There’s something about getting to know someone so intimately you almost feel like you are that person for a while and yet you have never met them.

Dominican Republic 1 Setting: There are a few who still believe that Damien is a devil-worshipping child killer, but as time passes and more facts rise to the surface, it becomes even more clear that he is the victim of a peculiar species of hysteria.

Almost Home : My Life Story by Damien Echols (2005, Paperback)

So far, I’m a little conflicted about the whole reading-the-memoir-of-a-guy-on-death-row-who’s-prolly-innocent thing. Jul 10, Kate rated it it was amazing. We’ll assume you’re ok with this, but you can opt-out if you wish.

This book taught me that just because a person is different doesn’t mean that he or she is a danger to society. This book is not yet featured on Listopia.
