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،
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).

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 Pelzer is now 18 years old and enrolled into the AIr Force. Growing up, Dave remembers how life has thrown him some unbeatable obstacles and how he beat the odds.
During his childhood Dave was beaten and starved. He was an outcast among his friends and his family. After all of the years that he was beaten, eventually the word got out that he was being beaten and he was taken from the house immediately and put into the juvenile detention center unt ...more
The book I read is a story about the life of Dave Pelzer called A Man Named Dave by Dave Pelzer. I chose this book because I read the first book in this series. When I saw this I just had to read because the first book was so good and I wanted to finish reading about Dave’s life. This book is the continuation of the story of Dave as a child when he was abused by his mother and the struggles he went through throughout childhood. This book series is honestly my favorite set of boo ...more
The most important scene of the book could arguably be the last encounter David has with his mother(seen in pages 251-252) where he finds himself forgiving her despite the resentment he'd felt towards her for so many years, in return his mother extends her feeling of pride on how far David has come, even admitting that he turned out a fine person as their final farewell. The reasoning behind my selection of this scene is because; despite the two's ...more
