Man's Inhumanity to Man

I was given this book by the author via audiobook boom. This is a story of how a three-year-old boy lived through seven years of horror before being big enough to run away. His Father killed his Mamma and her lover. Then took it out on the little boy. After God sends angels to protect him in the guise of a hound dog and special signs from the sky. Jake is provided with a home filled with love. Circumstances bring him back to his father or almost and in the end the twist that led to him uniting with his grandfather and getting a mother were well written. The story is long and does some twists and turns but worth listening to until the end.

What a twisted web...

Beautifully written and utterly tragic, this story will pull at your heart strings.

The theme of abuse makes this hard to read but awareness of the cycle of abuse where a victim goes on to be an abuser is important to understand and is written well in this book.

There is a spiders web of connections between the main characters in this book and the development of the relationships between them is well written and poignant. The connection between Jake and Hound never failed to make me smile.

Well worth listening to.

The narration did a good job, I wasn't totally sold on the character voices but the delivery was well done with a good pace and natural sounding phrasing.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
