Beautifully written book by a truly remarkable writer
14 July 2017
It feels like a cliche to refer to the author as an amazing young man, but I cannot think of a more fitting phrase. This book is at times very distressing to read as you would expect, but also beautifully written, you cannot help but feel your heart wrench for the little boy he was and his amazing father. The strength they both showed throughout their journey is awe inspiring. I, like so many others, over the years have wondered how Alex grew up and how he and his father coped and moved forward, however it never once occurred to me about the effects of the dreadful behaviour of the press tracking them down repeatedly and putting him at risk while I wondered this. Alex's beliefs in relation to the prison system and Robert Napper really made me stop and think hard. Just a remarkable young man who has grown up with such integrity and heart, do read this amazing book, it has changed my views on many things.
