This is a heartfelt and moving story Don t let the three stars mislead you this will pull on your heartstrings and make you appreciate just how much we take it for granted that we can verbalize our communications Nevertheless the promo information misrepresented the nature of the story and made it seem like Martin was completely unable to communicate or let anyone know that he was conscious at allSecond the narrative framing is somewhat hard to follow Events are presented out of seuence and often without dates so it s tricky to follow a sense of progression as Martin recovers and regains some control of his lifeSo in the end I m torn the story here is very heartfelt and sincere but I think the prose needs some sprucing up and restructuring I leave it to you to decide what that s worth in terms of a rating For me I think I ll split the difference here

What do you think the worst things to tolerate would be if you had locked in syndrome and could not communicate at all with people who did not even realise you had cognitive function Unseasoned food too hot coffee fed through a straw and being positioned with his testicles trapped under him in his wheelchair Also that having to watch Barney loving everyone on the care home tv was driving him madThe author fell into a vegetative state at age 12 and started to come round at 16 but it was not until he was 19 and a carer realised that he was conscious and listening to her that tests and eventually communication devices made a return to a relatively normal life possible The author is still in a wheelchair and still uses a computer to speak but he is married and works at a high level in computers What stands out about the book is the author s detailing of the abuse especially the sexual abuse he received from women carers who used his body to satisfy themselves in perverse ways secure in the knowledge he couldn t tell anyone There are also incidents of violence such as when the author was given an enema so violently he bled copiously He continued bleeding into the bath he was given The carer dipped his toothbrush in this bloody fouled water and brushed his teeth with itEvery week there are stories of children in care homes and vulnerable adults in old age homes being physically violently abused I never imagined that women would sexually abuse teenage boys with presumed no mental capacity thoughThe book isn t really that interesting The story is not uniue but the author is so three stars for the book but one for the author for overcoming everything including total illiteracy to write it
