5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read...., March 29, 2009
This review is from: There Is an Urgency (Paperback)
Being an avid reader, I truly appreciated the Author's blunt detailing of the events that transpired during his formative years...while reading it, you actually feel that you are witnessing the events as they happened - a very unnerving feeling. His on-the-mark descriptive style puts the reader in that little apartment in Bridgeport, Connecticut...the sounds, the smells, the visions assault the senses and leave you unable to put the book down. I myself read it in one night.
I also enjoyed his layout of the book, allowing the reader not only a "breather" from the sad, pitiless abuse he suffered, but letting us see how these terrible events went on to shape him as a man, and the positive influence he has had on the young people in his care now.
I enjoyed reading this book, and would highly recommend it to anyone - not just those who have suffered abuse. I feel that if this book does not save a life (enlightening people to the real chance that they most likely know someone who is or has been physically or sexually abused) it will most assuredly save someone's soul.
