fault in yourselfI Am David by Anne Holm is a very interesting and emotionally powerful story about a young boy David was born and raised in a prison when one day, he is given a backpack and a few instructions to escape and find his way to Denmark During this time, we follow David s adventure and his thoughts He is programmed to not trust anyone and to escape as soon as he smells any danger coming his way Throughout his journey, we can see that David goes through a lot of hardship and he meets many people, even though he fails to connect with them or entrust them with anything Good people are somehow always there to help him, and I have to be honest and mention that I found this to be incredibly convenient to the story and in no way believable.Besides this fact, we get to see David be his true self at all times, which is something I enjoyed about this book There are instances where he has to make choices that require him to pretend and be something he is not, and he chooses to stay true to himself Some times, these choices mean he has to give up the comforts of his new found life, a bed to sleep in and food that is always on the tableAnd if you never allow other people to influence what you re really like, then you ve something no one can take from you not even theyDavid s adventure will teach him many things.Some of these traits he already knew of by seeing them in others, but now he will learn to possess them himself Honesty, bravery, kindness But there is one thing David never knew before true happinessJoy passed, but happiness never completely disappeared a touch of it remain to remind one it had been thereEven though I loved this book for all the right reasons, I couldn t help but notice the red flags The parents in this book seemed to believe David s ridiculous story about the circus They also invited him into his home without any doubts And the most important part David was a manipulator Getting close to the little girl, as well as he showed open hatred towards one of the boys And the parents were aware of all this, and still didn t seem that concerned I understand where David came from the way he behaved was all he s ever known What I cannot understand was how the parents were portrayed in the book.The ending seemed quite fast paced, even rushed The outcome was predictable I still manage to find the whole story unbelievable though I recommend it to children, for the lesson of being yourself However, I don t think that as an adult you would enjoy it An incredibly sensitive and charming book leaving a deep impression , about the voyage across Europe , of David , a boy escaped from a Communist Gulag in Eastern Europe.Descriptive and insightful.Particularly beautiful was the illustration of David s relationship with Maria the girl who looked like a flower who David rescues from a fire , in Italy.A classic for all ages I had first seen this movie and had a feeling the book would be great also Although the plots differedthan I thought they would, I thoroughly enjoyed both the movie and the book In the book, I liked how you getinsight into David s thoughts He is a remarkable boy, to say the least.It is a young adult novel and I think the author took some liberties with the plot that adults won t buy I liked the way they fixed that in the movie All in all, I would highly recommend both

camp in Eastern Europe He knows nothing of the outside world But when he is given the chance to escape, he seizes it With his vengeful enemies hot on his heels, David struggles to cope in this strange new world, where his only resources are a compass, a few crusts of bread, his two aching feet, and some vague advice to seek refuge in Denmark Is that enough to survive David s extraordinary odyssey is dramatically chronicled in Anne Holm s classic about the meaning of freedom and the power of hope A young boy escapes from a concentration camp somewhere in eastern Europe and walks and hitchhikes his way to Denmark He s lived his whole life in camp so he doesn t know anything about the outside world, doesn t even know about money or how to eat properly at a table he prays to a god of rivers and streams and is afraid of being caught by them He s totally clueless, yet manages to survive this whole long journey, despite getting captured again And then a bizarre coincidence at the end A young boy escapes from a concentration camp somewhere in eastern Europe and walks and hitchhikes his way to Denmark He s lived his whole life in camp so he doesn t know anything about the outside world, doesn t even know about money or how to eat properly at a table he prays to a god of rivers and streams and is afraid of being caught by them He s totally clueless, yet manages to survive this whole long journey, despite getting captured again And then a bizarre coincidence at the end leads him to his family, whom he never knew It s a weird fable like story I didn t really enjoy it because I thought the character was unrealistic, and I would have preferred real place names and historic facts or situations, not the vague stuff here I compare it to The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, which is far better and leavesof an emotional impact Finally A superb book landed in my hands I was completely mesmerized and utterly clinging to the story s journey, especially on the last 10 pages I tell ya, David would be a great poster boy for integrity I loved his character development Too good to be true as he may be, the walk of his life was a message of love, life, and prospect Brilliant I agree with The Horn Book, Read it, read it Be warned though, brace your heart My quote ables I don t know anything How can I stay free wh Finally A superb book landed in my hands I was completely mesmerized

can I stay free when I don t know what everybody else knows I don t even know what s good to eat and what s poisonous pg 38 In the camp, thinking would have made life unbearable, but when you were free, it was necessary pg 54 God of the green pastures and the still waters, I am David and I choose You as my God But You must please understand that I can t do anything for You, because I ve always been in a wicked place where no one could think or learn or get to know anything, and so I know nothing about what people ought to do for their God But the David Johannes used to talk about knew that even if he couldn t see You, You were there and were stronger than any men I pray You will help me so that they won t catch me again Then perhaps I can gradually find out about You so that I can do something in return I am David, Amen pg 68 69 Johannes said that when you very much want something you haven t got, you no longer care for what you have got I m not sure that I understand, but I suppose he meant that things are only worth having if you think they are pg 83 84 But he would have to do it on his own since he had not found anything he could do in return, he could not go on asking God for things it would be greedy, and God might very soon grow tired of a boy who was always frightened and could never do anything for himself pg 94 God of the green pastures and the still waters, please don t help me I want to do it by myself so that You ll know I ve found something I can do for You I am David Amen pg 106 Joy passed, but happiness never completely disappeared a touch of it would always remain to remind one it had been there It was happiness that made one smile, then He would always remember that pg 113 Politeness is something you owe other people, because when you show a little courtesy, everything becomes easier and better But first and foremost, it s something you owe yourself You are David And if you never allow other people to influence what you re really like, then you ve something no one can take from you not even they pg 121 It s horrible and wicked and no one has any right to take other people prisoner Everybody has a right to his life and freedom, and anyone who takes them away has lost his own right to be a human being pg137 The way you spoke was a reflection of how you thought, and that could not possibly have anything to do with whether you were a tramp or whether you had somewhere to live and had many things of your own pg 169 All suffering has an end, David, if only you wait long enough pg 194 Johannes had once said that violence and cruelty were just a stupid person s way of making himself felt, because it was easier to use your hands to strike a blow than to use your brain to find a logical and just solution to a problem pg 201 Never let me hear you say it s someone else s fault It often is, but you must never shirk your own responsibility You can t change others, but you can do something about a fault in yourself pg 211 So one could get something for nothing after all pg 234Jinky is Reading I Am David is a great book to read It is a story about a little boy who has been in a concentration camp his whole life David had

12 year old, raised in a prison camp, is allowed to escape with instructions to go north to freedom From the drab, depressing surroundings of the prison camp to the wide world of freedoms, colors, smells, scenery, being clean, and being honest, David cautiously learns about the world around him This book is a learning adventure at becoming true to one s self At an early age, this book had a profound effect on my life, David made me stop and appreciate the little things that are such David, a 12 year old, raised in a prison camp, is allowed to escape with instructions to go north to freedom From the drab, depressing surroundings of the prison camp to the wide world of freedoms, colors, smells, scenery, being clean, and being honest, David cautiously learns about the world around him This book is a learning adventure at becoming true to one s self At an early age, this book had a profound effect on my life, David made me stop and appreciate the little things that are such common conveniences in life At one point in the book, a boy beats up David, but David doesn t fight back Angrily, the boy asked why he didn t fight back and David said, Because if I hit you back, I d be no better than you are I d be just as rotten and worthless, and I d have no right to be free It s a lesson all of us can incorporate in our lives This is always the first book I recommend to anyone My ALL TIME favorite children s book since the 3rd grade when my teacher read it to the class I own two copies and have even underlined some of my favorite quotes throughout the book This book taught me gratitude This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I first read this book as s teen, and was deeply moved by it Rereading it as an adult, it becomes clear both how deeply damaged this young boy is by his experience, and how important his faith becomes for him I always cry when I read this book If you have not read it, some things to be aware of David is an admirable character, but he s not entirely likeable Nor should he be, given his experiences.The concentration camp is a Stalinist one This is why David is so clear that only books written I first

I always cry when I read this book If you have not read it, some things to be aware of David is an admirable character, but he s not entirely likeable Nor should he be, given his experiences.The concentration camp is a Stalinist one This is why David is so clear that only books written before 1917 may contain the truth But the dehumanizing effect of the camp is the same regardless of the political system.It takes, I think, a special child to really appreciate this book It may seem too quiet, introverted and understated for modern tastes But those who do love it, love it deeply An example I suggested it to a mom for her son, who was about 12 she told me afterwards that, as he was reading, he would say, Mom, listen to this and them begin reading aloud to her Both mother and son loved this story I do, too
