There are other stories tangled in the novel, an adopted child, a child reunited with his father and a child killing his father and grandfather who abandon him."
What I got out of this novel ....
This was definitely not a happy story...it was a horrible one and I agree with a title of a chapter 'Born in Hell.' Wow, what a description of this child's horrible journey into manhood as he grow up in this unwanted orphan in communist Romania. It was quite interesting how this novel is about Daniel growing up in an orphanage then escapes....living in sewers then coming to America....then trying to survive where he was not wanted. This is a intensed read of the memoirs of this author.
My impression of this novel...
I found it very emotional interesting and even heartbreaking read for anyone to have to go through and even more for one to have to read about. This is definitely not a read for everyone...more for the mature audience. I know their were grammar problems, however after all is said and done this author has given us a honest worth while and sincere accounting of his journey into manhood.
