I have to say this in not a book I would generally read However, after reading it, I m glad I took a chance on this book This book is about Leo and his abusive childhood with his mom His mom who knew every trick in the book on how to NOT get caught abusing her children The father seemed ambivalent to the entire thing The dad had moved on with his life Leo and his brother s were left with their mom to fend for themselves He spent his childhood in and out of metal hospitals and boarding military s [...]
This author put his difficult life on these pages and I have to admit, I m having a very hard time reviewing this book I ve read a few memoirs before, one of a fictional character, Inigo Balboa in Alatriste series Though writing guidelines may differ for memoirs and certain things are all right to use in abundance, such as parentheses, clich s, comparatives, still I have never come across this in any I ve read before, and some are published years ago.While writing is a solitary job, no one write [...]
Rating 3 1 2 StarsNormally the word autobiography would automatically make me turn away, but this one read a lot like a fast moving story with edge The writing is not as good at it could be, but the story is interesting and emotional so that drew me in right away The plot covers parental abuse, bullying, the ensuing mental problems, alcohol abuse, academic difficulties, and eventually, emotional acceptance and academic and professional success Throughout the story I could see the characters slo [...]
I have to agree with other reviews that the writing is not the greatest Although, I thought that added to the mood of the book To me, the voice of the author came through strong and clear, and it felt almost like he was physically present, speaking his life s story to me personally I could hear him plainly, and almost see his nervous tic, his knee bouncing up and down and catch the furtive glances he threw over his shoulder First and foremost when I read, I want a good, gripping story There is n [...]
Overall a good book.Its a true story of the writer, a child abuse case.Being fan of inspirational stories, I liked this book.
I purchased this book on after picking up a sample and getting sucked in by the story Intrusive Memory is haunting, to say the least, and will make you thankful for what you have right in front of you Enough cavorting around, on to the review.From a reader s perspective I got sucked right into the world portrayed on the pages of this book Being the child of an abusive mother is one thing being the victim of such extreme abuse as outlined in this story is something else altogether To give you an [...]
I m hoping that I read the whole book I downloaded it for free and Adobe as a pdf file had 84 pages and this edition has 200 something pages I feel like I read the whole story because there was a beginning, a middle and an end The beginning of the story hooks the reader in about the horrors of the author s life and you want to beat all the people that made his life miserable Then you get into his college years and you re rooting for him because he s working this hard to better himself and still [...]
Thought provoking book Title Intrusive Memories would be accurate.I hope the author continues to improve as well as enjoying his work I understand his feelings about his mother, and I would probably feel the same I don t know how he worked out the issue with his father regarding fake abuse charges, but I have a great deal of respect for both for getting past it I do hope that Leo maintains contact with his younger brothers so he can help guide them from his own experiences It sounds like they n [...]
I give this book 5 stars not because of the grammar or writing but because of the incredible story and courage of the author in laying out his life for all of us to see I really recommend anyone who suffers from Mental illness to read this book It almost seems like a journal in a way It is horrifying and heartwarming at the same time I am sad at the failure of psychiatry to treat PTSD and I have similar problems myself No one takes them seriously as Leo saidif you seem functional then how can yo [...]
I thought this was of a tool of self help for the author but a great, hopefully healing, way for Leo to write his memoir I liked Leo and felt badly for the things he experienced and was exposed to as a child, even though we only got a brief look at his memories and his childhood, I could tell that he was disturbed by his thoughts and feelings as an adult How would he have been different growing up in a loving home We can never know There was a lot of medical side notes which I attribute to the [...]
This book was a good read, the only part of the book that I did not care for was when the author kept interrupting the story to explain what certain conditions mean I ended up just scanning thru those parts Leo s childhood was hell and its sad how his mom treated the boys and used them against their dad for punishment because he didn t want her no His mother should have been stopped Maybe he will be able to help another child who is in trouble before they suffer as he did I also wish the author [...]
this book got to me.g bullied throughout school I felt for the authorople don t know what you live so in their ignorance they make up stories or make fun of to make you feel worse than you already do some sick weird way it makes them feel superiorI too had continual stomach issues in school but not to this extremeill had to wait to go at home because bathrooms were just as bad as busy hallways sometimes worse.The Author even thru all of this actually did something good with his life
First off, WTF I want to give props to the author for being brave enough to put his story on pages and I do hope that it served as a form of self healing I could not believe what I was reading but it saddens me to think that everything that happened to Leo could be happening to other children right now I enjoyed the entire story and I wish Leo the best.
I actually really enjoyed this book and really wasn t expecting to It really helped me understand some things about mental illness And the fact that he went on to go to medical school is just inspiring.
