The Bully (Book) - 7/6/2004 4:23:39 PM
Thanks for penning this book. It is very much still needed. I remember my school bully. To this day, the memories are vivid. Yes, it is a worldwide issue that hits close to home.

Originally published as an e-book, The Bully received much praise and repeated requests for a print version. That enthusiasm resulted in the print version of the book. Contact the author to purchase The Bully in print format.

The Price of Freedom (Book) - 10/8/2002 11:03:51 PM
Very highly recommended THE PRICE OF FREEDOM is a deeply moving autobiography of Yugoslavia-born Alex Domokos. The book takes place during the years 1951 to 1962 with flashbacks to the author's youth in Hungary where his parents fled during political unrest, his years as an army officer during World War II, and his six years of torture and misery in Russian forced labor camps. Later, deported by Hungary's Communist government, his suffering continues as he is denied a decent job or wages and the ability to adequately provide for his family.Written with exquisite dignity, Domokos shares a life we can scarcely imagine. His struggle to live a simple life with his wife, and later their daughter, seems eternally out of his grasp. Living under a reign of distrust, suspicion and fear, he must fight for enough to eat, even for a decent place to sleep. But living in quarters without heat or privacy is nothing compared to the pain of separation from his family. THE PRICE OF FREEDOM demonstrates how senseless and counter-productive the Communist system was, a system that valued political gain over human rights. For Domokos and his countrymen, their price of freedom exceeded what any human should have to endure. Throughout the book, Domokos reveals in stunning detail the depth of suffering a person can withstand yet still attain an unbelievable level of resiliency. THE PRICE OF FREEDOM is an unforgettable book written with courage and a rare depth of heart. Mr. Domokos never resorts to whining or wallowing in bitterness; he tells his story fairly and honesty, sharing a rare philosophy--and poetry--along the way. This is a valuable book and offers a reading experience not to be missed. Review written by Mary E. Trimble,Author of ROSEMOUNT, A Young Adult Contemporary Westernhttp://www.whidbey.net/marytrimble
