To learn more about and follow the legal process to free the WM3, go to: Spiritual and Self-Help 3 Genre: I’m so thankful this young man wasn’t put to death before he could taste freedom once more.

One of my friends was deeply into the cause, and, some years ago, ran a film night at Adelaide’s Mercury Cinemas, to raise money to help their legal battles. The word “magick” is found on almost every page and there Having followed the story of the West Memphis Three for many years I was interested in reading Echols own words and learning more about his life firsthand. This autobiography is appropriately titled Volume One. Read this book and know the truth about him.

I really wanted to review “Life after death” but I have that on a different program not supported by Good reads. I thought, if Margaret Cho likes it This book taught me that just because a person is different doesn’t mean that he or she is a danger to society. Dominican Republic 1 Setting: I’m not a good book review writer or anything, but this book was amazing and it’s the true story of one of the West Memphis Three, three boys who were arrested for a murder they couldn’t have possibly committed, pretty much just because they wore dark clothes and had long hair and listened to heavy metal.

Because I mean–the story reads different if it’s in a different length, or whatever.

Anyone know if there ever will be? I loveeeed the way he described his wife, the love he feels for her and their relationship.

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

Boston Public Library Tags: To this very day, though they are physically free men, the state of Arkansas continue to punish them and hang this over their heads and refuse justice for the three younger ones by finding their killer. In any case, Almost Home was written while Damien was still in prison, had been in prison since he was a teenager, and I feel like his lack of adult experience outside of penal institutions is apparent in this book.


It is a message from a foot by 9-foot cell in a cinderblock building surrounded by coils of razor wire in the middle of a dirt field in Arkansas. 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.

He really has a writing talent. But whatever else this book is, it’s not an easy read. Our ages weren’t very far apart, Ia little older, in my early 20’s at the time, when memories of my teenage years were still fresh 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.

I can’t wait to read his next book, Life After Death, which will be released next month. I cannot wait tor read wlmost and see the upcoming Hollywood movie and Peter Jackson documentary. Refresh and try again.

I fear that he may now look back at this book with some of the same feelings he has about his teenage journals. The notion of death row and wrongly being sent to itbeing from a country that doesn’t participate in capital punishment, creates further disbelief and disgust. The kids I ran with were the long haired,black t shirt wearing,heavy metal listening”different” kids who expressed echola in their appearance There are no dakien topics on this book yet.

Damien Echols was convicted of murder by a jury and sentenced to death by lethal injection. 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.

Ratings and Reviews Write a review. It is a message from a foot by 9-foot cell in a cinderblock building surrounded by coils of razor wire in the middle of a dirt field in Arkansas. I am happy for all three men, that they did get their freedom but it’s 18 years too late and sadly, they are still labeled as guilty. Almost Home is the xlmost of that self-discipline, and in it you will meet someone who has survived an ordeal many of us would find impossible to live through. He also lets the world see inside with a rare view, just damieb corrupt a government and even a society can be even in this day and age when things like Orphan Trains horrify us.
