Think of this tale as a modern-day Confessions. It should especially give hope to people whose children or friends have strayed. Never give up hope that they'll find their way back. And who knows--some little thing you do or say might, years down the road, be the thing that brings them back.
Very highly recommended.
David did not have an easy childhood. Yet, his relentless search for the truth has taking him through sex, drugs, and rock n' roll. And then, through observation of natural law, to God.
To the non-believer reader, be open minded and keep reading. This is a genuine search for God, even though David did not know what he was searching for. A search for the truth.
To the believer reader, also be open minded, since this search took many turns, many of them pretty unorthodox, and not pretty it all.
This book is aimed for adult readers. Or very mature teenagers.
And is a great read.
The narrative happens in a stream of consciousness, describing in words the flow of thoughts in his mind. His solitude, as he moves in space and time, intensifies this expression of internal tension, and the tension when he faces the world. As he lacks a basis for his growth, he goes through an interior monologue trying to find answers, even as he was not taught properly in childhood about the way life really works, in a warm and cozy parental home - his life was split up between his father and mother’s homes, rehab clinics, and the highways. It is a story of a boy, being very honest to himself, trying to grow up a man, but lacking an environment and a reference, a "vorbild" (in German), to constructing his own identity.
Then he tries many things, goes rambling through the world, crossing many highways, paths, mountains, cemeteries, mud, forests, hippies camps, the Prado Museum, churches in Germany and in the US, families houses' in Spain and France, old and young people, till he goes back to his own home and feels at peace in the arms of a radical man, named Jesus.
The book has incredible teachings about life and faith, and how to go through one’s own internal emotions and mental structures, digging and fighting good and evil in the deepest of our own character, rambling through the world, and constructing one’s own dignity… and a beautiful mind.
I would like to add how much sensitized I am about having read this life story so clear and true that brought to me a lot of of feelings of joy and also sadness, especially when it portrays childhood and adolescence, time of need of guidance and examples of life to guide us. Congratulations to the author who knew how to "see" and "listen". My respect and admiration for his life trajectory and courage to expose himself.
