Broken, is a memoir written about the author’s life, how he grew up and the challenges he faced with abuse and recovery. From the beginning, it is very easy to see that life has not been easy. Losing a father while his mother is pregnant with his sister, taking beatings and several close to death situations, all take its toll on our protagonist.
The intention of writing the book is clear. The author wishes to display the notion that we, as humans can survive the hardest of situations and still outnumber the odds. The feeling that no one cares was quite apparent, and that left an impression on me as a reader.
The literature was easy to follow and understand. The book isn’t long and does not really sway off topic. Everything is clear and the message, in the end, provides evidence that love makes you stronger.
It was easy to feel for the author and to comprehend what he has gone through. This statement is not to mean that I personally have gone through the same, but to say that the way it was written enabled me to apprehend how he would have been feeling at the time.
I recommend this book to people that like to read memoirs and happy ending stories.
