Apr 13, Jenn rated it liked it. This is a must read for anyone familiar with the true story of the West Memphis Three, teen-age boys who were tried and convicted of murdering three eight year old boys in Arkansas, even though there was no evidence of any kind linking any of them to any of the three little boys.

I found Almost Home to be a sad book overall, Echols has no concept of what it’s like to live as a free adult. It is a superior source for those of you who may not know much about the case yet or for those of you who are long-time supporters of the three. There was a time in his life when the family was so poor they were living in a one-room tin shack with a dirt floor and trying to grow their own yome to survive, and as an intelligent but in my opinion sarcastic and misanthropic teen with “unusual” interests living in small town deep South, his life was ripped away from him at an appallingly young age by corrupt authorities.



ecyols The trial is glossed over, as is much of his ten years so far on death row. The beauty of this novel lies in its simplicity. I have seen 4 almodt about this case and it just made me so sad.

Almost Home I have followed this case for seven years and have always been fascinated with Damien. And I think they’re innocent. Other books have been written about the trial, etc.

Science Fiction 8 Genre: The kids I ran with were the long haired,black t shirt wearing,heavy metal listening”different” kids who expressed themselves in their appearance This book taught me that just because a person is different doesn’t mean that he or she is a danger to society.

[BOOK REVIEW] Almost Home, by Damien Echols

They have since been set free after pleading the Alford plea. This was, after all, the ‘s and not the s. This is not ideal, but at least after 13 years, they are free.

He, along with Jason Baldwin and Jessie Admien have become known as The West Memphis Three, and though the story of their arrest and conviction is widely known, most people don’t know the real people behind the sound bites and the TV news segment clips.

It details his life up to the point where he was arrested, and after that only echops the aspects of his life that he wished to bring to the world.

Almost Home: My Life Story by Damien Echols

I am not seeing a Kindle version of this. Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, damisn, and phone. I knew,even then,that this was a pure witch hunt. Out of the countless autobiographies I have read this one is the most fascinating. His writings are very articulant and outspoken. Damien mainly recounts his youth in ‘My Life Story’ and what led up to his years on death row.
