I don't usually read books that are recommended, but this time I did, and I'm so glad I did.
On the same level as The Help. One of those special books you never forget.
You really, really need to be an adult in both mind and years to listen to this story through to the end and not fling it aside. If you are deeply religious you will no doubt be horrified but if you can get past that and really listen to the message this book is trying to tell you, you may have an awakening.
This book is designed to shock….read it if you dare!
This book opened my mind to some of the joys and heartache of having an autistic child but it was written in such a way, and with such wonderful humour, that I didnt know wether to laugh or cry.The verbal wit of this author is both amazing and brilliant and her way of telling a tale makes you feel that the story is a bio. I believed every word.
He turns the book into realism.
I am so glad I found James Frey, author. His style of writing in both his first bio, A Million Little Pieces, and now this followup is ingenious. I have never read another author with this style and it certainly kept me wanting more and more. In fact I listened until 2am so I could hear the ending…and now Im sad Ive finished the book.
Wether people believe these two stories to be true or not, James Frey kept me enthralled and Ill certainly read the next bio if he writes one.
Near the top
All of it
I have never listened to a book quite like this before. I thought I had purchased a fiction book..it turned out to be 100% true! The style in which this book was written was so powerful it almost felt like I was in James Frey's skin. It was the most moving and incredible story of a man digging himself into the deepest depths and then finding the courage to literally pull himself back into the light.
The friends he made along the way will surprise you and perhaps make you realise that no matter how degraded a person has become, that nine times out of ten, there is still a good person willing to help his fellow man inside.
Some people may find this a little bit hard to get into the story, but do persevere. I promise you, you will listen to one of the most thought provoking storie in a long time.
I really can't wait for the next book. I believe there is going to be a fourth book and I wish it was here NOW!
better than most
Fast and exciting adventure. Reading the 3 rd book now. I hope there will be a fourth book.
Fast paced, good script.
This is a series so dont expect the usual ending where a story is complete. The author leaves you wanting more and to get more you buy the next book.
I have now read the 3 books and enjoyed every minute of each book. I hope there will be more.
I didn't like the narrator as her voice seemed rather sibilant and slurry. An English narrator would have been better. Her voice somewhat spoilt the story.
I really enjoyed this story especially as it was about my homeland. It was historically correct and that was an added bonus. The story was exciting and I'd gladly read another book if it was serialised.
Overall I enjoyed this story, but felt it meandered on a bit too much. It could make a great film.
Yes. But I would prefer to have another story of a similar nature from Tracy Deebs. She really seems to know what she is writing about and that is what makes it so believable.
This is a story that should make you think. While it is fast moving and exciting it had a lesson to teach. Would it really be possible for one person to hold so much power in his hands??
