1.0 out of 5 stars Ghastly! 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a ghastly book.
Of course the horrible abuse that the author suffered as a child was ghastly, and she would appear to have got a good balance right in recounting that part between sensationalism and over-revolting her readers, while as the same time conveying the vile nature of it and her feelings at the time.
I'm afraid that that is the only compliment I can pay to this book. It is very badly written, with the vocabulary and style of a young teenager blogging to her friends. (Well, even younger, we have pages and pages of boring description of and feelings about appearing around the age of 6 years old in school sports day and a stage production there.)
Grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, spelling are appalling. Full stops have attached themselves to the beginnings of following sentences rather than serving to end the previous ones, commas are mis- and over-used, apostrophes are clearly not understood, and on spelling - well, she (mis)uses the word 'literally' and spells it 'literarily', a completely other word, just to give just one example. Actually you only need to look at 'book description' on Amazon to get a flavour of what I mean.
She also comes over as very conceited, especially in relation to what she considers to be her talents for entertaining. Not in writing she hasn't. And, most arrogantly, she refuses to recount what should be at the heart of the book, how she came to terms with her horrendous experiences, by saying that we must read the sequel to her book to find that out. How's that for trades mis-description? (The book is NOT what is says on the tin.)
Much of the text consists of lengthy homilies on how to treat your fellow human beings, and it just comes over as hectoring.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dark side of a man 14 Aug 2013
By Filliam - Published on
Lillian unveiled the reality of many sinister men whose inhuman nature is hard to determine until some one a victim of such devilish act picks all the courage and has gut to spill it all. The book depicts the African scenario of extended family relationship that lingers over families and remains a killer disease in African society.

Lillian, a girl of 8 feared for her death when the monster threatened to kill her if she said it out.
Again it remains a challenge. If Lillian mentioned it out at that age, who knows she would have been called a liar. Even though the truth came out, there was 99% that the whole matter would have been played cool, a common thing in African society.

There are several cases of defilement, let alone Lillian's painful experience, that have been brought to light, but settled amicably particularly when relatives are culprits.

The book cautioned readers to check out the invisible acts in their families that are killing children, especially the female.
I appreciate this book as a real eye opener to all; and need to take precaution.
