Comments Unloved: The True Story of a Stolen Childhood

  • Fiona MacDonald

    Painful and utterly heartbreaking to hear this sad story of Peter Roche, the two year old boy who's photograph taken by Lord Snowdon became one of the most iconic prints of the 21st century. His life, surviving as one of nine children to abusive, neglectful parents was one of hunger, sadness and loneliness. His story moved me to tears and I am so proud of how he turned his life around and created a safe and loving environment for his own children.


  • Eryn

    Sad story that makes a few good points about the awareness and willingness of others to intervene in the life of a suffering child.


  • Miriam

    A really good book about a horrible childhood. The book isn't too detailed when it describes what went on, which I was grateful for, and is written very matter-of-factly. It did annoy me a few times that the author repeated himself. Basically ever time he refered to one of his brothers he wrote that "he was out to lunch" meaning he wasn't all there, not right in the head kind of thing. But I would recommend the book for sure.


  • ʚϊɞ Gemma

    Heartbreaking true story of child abuse and how this amazing young man made a life for himself when everything seemed to be against him. Would recommend


  • Janet

    This is the child that was photographed for the N.S.P.C.C. poster yet he was never helped. Such a good book that everyone should read.


  • Donna Simon

    This was Britain’s Poster Child how they got way with what they did to him god knows. A very good read would recommend to anyone


  • Eva Leger

    This is probably the weirdest "review" I've ever left but I didn't finish this book- and still liked it. How can that be one would ask? I don't know. I just didn't feel like finishing it. That's hard to swallow because I'm only freshly at the point where I'll stop reading something I don't like. Never something I do like. Until now. Maybe it's too long. Too drawn out in a way. The story of Peter's childhood is horrible. I'm baffled at "parents" like his. I mean, seriously, how about NOT having k [...]


  • Samantha Pattison

    Recommended read although shocking to think that the parents got away with the amount of abuse inflicted on those poor children . I'd like to be able to say 'at least times have changed' but every other day you read something in the news ! Amazing that the teachers didn't intervene either but then again things were so much different in 1965 to even imagine a 3 or 4 year old child wandering around the streets alone or travelling on a bus The image of the corned beef tin will remain for a long t [...]


  • Amy Baker

    This is truly one of the saddest stories of an abused and neglected child I have ever read. This little boy wanted nothing more than for his parents to care and take care of him but they were unable and unwilling to do so. Adding to the heartbreak is that child protection services in England used the boy's utterly pathetic picture to raise awareness of the problem of child neglect while doing way too little to help him or his family. This isn't a particularly lyrical book, the words don't soar a [...]


  • Dawn Stephens

    Peter had a very tough and abusive childhood and that he managed to survive it is a testament to his strength of character, and it was a touching book, but I did not find his writing easy to read. However I wanted to read through the whole book from start to finish to get a complete picture. I feel that it must have been very tough for him to write so I admire him immensely for writing it.


  • Sharon

    Here is another reason to appreciate my childhood and the simple things in life. No child deserves to be bashed daily, living in constant hunger & fear of his parents. A harrowing account of a stolen childhood living a life so brutal from such a young age with many scars inside and out but with a determination to break this cycle.


  • Glenda

    This was a book that stayed with me for a long time. I wanted to find this little boy and take him home with me. Some people are truly just meant not to have children and his parents were those people. The neglect, torture and suffering he went through are truly horrific. My heart ached for him.


  • Connie

    This is the messiest book I've ever read. The events are in no particular order just sort of thrown together. Which I a shame really. Having said that it was a relatively good book and I'd probably recommend it to people.


  • Maria Daines

    This story touched me deeply and I can still feel the sadness of turning pages on a life so desperately ruined at every milestone. The author is remarkable for his courage and determination to survive.


  • Monica

    i thought the saddest part was the social worker that was not allowed to help themi mean isn't that what they are there for?? wtf but it was not written in a fluid orderde it difficult to finish- so i didn't- hehe


  • Sarah wright

    Got 100 pages in but everytime i picked up the book i kept falling asleep, just didn't keep my attention.


  • Rona

    Heartbreaking, but enthralling read. Very hard to put down.


  • Catherine

    such a sad heart touching story. read it from cover to cover without putting it down
