5.0 out of 5 stars
An outstanding book, 23 Aug. 2004
'A Fortunate Life' is one of those rare books that you start reading, and then end up pacing yourself because you don't want it to end. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about each stage of Facey's difficult life, and felt very humbled by the fact that despite so much adversity, he considered himself to have been fortunate. You will laugh as much as you'll cry when you read this book; I absolutely loved it.
