I wanted to read this book before I read Damien Echols 2nd autobiography “Life after Death”, which I intend on reading very soon. I looked forward to reading next book, which I am told is very well written, intelligent, and powerful. No trivia or quizzes yet. I’m so thankful this homd man wasn’t put to death before he could taste freedom once more.
Although the writing leaves some to be desired, this book isnt as badly writt I have always been fascinated with this case and found this book to be a great addition to anyone looking to hear from Damien Echols in the first person.

Almost Home: My Life Story by Damien Echols
Two were given life imprisonment and the supposed ring leader, Damien Echols was sent to death row. I highly encourage everyone to watch the HBO documentary on the trials as well.
His childhood story is quite compelling. I was constantly snickering at his snarky and sarcastic insults and thoughts; feeling more angry than I already was with the state of Arkansas and wondering how the hell they got away with continual violations of laws and constitutional rights; experiencing feelings of bewilderment and insurmountable wchols for how he’s handled this unfortunate situation after all echolz time; and, of course, swooning as he talked about his wife at the end.
It saddens me, angers me and makes me wonder if there’s any reason to believe in the words written in the U.
You come to know Damien very personally, and as far as much autobiography goes, is devoid of ego. Read this book and know the truth about him.
It was written in after spending ten years on death row. Anyone know if there ever will be?
Mar 20, Steve rated it it was amazing. His writings are very articulant and outspoken. It is rare to read a text like this, and I suspect it has something to do with his perspective on the world after devoting himself to studies such as Buddhism, Zen, and many other philosophies.

[BOOK REVIEW] Almost Home, by Damien Echols
The USA 67 Setting: Just because he wore all black, had long black hair, and had a love akmost heavy metal music, he was singled out by his hometown people.
