a listen.
John C. Reilly did a fantastic job narrating this book. He managed to read in "voices" for each of the characters without making it sound overdone or silly. He made them real in a way that I would not have gotten from reading this book.
I have not, but would love to listen to more.
This book is a classic and well worth the read, but even better is a great listen. This is it.
