Christopher told everything exactly how it was, even down to how he still feels about eunice.
Being of the same age as him and living not too far away,
i found myself thinking of what i was doing at times when christopher reflected on his past, and i must say this boy suffered immensely but doesnt seem to have let it spill into his adult life,
i hope where ever eunice spry is, she has read this book and finally felt some remorse.
The problem is the style in which the book is written. It's not good and there are many occasions where phrases are repeated in the same paragraph and it doesn't read well as a whole. I believe the additional writer was Andrew Holmes and his style is poor and clumsy. That's a shame as Christopher's Spry's tale is compelling and thought-provoking. But for a book like this to be a success it needs more than mere content - and one can't just praise a book because of the shocking treatment of the writer and the sympathy one feels for those who suffered at the hands of a monster as 'Mother'.
If you can cope with the child abuse depicted within I recommend you read it. But if you want a skilfully written account you might be disappointed.
