Read from February 03 to 13, 2012

I found the audio book at the library. I decided to let Anderson read his story to me. He really has a way with words. He is surprisingly poetic. I enjoyed his writing/storytelling style. It is weird though, I both loved and hated how he kept going back and forth to stories of his childhood and tying them into his investigative journal experiences of the more recent past. I could see myself writing this way, but it also made it difficult to follow at times, especially since I was listening to it on audiobook. All that being said, Anderson is a brave man. I don't know how he's faced the things he's faced and seen the things he's seen and come out this sane and level headed. His story makes for a compelling read/listen. This is a well deserved four stars in my book.
