You would think it is hard to feel sorry for violent 16 year old Nazi leader but through detailed accounts Meeink shows what it is like to be consumed by hatred and how it becomes a slippery slope. There are some truly horrible events happening in this book which have helped his road to becoming a better person, but i definitely feel it has had some effect on me. Normally i read books on culture, they show me what things were like and help me see where they're going but this deeply personal memoir is the first book i have EVER read that made me feel like i may well up.
This book is more than worth buying. I am so glad i bought it, its is without a doubt one of the best books i have ever read.
I have much respect for Frank Meeink
