Thinking can be hard work......

by jordyn s on Jan 24, 2013

Very good, very moving story about a boy with a mental condition. Lets people see the world very well through his eyes, the simplicity and sometimes tradedy but love and humour too. The boy when young commits a murder he thought was very well deserved. He goes into a mental institution for years and then is 'cured'. He comes into a world of various things. Good kind people that want to just get on by and help him if they can. And sick, nasty, violent males that are supposedly 'normal' and call him a sick bloke. This is his journey.
