A story that hooks in the reader from the first page, Jessica Dowling
May 26, 2022
I absolutely loved this book.
Most autobiographies I find hard to read, but this one, Impossible: My Story by Stan Walker, was the best. Horrible things happened in Stan’s childhood, but it was great to read how he got through it all. I think it was amazing of Stan to talk about his childhood. It shows courage.
I love how this book is all about Stan’s journey and what he did. I loved how his family was based a lot in the story and how he embraces his culture.
This book hooked me the second I opened it. Inside, it held a true story about a survivor.
Impossible: My Story is pretty much about Stan Walker’s journey and what happened in his childhood. There are a couple of big things in his life that he talks about in this book.
I feel like the author’s aim for this book was to just talk about his experiences and what he did to become who he is today.
I feel horrible for Stan for the things that happened to him. When I was reading, I thought about myself at that age and how I would feel if those things happened to me. Stan never did anything to deserve what happened to him but he grew as a person .
There is nothing really I disliked about the book. I loved how many photos he included. It helped me get a clear image of his life and family.
I enjoyed the cover of the book and how it caught my eye and there were big words so you got the idea. In the book, I felt it was really good how he went up each year.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I hope Stan might write another. I’d be the first to purchase it. I give it a 10 out of 10.
This book also got me into listening to his music. Each song has a deep meaning behind it.
