The Lost Boy (Dave Pelzer #2)
Imagine a young boy who has never had a loving home. His only possesions are the old, torn clothes he carries in a paper bag. The only world he knows is one of isolation and fear. Although others had rescued this boy from his abusive alcoholic mother, his real hurt is just begining -- he has no place to call home.
This is Dave Pelzer's long-awaited sequel to A Child Calle...more
قلت ربما يكون رواية فيها معاناة ولا أحب الروايات المأساوية أو ربما يكون كتبه أحد التربويين عن طفل متشرد ولا يختلف الأمر كثيراً في نظري
ولكن ما إن تناولته لم استطع تركه! فهو كما قلت قصة مأساوية ولكن من الكاتب؟ الطفل نفسه
ولكن بالطبع كبر وأصبح هو نفسه مستشاراً تربوياًوكتب هذه القصة لا أدري متى هل دون ملاحظات أيام طفولته التعيسة وهو في منتهى الشقاء أم من ذاكرته وهذا استبعده لأن الأحداث كتبت بتفصيل وتعبير كأنها تحدث الآن ولكن أن يدون الطفل الصغير هذه الم ...more
The first book tells you about this little (literally) kid who was strong and determined enough to stay alive amidst all the abuse his mother had put him through.
This second part of the trilogy, however, tells you about a boy who's trying to become a man in order to fit in to the society that's all new to him.

I fell in love with this book. It was amazing. This book is a sequel to the first book called 'The Child Called It'. Some kids, teens or adults are afraid to talk about their abusive childhood past. The author does an autobiography about his past, how his mother made him drink washing detergent and make him vomit food. I cannot even imagine that this could even happen. Pelzer's father never bothered to help his own son, I cried when I read this book. It shocked me just to rea ...more

حسيت بديفد الطفل المضطهد. وكيف ممكن يوصل الإنسان لمرحلة يكاد يفقد فيها عقله بسبب التأثير السلبي للناس من حوله، فعلاً الناس مرعبين.
يالله فعلاً من رحم المعاناة يكتشف الشخص أفضل صوره.. حبيت الرواية جداً، كرهت دار النشر *العربية للعلوم* ترجمة رديئة للغاية ولكن ما يضر إن الرواية تستحق خمس نجوم.
أتمنى أتعلم كديفد ولكن بطريقة أقل وجعاً.
This book moved me to tears and was very eye-open ...more

تلقي الضوء على المعاناة التي يلاقيها الأطفال
في بعض الأسر...هذا إذا جاز لنا تسميتها أسرة
أو عائلة.وسبحان الخالق كيف رسخت تلك التفاصيل
في عقل ذلك الطفل ليختزلها فيما بعد ويكتبها
كقصة أو سيرة لحياته.
ذكريات مأساوية لطفل...لا أدري الذنب الذي أقترفه
ليعامل أقل من الحيوانات والمصيبة من أمه.
وصدق الشاعر قديما حيث قال:
وظلم ذوي القربى أشد مضاضة
على النفس من وقع الحسام المهند.
