Sy het haarself Stom Anna genoem. Omdat sy aan niemand kon vertel van dit wat tussen haar en haar stiefpa plaasgevind het nie. Nie aan haar ma nie, nie aan haar beste vriendin nie, en selfs nie aan haar eie pa nie. Dit is ’n verhaal wat sy nou eers, jare later, kan uitskryf. Nou eers kan sy die swye verbreek oor hoe haar stiefpa haar diepste menswees aangetas het. En hoe s...more

A extremely emotional book. When i dropped the book after reading the last sentence there was a box of tissues next to me. I had to use it a few times while reading this book.

It's a terrible story and even more terrible because its base on a true one. It is a heart rending book and your heart bleeds for the poor girl who had to suffer through so many misery only having a ... there is not a bad enough word... father and a ghost of a mother. She had to grow up when she was only a toddler and had...more

This is a very deep and emotional book. There is not one moment you will dare to smile or laugh. Personally, when I had finished the book, my pillow was drenched.

I got very worked up while reading this book because it is all being seen through the eyes of an innocent, young child. You grow up with the character (Anna) and start to feel everything she feels. This book is not for the faint hearted. When starting this book, be prepared for the onslaught of emotions that WILL overwhelm you.

From a purely literary point of view this book was not the best I have ever read. The writing was almost raw and unvarnished and that is probably what the author was going for. The content however was gripping if very difficult to read. It’s recommended with caution.

It was disturbing to read about her experience and the fact that her mother refused to believe her daughter and prefered to believe him. How can a mother that are suppose to love and protect you not see and listen to what is happening to her child . To desert your child and never look back. Then I close my eyes and thank. God. that all through my life my mother is there to keep me safe and loved

If we put aside the poor writing (afrikaans accents etc), didnt bother me at all, and the fact that its brutally honest at times, if you can stomach it - read it! brilliant book..so heartbreaking & I found myself crying often with this book. Some parts had me sick to my stomach litrally...but otherwise its one of those heartwrenching true story that will stay with me forever.

I read this book in 2007.

This book was originally written in Afrikaans, and has been translated by Marianne Thamm.
It's a horrifying account of a little girl being sexually abused by her step-father.
This book will break your heart and make you very, very angry.
Anastassia
This was such a sad story, but you almost get a sense of "thata girl" realising that she's gone the extra mile to actually write it all down. The ending was a bit neglected, but all in all, a very good read.

Tayla
Read the English version, it's a true story about a girl whose step dad molests her. Really depressing but so good.

Uitstekende outobiografie!
Amanda Fair
A Novel not easily read - not because the story is told in difficult language, but taking the reader on this emotional trip, stained with the realities of past, almost too fearful to find out more. Emotionally one cannot detached yourself from the tragedy busy evolving. Why is our societies still so sick? The damage almost "undone-able" these abuses hidden from society and well secured in the hands of the abuser. -They should not even being considered for any fairness . The cruelty of robbing a...more

Ondanks dat dit een erg aangrijpend verhaal is, vond ik het boek op zich toch een klein beetje tegenvallen. Misschien dat het aan de manier ligt waarop het geschreven is, ik weet het niet. Het verhaal op zich is natuurlijk verschrikkelijk, het zal je maar gebeuren dat je misbruikt word door je stiefvader en dat je eigen moeder je dan ook nog eens niet geloofd, ik moet er niet aan denken. Voor mij drie duimpjes dit boek.

I read this book for Afrikaans class ahead of the class and finished it. It was gripping to learn just ho much children have to suffer in the world because of parents who do not deserve to have any.
Annie
Amazing story that pulled me in and made me feel some of her pain it was the first book I read that truly made me feel as if I was right there as it was happening its an amazing book but it does pull at your heart
Sarah
Not particularly well-written (let's chalk it up to translation), but horrifyingly un-put-down-able.
