5.0 out of 5 stars prove that amongst the cover ups and conspiracy there were some good people looking out for Michael, 8 July 2014
This review is from: Getting Life: An Innocent Man's 25-Year Journey from Prison to Peace (Kindle Edition)
Getting Life is by far the most inspirational book that I have ever read. A true tale of survival it will be have you gripped from the opening pages.

A remarkable account of Michael's life behind bars for a murder that he did not commit, from the horrific discovery of his wife's body, to the agony of his broken relationship with his son, Michael's tale is tragic.

Yet never once does he feel sorry for himself.

From his arrival in penitentiary through to his meetings with the Innocence Project, Michael never once stopped fighting to prove his innocence. Michael is a truly remarkable and admirable human being who should be proud of what he has achieved with this memoir.

There were times whilst reading, that I had to remind myself that it was a memoir, a work of truth, and not a novel, as some of the things that happen are so disturbing.

It seems incomprehensible that Michael was made to suffer in the (many) ways that he was at the hands of his fellow human beings. He was badly let down by so many, yet never once set out for revenge - although of course it crossed his mind, he is only human after all.

The work of the innocence project, together with Michael's lawyers, prove that amongst the cover ups and conspiracy there were some good people looking out for Michael, who, together with his parents and closest family members helped secure his release.

Michael today is undoubtedly a very different man from the one who was charged with his wife's murder more than 25 years ago, but he should feel very proud of how much he has achieved and just how far he has come.
