Dave Pelzer's memoir of childhood abuse will certainly cause tears and disbelief in all but the most hard-hearted reader... unless they've heard the comments from his family members and acquaintances that cast a shadow of doubt on the whole situation. If it's all true, this book is a story of horrific child abuse carried out by a cold, cruel, emotionally disturbed mother on an innocent young boy; his tales of her tortures and sick "games" are gut-wrenching. The writing itself is sub-genius and cliched, but makes for easy reading. If you like being depressed, this is the book for you.
