A Child Called "It" (Dave Pelzer, #1) by Dave PelzerThis book is very likely made up from start to finish. The events in it read like Pelzer imagined the worst child abuse possible and then said, And it all happened to me! Yeah, right. His brother and grandmother said in an interview that it was all rubbish, too, which casts more doubt upon the whole thing. Pelzer also bought his own book in bulk so the sales numbers would put it on the bestseller list -- he just doesnt have a whole lot of credibility. Perhaps worse than the fact that Pelzer is, shall we say, probably somewhat fluid with the truth, is the fact that hes a dreadful writer. I no longer own the book (didnt put it through a shredder, like I did with A Million Little Pieces, but I got rid of it as quickly as I could), so I cant list any examples here, but I do recall that Ive seen better writing in sixth-grade themes.
After deleting I dont know how many comments calling me names, Im adding this note, because it will save both me and a bunch of other people from wasting time: Ill delete any comments that I consider abusive or that I think constitute ad hominem arguments, so do keep that in mind if youre thinking about composing a long screed. Thanks.
A Child Called It Chapter 1
Toggle navigation. This chapter begins by showing the abusive relationship between Dave and his mother. David is rushing to complete the dishes because he knows he will have to endure his mother's anger, which includes depriving David of food, if he fails to finish his chores on time. Upon coming into the kitchen, his mother immediately begins to beat him. He finishes the dishes and other chores and as a reward, he gets one of his brother's leftover cereal from breakfast. Catherine drives her sons to school. She warns David to tell administration, the bruises they see, were an accident.
This quote comes as Dave is talking about the beginning of his abuse. It seems like a nightmare to him because before this time, his mother had treated him kindly and shown him love. In the early years of his life, he had seen what it was like to be part of a loving family, so this sudden shift to maltreatment and hatred feels like a nightmare from which that he cannot awake. When the police officer tells Dave that his mother will never hurt him again, he is shocked. For the past eight years of his life, his mother's abuse has been all he has known, and he has become accustomed to the idea that other adults would not intervene.
