I actually enjoyed reading since I first began, especially how the family started out in the first chapters and how the author described his own view on the orphanage. Honestly, orphanages are sometime good because the orphanages do help these children to do work without any parent's guidance. So I read all through the book, it turned out great from the beginning to the end. I'd suggest people to read this wonderfully-made and realistic book to have an adventure in an orphan's eyes.

Good read, particularly enjoyed his balanced view of what he learned in the orphanage system. Not everything was horrendous . This very accomplished man has valuable lessons to share with us. If I were to criticize anything, it would be his stylistic approach to writing, pedantic at times. I was acutely aware of the " writer's voice", if you get my meaning?
