5.0 out of 5 stars The Beauty of the Strong Willed and Faithful, 2 Oct. 2005
This review is from: This Blinding Absence of Light (Hardcover)
A friend gave me a copy of this book and told me to read it. I did so and found it hard to get into but after two chapters I found a rhtyhm. I read the entire book in one session and could not put it down.
The amazing yet at the same time horrifying descriptions in the book - the humanity shown by the prisoners in a place where humanity no longer existed, the reliance on the self and gifts from heaven, the stages man goes through in isolation and the shock when coming out of it - all presented in a unique and immensely personal voyage. Dignity exudes from the author.
At one point, whilst reading, I was in a torrent of tears and prayed for one of the departed companions in the book. I do not normally cry so easily but this account of one man's life in hell was not an easy affair to read about.
Undoubtably this work has the ability to change ones life.
