  • if you follow up on him and his brothers books you'll believe it... just google him

    i read his books years ago and i was crying the entire time. i don't think this is fiction, this is a story of a broken man who's sharing his horrible life in the hands of a woman that had really really big issues.

  • Yes I think it's true. His story is heart wrenching. Imagining a mother torturing her child like that makes me cry. I read all his books and can do nothing but praise that man for turning out to be a decent man.

  • what's sad is that many many children go or had to go trough such things but never gotten a chance to speak about it.
    how can a mother treat her own child like that??? i think the most horrific scene i still have in my head thinking of him is the one where she made him drink whatever it is was in the kichten. what was it again, some cleaning stuff i think? refresh my memory if you've been to that part already
