4.0 out of 5 stars This Boy, 25 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Boy (Kindle Edition)
This Boy brings back many childhood memories for me. I too was a poor child in the early 1950s though thankfully I didn't suffer the abject poverty and loss of parents that Alan did. Reading his description of having no heating, no hot water, no lights and outside loos with wooden bench seats brought it all back to me. There were thousands of us poor children during that time although I'm sure that not many were orphaned and had to fend for themselves to the extent that Alan and his sister did. A very good read - it should be read by or to those who think they are poor today because it shows just how far we have progressed in this society in trying to help those who need help most. Well done Alan for making such a success of your life despite the poverty and hardship you, your mum and your sister suffered.
