If you thought your life was bad, read this!, June 11 2004
This was one of the most gripping books I have ever read. Written by the other son of Sante Kimes, it is a true tale of surviving against the fierce burden of a severely dysfunctional family. I have nothing but admiration for Kent Walker, who had to go through such a wierd life with his sociopathic mother. But, the real value of this book is that it helps to see how difficult it is to find your own path in spite of all the family attachments we grow up with. Of course Mr. Walker's life is an extreme example, and one that I would not wish on anyone. However, it is such a gift that he wrote this book, and it took great courage. I wish I could personally thank Mr. Walker for writing this book, and I encourage everyone to read it.
