"TURBULENT, BRUTAL, GRUELING, HEARTWARMING...JUST AMAZING!!!"
Oh my goodness, this book was excellent! It was an emotional masterpiece. It was like being on a rollercoaster that you just couldn't wait to stop. Josef’s journey was an enthralling and sit on the edge of your seat captivating story of one man’s journey trying to discover one’s place and self in a world that contains any man’s desires. Those desires and urges are a driving force and can often having you living a life that you never expected. A dark Journey into the light gives us the facts of Josef’s life, yes, and also the emotions that attend the events of his life, and at the same time it gives us so so much more. It was an angsty mess at some points and you just had to continue to find out what happened. I was only going to start this book and read for a few minutes but I couldn't put it down. This is not a traditional autobiography but I guess that’s implied in the title. So some of the details about his life are hinted at but not elaborated. What's most powerful about Josef's "spiritual autobiography" is that he's not trying to manipulate the reader one way or another. It's entirely possible to be completely changed by the end and yet leave the book disagreeing with him in some areas no less than at the beginning. He doesn't expect his readers to agree with him, or the choices he made he's simply telling his story. And an interesting story it is. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
