Londa (londalocs) | 1526 comments Read this as a hardcover.

His life story can stand as a testament to others who feel as though life is against them at every turn. He really did make a way out of no way. Maybe he wanted to be an inspiration.

His accounts were very believable.

I was most impressed by Miss Dora's goodwill and kind heart and by Greg's perseverance.

I have never her the author speak, but now that I know who he is, I would love to one day.

2 I agree with Londa, I think inspiring others was part of it. I also wonder if it wasn't cathartic for him.
3 Yes, I know people with similar life stories (some even worse).
4 Miss Dora's kindness. His parents' idiocy.
5 No, I would like to though.

4. Miss Dora's unselfish act of love and kindness, his father's self-pity.
