1.0 out of 5 stars Bad news for Torey hayden and amazon, its a rip off!!, 30 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Silent Boy: He Was a Frightened Boy Who Refused to Speak - Until a Teacher's Love Broke Through the Silence (Hardcover)
WHAT A RIP OFF!!!! I am going to be looking for a full refund by amazon!!
This book is just a repackaged and renamed copy of an earlier book called "Murphy's Boy" and it has not improved with age (as it 24 years old now) dont buy it, just go to your local charity shop and get a copy from there for 20p.
What a let down from the writer to let this happen......but more so AMAZON!! your advertising has let the Amazon team down in a big way, i'm going back to waterstones for my books in future!!

Torey Hayden did announce on her myspace page that Silent Boy was re-named for the english version because some people wouldn't understand the reference to Murphys Law. She also has another book comming out in 2008 in which she has changed the title(not quite sure what its called) I strongly recomend people visit this site as it is quite helpful and may help people avoid disapointment next time round. Although I must say I did not enjoy this book as much as her others.
