    This book is truly a 5 star read. Based on a true story it shows what happened to a man when his life spiraled out of control. A truly brilliant man was sucked into the world of drugs, sex, and every bad thing that happens when you lead a destructive life. If you live in the Nashville area you will recognize a lot of the places he references in the book. The book will definitely hold your interest to the end. This would make an excellent movie.

    Recently it was my privilege to visit with Allan Brooks. He is an example that people can change. He would welcome comments from those who have read the book. His address is: Allan Brooks 136706, RMSI 6-B, 7475 Cockrill Bend Blvd., Nashville, TN 37209....Allen Brooks reveals in this novel the four phases of his life, each of which holds its own unique challenging events and all of which held the attention of this reader. During his first twelve years of childhood, he experienced the divorce of his parents and the death of his father. This was followed by seven years of relatively stable circumstances while attending a private military school. The next twenty years were filled with some success, including a college degree, but for the most part it was a life of uncontrolled dissipation. This illustrates how an undisciplined environment can overwhelm us if we are not cognizant of its devastating results. For the last twenty-one years he has been incarcerated. During this period, Allan... More > has felt the reality that actions have consequences. It has been a period of self evaluation and discoveries that are filled with regret. It seems that most human beings have an innate desire to correct mistakes and seek redemption. This has been true with Allan. His penitent spirit as a result of an on-going development of a spiritual relationship provides an inner peace although he remains regretful every day for the pain and grief he has caused. It provides, to readers of his story, a hope when life’s challenges overwhelm us. I strongly recommend the reading of this book. Allen’s story holds great value for all of us.< Less

    I give this book 5 stars. This is one of the most gripping and emotional books I have read in a long time. It's a journey of a man with demons to battle to finally find the good within himself and redemption for the many dark moments of his life. We all have them but in an instance he went to far. It is about his healing and hope for forgiveness. Just by his words you can see the heartfelt sorrow of all the wrongs in his life. He doesn't get a second chance to do it all over again. Neither does his victim. Ultimately he hasn't experienced any real happiness in his life. By turning down the wrong fork in the road and with the wrong kind of women he gave away any chance he could have had. He takes all of the blame himself which is commendable. Most people in his situation don't have the remorse that he does because they are not saved as Christians. People just don't realize how easily Christ can heal the hearts of the good and the bad. Mr. Brooks has come a long way and he should be... More > proud of himself for knowing he did wrong and truly accepting the punishment that was bestowed upon him because of that fateful night.< Less

    I guess Allan would be confused. I knew him when he was very young. If I were ever to see him I would be able to tell in 5 minutes if he is really a changed person.......maybe one day.......
