I wouldn't expect to pay much more for a book this length, but I probably would anyway given how much I enjoyed it. Being able to read a book about a single night...in a single night makes the timeline far more believable and real, and definitely kept me hooked.
I've read it twice now and continue to pick up on chilling references, just awesome; download!
Very well written and well worth picking up...that is, if you can put it down!
I actually read that a couple of times too that it wasn't a good story! Shocking!!
For anyone that has suffered abuse and has taken the time and relived their worst real nightmares, I salute you. Thank you for sharing your stories and making us aware of what can go on around us. We all have a duty to protect children!
Sorry for ranting, but surely others who have rated higher than the 1 star reviews agree, that is offensive to the authors and victims of abuse.
Even at 79p it is a waste of money. I agree it would have been hard for the writer to keep up that degree of momentum, but I'm ever so glad she didn't. It spared me wasting any more time on what would have been another journey into cathartic recovery on the writers part. I hope this scribble was extremely loosely based, for the authors sake. But in the meantime, she is happily excepting peoples hard earned cash for nothing more than a few pages of hazy memories. This should not mascarade as a book, it's more of an article of reflection.
Tragic and traumatic, we will never know how this man got away with his abuse, or did he? I will not spend another 79p on finding out if another chaotic instalment ever comes to pass.
There's a lot I can't understand - like how no one knew of Emily's existence! Yes she being five was probably too young to go to school -when her mother was murdered by that monster - how she could be hidden away and treated worse than a battered dog and no one knew! How can that still happen in this day an age! And how a monster who wasn't even a relative could keep her hidden for so long! Like how come when he mother was murdered - well to the outside world presumed to probably died of an accident - that nobody went looking for her child - (because you're - yeah if you're reading this Emily- I hope you do read reviews even though they will remind you of a life of hell! I wish I could talk to you directly but there's no way - as I'm not crazy enough to leave my email address on a review - I have loads of questions - and I know it's a review of you're book and I should write about you in the third person - but after reading the story of I wanna say childhood - but that Emily was no childhood -that WAS HELL! - has left feeling I owe it to you to write my review to you -I hope that makes sense!
But Emily I just can't understand there must have been a record somewhere of your existence that you're mother had a child - but nobody had come looking for you! I was gonna say perhaps because you and you're mother may have moved in with that monster not long before you're mothers business trip perhaps they didn't know you was there - but that's crazy too coz coz you're mother was (not gonna say died) was murdered there - you would of thought that the athoritoities would have looked there for you!
When I got to the last page I couldn't believe that was it! That the book was over!Read more ›
