The book is a compelling, if very tough at times, read. I, too, have had to look away and compose myself, at times, before carrying on. Many of the gruesome details I was already prepared for, others I was not. But this book is much more than that; as Ralph says, it is a celebration of the life, albeit so tragically short, of his beloved son. It is an account of the impact of the loss of James to a caring, supportive family and community. It is also a mark of appreciation and genuine gratitude towards everyone who had been, and who still are, supporting this family; from police, to jury, to solicitors, to undertakers, not to mention to the family itself, the community and the charity which is part of James' legacy. I found myself chuckling at the descriptions of James tearing around and being an entertaining, happy little boy, despite my knowing what was coming next.Read more ›
It is truly amazing how this family have got through the last 20 years and this book just shows you what they went threw that we public had no way of knowing
It's nice to read about what James was like in the few short years he was with his family
This book really does show what the Bulger family has had to go through all these years and my heart broke with every page
Rest in peace little baby James xxxxx
I'm glad I did.
I remember vividly the abduction & murder of beautiful baby James and the shock waves that the world felt in the wake of this horrific incident. I will NEVER forget the grainy CCTV images of Thompson & Venables leading their helpless victim away to what would be one of the most shocking murders the world has ever witnessed.
So why was I reticent to buy & read the book? Well, for two reasons - 1. Was I able to deal with the full revelations of what happened? And 2. I have lost a young myself two short years ago in a dreadful accident and didn't know how I would feel reading about acute loss/grief from a father's perspective. To be completely honest what convinced me to read in the end was the hope that some of what I think & feel on a daily basis was "normal" for a grieving parent. After having read it all I can say is Thank you so much to Ralph Bulger for being so eloquent & brutally honest about your grief - you will never know how much you have helped me from one grieving father to another.
As you expect the book is deeply upsetting & shocking in places but perhaps the most surprising element of the book is how you are left feeling that not only have the Bulger family suffered a huge loss in their lives but that the legal/political system has treated them incredibly unfairly over the years and that the safety/sanity of the child murders has been given priority over the victims. It is disgusting & unforgivable to treat a grieving family in this manner.Read more ›
