I'm sorry - I know Dave had a terrible life (controversy aside), and that he suffered more than any child should ever have to, but I still couldn't get over his attitude as he got older.
So I'm heartless, maybe. But there was a clear movement from memories of horrors from his youth to accounts of how his adult life was too tough and altogether unfair to live through.
At least he was given a chance! At least he was removed fro ...more
I read My Story (comprising of this book, The Lost Boy and The Child Called "It"). Basically an autobiography that covers his life up to this moment. David was abused from the age of 4 to 12 by his mother. This took place within closed doors but it was possible to deduce this from just looking at his appearance. No one did anything concrete to intervene. Any halfhearted attempts were blocked by his mother. Several times, he came close to losing his life or suffering permanent dam ...more
القصة تحكي عن طفل تعرض لمعاملة سيئة من والدته التي تعمدت التقليل من شأنه حتى أنها حرمته من اسمه وعذبته ولم يفعل والده شيئا بخصوص ذلك بحكم أنهما كانا سكّيرين وأن الأطفال لم يكونوا يحظون بحقوق مشابهة للوقت الراهن مجتمعيا،
The main characters would be Dave and his mother, alon ...more
Because it is. It's poorly written, wanders through Dave's life as an adult, sees him make some stupid decisions and then yay, tie it all up with a bow, here's a happy ending (this guy's life is not over but the book is).
I can see the ...more

A horrible translation! I needed to get that out of my system first. There is so much bad language in my Finnish translation that it's almost difficult to concentrate on the actual story. The grammar geek in me would love to hit this book with the Red Pen of Dissapproval.
The story in itself is obviously horrible. I'm so happy that times are changing and it's more and more easy for children to get the help they need. I was a bit dissappoi ...more

I saw him speak back in 2001 and it was a strange experience. I'm sure it comes as no surprise that he seems a little off socially and kind of angry-how could you go through what he went through and not be a little off, I guess it's amazing that he's not more tha ...more
Dave the little boy from a "Child Called It" talks about his growth from being a child and the abuse that he took from his mother to becoming a man and finding resilience in the human spirit.
After 12 years of abuse Dave is finally put into a foster care home, and that is only because the schools nurse was suspicious about the bruises and as to why he always wore the same clothes and never seen the child eat although she knew he was starving. Dave got pu ...more
I did not like it.
Here's the thing: this is Dave Pelzer's third book about his childhood trauma. I did not read the other two (though I vaguely remember the press "A Boy Called It" got back in 1995). After two prior books, what else is there to say, really? This one covers his childhood briefly, just to give you an idea of how much of a disaster his mother was, then launches into his life as an adult.
The book is e ...more
