    We read about the suffering in other countries, we send money to feed the less fortunate, and believe we have done our job, but what about the children who are caught up in a brutal regime that doesn’t care about the lives of its most precious commodity? God’s Buried Children by Daniel Farcas, is not fiction, it is not ancient history, it is the story of his life in Romania as an orphaned child with no one to care for him accept his family of forgotten street urchins, who have gone underground t We read about the suffering in other countries, we send money to feed the less fortunate, and believe we have done our job, but what about the children who are caught up in a brutal regime that doesn’t care about the lives of its most precious commodity? God’s Buried Children by Daniel Farcas, is not fiction, it is not ancient history, it is the story of his life in Romania as an orphaned child with no one to care for him accept his family of forgotten street urchins, who have gone underground to avoid beatings and worse. After escaping the horrors of a state funded orphanage, young Daniel must beg, borrow or steal to survive. The one constant is the loyalty of his friends, they are his family and right or wrong they stand by his side. These children are cast off like old garbage, their deaths mean nothing, some go mad with the war and oppression all around them. Some reach to their god to save them, some begin to think they are god. Daniel’s saving grace was a young American girl risking her life to send basic human needs to the Romanians caught in the hell of politics and communism. It was her willingness to aid him, her budding romance with him, along with the help of his closest friend that changed his life forever. Mr. Farcas has used his journal as a child to put his story together. It is NOT pretty, it is NOT easy to read, it is a nightmare far too heinous to believe, but it happened, it still happens and he is trying to raise awareness in hopes to save any child living in the hell he once knew. This is not a precisely drawn out tale, it is sometimes chaotic and jagged, not quite fitting together in a neat little package. For me, this made it far more emotionally gripping and meaningful. Writing in a language that is not his mother tongue, he has told his tale from his very soul. To say I am moved, would be an understatement. To say these children, no matter what, were not heroes in their own right would be an injustice. Do I recommend reading this? Yes, any errors will melt away and become white noise.

    This is a tough book to review. It's got grammar issues and jumps around quite often, but despite these things it still managed to pull me in and make me keep reading. The story of a group of kids abandoned and disenfranchised by their country, victims of a regime that left their country full of unwanted orphans, it manages to pack a lot of intensity and humanity into what could have been a pretty crummy read overall.

The story of a group of kids abandoned and disenfranchised by their country, victims of a regime that left their country full of unwanted orphans, it manages to pack a lot of intensity and humanity into what could have been a pretty crummy read overall. Being the story of homeless orphans and in the midst of communist oppression it gets very bleak and has an awful lot of blood and violence in between bits of human survival and perseverance. Think of books like The Basketball Diaries or The Butcher Boy with their sort of off kilter and jagged timelines and you might have some idea of the tone overall. Despite the clear issues it really is a worthy read and I would love to see it get a nice polish to clear away the elements that distract from that.

    I received this book free for the purposes of review but despite that kindness I give my honest opinions below. On the positive side, the author has a supremely potent story to tell. If this really is the author's adaptation of his own journal as the preface states, then he's really been through a lot and he portrays that lifetime of experiences with reasonable vividness. To the negative side, the writing is in need of a good, thorough editing.

Further, the ending seems rather inane and whitewashed. All that grimness ends with a very Hollywood conclusion that makes me rather wish I hadn't bothered to read it.

Our story begins in a first person narrative but his name isn't revealed until the third chapter. Before I continue I need to lay out all the characters because for the first time this wasn't a hero's story but Everyone's story all the characters are either orphans or part of the orphanage. Spot:ironic as the name it's true,some kids threw a rock at him and therfore left a huge "spot" or injury on the side of his head and therfore spot was created. Scabby:Has scab marks all over his body and due to the reason he used to scratch them constantly the marks stopped healing. Burner:Was burnt by his father in oil (accidentally) so his mother couldn't look at him anymore and decided to leave him an orphanage. Nicu:Looks like a famous regime dictator "Nicolae Ceausce", nicu's mother was raped by nicolae's sons one of them so the assumption is that he's the dictators grandson. Carrion:Skin diseased boy with extremely strong faith in jesus. Tuca:Used to live with grandmother but her house was burned down (oldest girl among the orphans). Vlad:Born an orphan,accidentally slept in the swears and his ears and nose were eaten by rats. Slaps your face if you stare too long. Crazy:Is actually crazy and has weird dreams. Stammer:He was born to a poor parents therefore couldn't afford a special school,parents left him in an orphanage and never came back. Smokes uncontrollably to block out stammer. Sleeper?:Just sleeps(legit). Jail:His father went to jail for killing his mother. Blackie & sister crow: coloured black girls with gorgeous green eyes. One eye:Eyes raked out by the janitor. Nelu:Deaf. Janitor:Motherfucking arse whole who should have been shot dead. Ex sailor,lost his life savings on gambling hence works at the orphanage. physical and sexual harasser. He gets young orphan girls and give them a lollipop before and after he's raped them, and would put little kids hands inside a pressing machine so he could hear their bones snap (sicko). Old lady:Likes to hurt the kids. Geologist:Ex professor at top university in Romania but lost everything due to the fact he rebelled against the communism. Now begger (side character but helps complete the story further on) Horse:Creepy kid who no one talks to and lives in a mountain of garbage. DANIEL : Told from his point of view and ........figure it out its quite overwhelming. First of all you're wondering why I crossed out the names on some of them well you have to read the book to figure it out, but it's definitely a hint. So our story is about these orphaned kids who are getting by with what they have , just barely holding on and each child had an outstanding personality and truth be told my heart did hurt when I read this book though I'd read it all over again. Now only four kids out of the rest can read and write Carrion (reads the good book), Vald (writes his own manual scripts on dirty yellow pages and is extremely protective of them), Crazy (wants to forget how to read and write) and finally spot (finds an old library card which isn't his and the librarian knows it doesn't belongs to him but let's him him reads all the books he wants because of his passion for literature). As the story progresses the only three kids go into the Oracle. Oracle a secret room where apparently you can see you're past or future and you can only go in there once, it's guarded by an old man Eventually all the kids find a way to leave the the orphanage and live in the sewers where from there horse leaves to live on a pile of garbage. Each one of these charters had a story to tell and every 1st or second paragraph had a story,every character was punched in the face by brutality and hardship and good lord did I cringe , my heart went to a billion pieces. If I had to put this book in two words ..... DISGUSTINGLY REAL And I say that with the utmost respect. The things that happened is gut wrenching and even though it's long gone but to think that things like this did/could/would happen is just sickening, we're humans but we're a lot brutal than any animal or thing out there and I bet stuff like this happens and it all goes unheard. That's the main reason this book completely shattered me reality smacked on my face. But after all the troubles ........It was all over. In the end I have a quote to tie it together "“Human reason can excuse any evil.”  ― Veronica Roth, Divergent

    I received an electronic copy of this book in return for a review. And so I give my honest opinion below. I've edited point 4 below, the author informed me that he has followed up with some people from Romania to explain how he is aware of things he wasn't there for. Overall, I'm not a fan. The spelling and grammar makes the book difficult to read, the pacing is off and I couldn't sympathize with the characters. 1. The spelling and grammar in here is atrocious. There are many misspelled words that I received an electronic copy of this book in return for a review. And so I give my honest opinion below.

The spelling and grammar makes the book difficult to read, the pacing is off and I couldn't sympathize with the characters. 1. The spelling and grammar in here is atrocious. There are many misspelled words that could have been caught by asking someone to proofread the dang thing. Mistakes happen but the joy is rapidly sucked out of reading if I need to decipher what words the author intended. 2. The book's all over the place. Scenes open and close without explaining what is going on or any sense of closure. Characters are never established or developed and everyone is constantly going on some faux philosophical rant. My favorite one was when someone said that people only exist as the memories that others have of them. Draw that out and you see that people only exist as the memories that other memories hold. 3. The character's are deeply unpleasant. I know they're homeless orphans rejected by their families and society but I can't even bring myself to pity them (to be fair, I'm not that great myself). In particular there is Vlad, who is described as "actually a good guy" two pages before he murders two men in cold blood. At another point he is described as a "benevolent God." He murders 6 people, 5 in cold blood. Now I'm not saying that an anti hero or villain protagonist is a bad thing but when the book sings the praises of a cold blooded murderer that is a bad thing. Apparently, this book is based on the author's recollections of his time growing up in Romania and some return trips to Romania to speak with some of the people he met. Initially I was annoyed by the inclusion of scenes the author couldn't possibly be there for but apparently they're based on his later meetings with others. These scenes are still written in the third person when the rest of the book is written first person. Stylistic differences I suppose but the contrast between the scenes the author was there for and these other scenes was annoyingly jarring. There's good stuff here. It paints an evocative picture of homeless life in Romania in the 1980's and could make a statement how when society doesn't treat people as people they will become monsters. With a lot of polishing and a good editor a good book could be written. But with the grammar and spelling issues, the tone and pacing and the praise for the cold blooded murderer I wasn't impressed.

The way that he is able to describe the scenes and characters . He is able to make them come alive. But then again this IS A TRUE story. You never know.

Now before I leave you all .. I will give you the what the author has to say about his own book . So please do read on!!! This book is the journal of a Romanian homeless orphan that escaped the streets. It is a healing book. Life wrote this book. All I can offer you is my reality, my simple truth. The book burst out of my journal as its own identity after 20 years of weekly confessions. I guess you couldn’t really understand me and my friends without reading this book. What happened under the streets of Bucharest will sink into your mind and take you back into those dark communist times.

    I read this book for free via Goodreads. I was interested in the subject matter as I am a missionary working with street children. The book definitely needs properly editing before any more people make comments about this in their reviews! I was actually shocked by some of the content and find it difficult to believe that these are the authors actual experiences. It reads more like a book of fiction with many killings that seem to pass unnoticed. I accept that these things might happen when atten I read this book for free via Goodreads.

I accept that these things might happen when attention is diverted elsewhere during a revolution but the author almost justifies the cold blooded murder by friends of his from the street world. I couldn't bring myself to read more than about two thirds of the book as I just found it too depressing, too violent, containing too much bad language and with a lack of hope. Maybe this came further on in the book but I couldn't bear to finish it. I rarely make such negative comments on here but I hope to save someone else's mind from this material. If the experiences are genuine, I really hope the author has now found peace and can move on from his terrible childhood.

I was up for any book and reading the description I was very drawn. The true story about Romanian orphans that had survived the communist regime. The book proved to be quite a revelation for me. The author himself is one of the orphans that were dumped in a Romanian orphanage during the communist regime where abortions were banned and unplanned or just kids people didn’t want to raise would be done away with. The orphanage itself is my idea of hell with a devil like old lady whom the kids call Mama and an equally scary and vile old sailor that torments kids in ways that can give you nightmares. Our story follows a group of such orphans who run away from the wretched place and live in the underground sewers finding food and money in ways we would never have imagined. Slowly the group thins out as the weak and unfortunate start dying. The communist regime dies too and with it a few rare lucky ones get their life back. The story of each kid, why they ended up in the orphanage and how they die is all so heart wrenching. You cannot just read it and not feel strings tugging at your heart. At some points you cannot decide what is wrong and what is right. There are many moments when you stop and think what you do at such moments and how you whether you did it wrong and also if you would be changing that now. Out of all characters Vlad is probably the most sweet, humane, strong and sensitive character. He stays in your heart long after you finish reading the book and even those great lines start fading. He pops in your head every time you look at a beggar in the street or a kid being mistreated. He makes you cry when you think about what happened to him and why. He is probably the most selfless of all kids involved in the story. I would love to go into details and spill about all the moving, astounding and frightening incidents but that would spoil the book for you. I would urge everyone to read this book and try to understand that the world is not just about us and our problems. There are people who would kill to just have what we have, even a piece of it. So next time we get a chance to do something for anyone who needs any help we should go for it! Please try this book it might just change your life. If possible please do contribute to the wonderful cause the author has set up for orphans.

    Reading these memories by an orphaned Romanian boy growing up in the 1980’s is a harrowing experience: Daniel is one of the many children left to suffer in one of the state orphanages, where brutality and neglect have replaced humanity and care.

Not only is the secret police part of their daily lives, but also disease, hunger, drugs, and death. The only thing not part of their lives is someone t Reading these memories by an orphaned Romanian boy growing up in the 1980’s is a harrowing experience: Daniel is one of the many children left to suffer in one of the state orphanages, where brutality and neglect have replaced humanity and care. He and a ragbag of other children escape to eke out a living in the sewers of the capital, Bucharest. Not only is the secret police part of their daily lives, but also disease, hunger, drugs, and death. The only thing not part of their lives is someone to care for them and keep them safe. When revolution disposes of Nicolae Ceaușescu this does not mean justice is replacing the previous injustice – at least not for the people at the bottom of society: The children living in the sewers are still tormented by the same people that patrolled during the communist era. Vlad, Crazy, Crow (they rarely know their names), and the rest of the orphans decide to find out why they were abandoned and to hand out their own justice where it is needed. Daniel is dreaming of a different life and when he meets the young American aid worker Mariana he is touched by love for the first time and maybe there is a future for him, after all… God's Buried Children is amazing reading with all the suspense needed to make you continue reading. The quirky language puzzled me in the beginning, but what else would make sense when the story is told by a boy who has never been taught to read and write? The mistakes and the tentative use of some phrases and words only help to paint a picture of something that should never have been allowed to happen – the betrayal of a country’s children. This is not light reading -but important. Romania is today part of the European Union but only a few decades ago it was one of the most impoverished and isolated totalitarian states on the European continent. By not forgetting these children maybe we can stop it from happening again. Hopefully.

The most difficult for me in the book's reading were the passages which explained how those closest to young Daniel had been forced into unspeakable acts against others in the name of protecting themselves and survival. The fact this is counted as more nonfiction than fiction makes for a heart rending read knowing that this type of lifestyle is happening for those so very young. I believe the story is very engrossing, the language is raw, strong and not for the light of heart. The author created an engrossing read which speaks for many of those who were lost.

    This book is told from the perspective one child growing up in Romania during late 1980's. I gotta admit that my heart just ached for all of these children. Many of these children ran away from the orphanages to live on the street as homeless becoming beggars and thieves just to survive. I can only imagine what it was like growing up during this time period. I certainly wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy either. I admire these children's courage to stick up for themselves.

    I liked the end of the book. It has a bit of the American Dream in it. It's not the American Dream in terms of financial success, but rather in terms of finding a free world. It's a story of a second chance. Daniel let go of his hurtful past and he embraced his future in that new blessed American country, where he and his new family could have a good life.

This vivid portrayal leads to one inevitable thought that orphanages generally speaking are still sitting in the dark middle ages with the same mind set. Move on, let there be light into the system, where orphans can breath and blossom into fullness of life.

    A very difficult read but my studies on Communism concur with the result that happen to a people who adopt a way of life that excludes God.

    Just finished this book in one reading and I still can not believe it is a true story. The pain the torture and the trials these chidlren lilved through. I always knew it was harsh in war torn countruies but to treat the children as if they are salvage or junk is unreal. The ending is not onloy heart wrenching but the entire story will hold you until the end, making you want to be angry,sad and even cry.

This story is about children during the communist era that tore their country their lives and everything apart. A must read. there are a lot of mistypes or typos but i believe it because you are supposed to read it as if hearing from the childs mouth.

    Other than needing the services of a professional editor, Danial Farcas has written a profoundly thoughtful and spellbinding novel of historical fiction. I was caught up in the lives of Daniel and the other sewer children from the first page to the last. The plight of the children was frighteningly realistic, and I was simultaneously sympathetic to and horrified by their actions. The Buried Children is a short read and well worth the time.

    Truly a fascinating tale! The book is a never-ending thrill ride, and it's hard to believe that all of these things have happened to the same person. The constant switching between past and present tense makes it a bit tough to read, and it can be a bit hard to follow the transition from story to story, but all in all it's a book worth reading!

But that is all I/they know & the way I/they were treated. Tuca (cutter; self-mutilation) is an older girl. The janitor takes her to a closet quite often. Daniel makes his escape from the orphanage, on the streets of Bucharest, Romania maybe things aren’t any better. Carrion had an underground shrine dedicated to Jesus. Blackie now has a B/F Vladimir (soldier). Or does she? Daniel meets Guardian (former art collector), Oracle (abyss) & Geologist (former professor at the University, old beggar, died). Fatty (cop) son had died so he along with Costel (new militia) Fatty decided to take his grief out on the homeless children. Stammered was the victim & died quickly. A revolution had erupted & Nicolae Ceausescu (communist Dictator) was executed. Maybe things will get better in Romania. Daniel seems to have the hot’s for Mariana (S/C) who is on a Humanitarian mission from the US. Vlad, Crazy, Nicu, Jail, Tuca, & Daniel went back to the orphanage. They really came to get their files. Low/behold the Janitor was still there. Things did not turn out well for him (eye for eye). Crow reveals what was done to the sewers the homeless children live in. What part will Mariana play in this horrific story? “Because, a story is like a knife: you sharpen it, and you sharpen it, and when you get to use it, it will go deeper in the reader’s brains…” “A tooth for a tooth, and an eye for an eye. Talion Law!” I’m quite sure each & everyone these children suffered from PTSD. As did the adults they met along the way who managed to survive. They tried to make sense & rambled as they tried to peace their life story together. You ended this story way too soon. A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A fairly well written narrated autobiography book. It wasn’t always very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish, but never a dull moment. There were several grammar/typo errors & out of line sequence sentences, but no repetitive written thoughts. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make great movie (Holocaust), PP presentation or mini TV series (A & E, History channel). Proof read it & you got it made, I will have to rate it at 4/5 stars. Thank you for the free book (Author, Goodreads) Tony Parsons MSW (Washburn)

A bit odd since I probably have not reviewed things for a couple years. On to the review: The Bad Things 1. Everyone commented on this so I will make it quick. Grammar and spelling. Since this book is not even out yet I am not counting this as terrible. Get someone to edit for this and voila it's fixed. 2. Switching the view of the story, first to third person...etc. This got a little confusing as I didn't quite know what happen between the part I was reading and then it goes *** and switches to a different viewpoint. I had to go back a couple of times to try to figure out what happen, this pulls the reader out of the story. 3. The story is about some awful things done to children, how they survived and the terrible things they had to do. I think for the readers to feel these things the book needs to give the characters more depth and more understanding. This way I would net feel like Vlad is a terrible freaking person when he does some of these things. The issue is, yes he was a terrible person to some people, but he was a savior to others. I saw this as logical, but I couldn't feel it. 4. Give the characters some more depth by staying with each one just a bit more. If this story is a true telling with little fiction added in then it should be told with more feeling no matter how hard....a la The Lost Child and Running With Scissors It was hard for me to read this book because there wasn't much feeling, things were crazy and sad and deplorable and someone escaped. But it didn't captivate or hold me...I needed more insight. Even though this is through a child's eyes, the author has learned more as he has grown and should try to explain those child like feelings...maybe, or something similar. The Good Things 1. Incredibly traumatic and bracing story. I never knew any of this even occurred. If I had the capacity to adopt a child in Romania I would absolutely do my best and get on the list right now. It makes me want to stop all terrible things to children. A lot of things want me to stop bad things from happening to children. No child should ever be put in the situation where they have to live like that. 2. If the things in this book were redone to alleviate all of the things I wrote above I think it would have brought me to tears. This is an incredible story and I believe it should be put out there. A bit of editing and this book has the capacity to awaken awareness and become a five star reality check to more people.

    Daniel Farcas’ father was a chauffeur for the American Embassy during the Communist reign before 1989. His mother was Romanian. His father left Romania before he was born, leaving his mother to raise him alone. When she died, no one wanted him, so he was sent to an orphanage in Bucharest. God’s Buried Children is Daniel’s journal account of life in the orphanage and of life on the streets, living in the sewers of Bucharest as a homeless teenager. The descriptions of the daily happenings in the or Daniel Farcas’ father was a chauffeur for the American Embassy during the Communist reign before 1989. His mother was Romanian. His father left Romania before he was born, leaving his mother to raise him alone. When she died, no one wanted him, so he was sent to an orphanage in Bucharest. God’s Buried Children is Daniel’s journal account of life in the orphanage and of life on the streets, living in the sewers of Bucharest as a homeless teenager. The descriptions of the daily happenings in the orphanage were so brutal it is unimaginable to think that the orphanage caregivers were put in place to care for the well-being of children. We are told of the basement punishment where if you fell asleep in the dark, you ran the risk of the rats eating your fingers and toes. Daily rapings were not uncommon. It was safer to run away and live on the street than stay in the orphanage. Life in the sewer was not easy either. Daniel lived together with several friends from the orphanage. They banded together as family, helping one another out as best they could. In 1989 the revolution against the communist regime of Nicolae Ceauscu arose and placed the country in upheaval. We learn of some of the stories of what happened to some of his friends and discover where Daniel ended up after the Anticommunist Revolution. This novel was written in English which is Daniel’s second language. As such, the grammar and spelling reflect this, making the book somewhat difficult to read at times, though the ideas do come across. In some ways it increases the authenticity of the book because it adds to the voice of the speaker who is from a different land and shows that he speaks with an accent, rather than speaking with perfect English. The brutal conditions in which Daniel lived are hard to read about but the book is inspirational in that he escaped from those horrible conditions and is using the funds from the sales of his book and his time to help families from other countries make their way to the US through http://www.MyAmericanKids.com. God’s Buried Children is a testament to the courage and strength that those children had in order to survive through the years in the orphanage and during life in the sewers. I gave this book 4 stars out of 5. Thank you to the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.

The book is a sad book, but sometimes life is sad. He writes of the effort to increase Romania's population. Nicolae Ceausescu, communist dictator added Decree 770 in 1967 that made it a crime to have an abortion or use contraception. So many children, not wanted by their parents were abandoned and put in state run orphanages. That was as bad as being abandoned since they were abused and severely neglected. Later those children become Bucharest's homeless. THE BURIED CHILDREN is a very dear story of an autobiography of Daniel Farcas. Daniel Farcas was one of those unwanted homeless children who lived with children who had no names except what other children called them. He escaped the cellar he lived in and went to the streets getting to know the older homeless. I have to say that this book is not for the weak of heart. Taking an unwanted child, because of a law preventing contraception or abortion, and leaving them to scrounge on their own. The author tells of living through the Ceausescu regime, the Anticommunist Revolution of 1989, meeting a young American girl who helps him go to the U.S. He eventually finds himself. He made a wonderful statement of failing and keep on trying until things get better. The book is extremely emotional. Hopefully the book will be read and looked at, realizing that this author is not very familiar with the English language. The book gives you the flavor of the Romanian speech. As I said before, the book is very sad. I believe the author felt it important to get this message out, instead of how the reader felt about commas and misspells. I would suggest this book to anyone who wants to read an autobiography of a young child that had been abandoned and found his way to a new life, regardless of the writing errors. I wasn't offended by the email asking for a review. I get them all the time. If a person doesn't want to review the book, they don't have to. It's their choice. I'm glad to give my opinion if it can help an author sell another book, or keep someone from buying a book that they won't like. I was given a complimentary copy of THE BURIED CHILDREN from the author Daniel Farcas for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.

This was definitely not a happy story...it was a horrible one and I agree with a title of a chapter 'Born in Hell.' Wow, what a description of this child's horrible journey into manhood as he grow up in this unwanted orphan in communist Romania. It was quite interesting how this novel is about Daniel growing up in an orphanage then escapes....living in sewers then coming to America....then trying to survive where he was not wanted. This is a intensed read of the memoirs of this author. My impression of this novel... I found it very emotional interesting and even heartbreaking read for anyone to have to go through and even more for one to have to read about. This is definitely not a read for everyone for the mature audience. I know their were grammar problems, however after all is said and done this author has given us a honest worth while and sincere accounting of his journey into manhood.

After first checking out the reviews it's had, mostly commenting on bad grammar, spelling, etc., I decided to read this story as if the author is just telling me his story as best he can. It is his true account as one of many children whose world and home had fallen apart as a child when Romania came under control of communist dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu in in 1967. As a young child he survived in a locked-down basement of an orphanage, with little food or warmth, or even much opportunity of the freedom to go outside to sunshine. His memories are vague; all he thought at that time was that no one wanted him, not parents, relatives, or the people managing the orphanage. Thus, he feels he's been buried already in a graveyard. One day he had the opportunity to step through the locked doors and walk into the sunshine, but only briefly and then thrust back with the other suffering children in the dark. Finally, not knowing why, he woke in a hospital. He manages to leave the hospital through an unlocked backdoor and sees the gray communist city of Bucharest. He becomes a beggar hoping for just crumbs. He was mostly ignored by people who would provide a home to a stray dog rather than street kids who lived below the city in sewer tunnels. Many of the young adults raised with him live there with him in filth. Yes, this is a sad story of reality of those innocents during a time of politically warring nations who brutalized the masses. It's a story of salvation of one blessed man who was swept away from hell into a caring, loving American family whose daughter rescued Daniel. I could not stop reading this story which Daniel Farca has shared with readers. A story which never will be forgotten.

The author, himself one of them, describes the brutality of the orphanage, with its sadistic staff. Later the little group find themselves living beneath the streets of Bucharest in "a quagmire that people call 'The city of the living dead' made out of intricate subway tunnels...where homeless children...sleep among steaming wet pipes that shields them from the cold outside." Despised and ignored by the population, living by their wits in a city of violent militia, we see the effects of their experiences, notably the craving for revenge by some: "Make no mistake! We are at war! They are out to kill us with their indifference towards us! They're killing children..." And they certainly do, with only a few of the original crowd making it through But also the basic desire for the things ordinary kids have: when they manage to acquire their files, one of them exclaims "Birthdays! We have birthdays! All of us, not just the rich kids!" The very subject matter made this quite a compulsive read, although sometimes the constant violence makes one lose track of who's doing what (and query whether it happened QUITE like that.) The author's English isn't the best although I didn't find it really spoilt the story. A very intense read: possibly the fairly large cast of characters means that - apart from Daniel and Vlad - we don't really get to know the others and consequently while we empathise with them they remain largely strangers. An important story that needs telling.

It is written with intelligence and insight into the darker places of human thinking, from the very first chapter you are put right into the scene. Words are carefully chosen, bringing to mind the horror and misery in language that never gets wordy, morose or brooding. Perhaps how it is starkly and plainly stated is why the words have such a punch. How do you survive and retain your humanity in the chaos and dark times? Daniel shows us the way is a story that is equally horrible and hopeful. It highlights the bad and the good in the same way, the stark bleakness stated as facts by a voice that still has some hope. Be warned, some of the scenes are very hard to read but in the context of the story, they are not over the top and they make sense. At times, it is hard to read and hits you like an arrow to the heart and soul because you know such things really do happen but then the actual humanity shines through in the next section and this jarring look into the best and worst of people is a compelling and thoughtful read all told from the viewpoint of a homeless child looking for a better future in a world that had all but forgotten he exists. The book lacks the polish of a professionally published book but the heart of the book shines through and that is why I give it four stars; the story itself captivated. This is an author who has a gift and I think that they will continue to improve the style and grammar issues that this book has. I would love to see what else the author will be publishing in the future as their writing style evolves and matures. I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    This book broke my heart a million times, but I am so glad I read it. This was probably the most difficult book I have ever read. The first few chapters especially were ones that I would read a few pages, put it down, and try to put it out of my mind,and then days later pick it up again, unable to forget the haunting story written by Daniel Farcas.

The first few chapters especially were ones that I would read a few pages, put it down, and try to put it out of my mind,and then days later pick it up again, unable to forget the haunting story written by Daniel Farcas. Most of the book passes without the realization that, although this is a true story, it appears to be the story of the life of the author. Both heartbreaking and heartwarming...heartbreaking for what he and all the other children in Romania endured and continue to endure. Heart warming to see how far he has come and how he has been able to heal some of the wounds of his childhood. Coming from a life anchored safely in middle America, it is jarring to read about how different a life can be. We know this, deep down, know we are spoiled here, but to read the recollections of a lost boy in Bucharest brings reality crashing in. I can honestly say that the early parts of this book were not pleasant to read, although the writing was excellent. Reading about his childhood reminds me of reading about the Holocaust or other dark times in our history, And history can be very dark. I want to thank the author for giving me the opportunity to see into his past and to celebrate his present. The author provided me with a complimentary copy of his book in order to provide an honest and unbiased review. I took the time to read it out of respect for his request and received no other compensation for this review, other than the book, and the enrichment to my life that reading it brought!

That equal treatment world wide is probably something that will never come in my lifetime. Maybe my son will see it, or a grandchild unborn. I knew that abortion was an option when I got pregnant, and I didn't take it. I spent my life as a single parent, raised a son I am proud of and while things were never easy they were never this bad. I could always find a place to sleep, get a warm meal, and find the ability to educate myself and raise my lot in life and by doing that raise my son's. I also had a show down with my father. We raise our children and send them out in the world praying that what happened in this book is something they will never have to face, and if they find it they will step forward and say stop no more, yet it still happens no matter what we try. Give more then you take and maybe the world will forgive humanities great failures. I hope that Daniel and his family have been blessed and grown into a loving and happy family that welcomes and looks toward the dawn with hope.

It has problems with sentence construction, grammar, typing errors, other stuff. It might have problems with truth. The narrative thread is at times difficult to follow.

This Okay, let’s get a few realities out of the way right at the start. Using universal book-editing criteria, this story has problems. It has problems with sentence construction, grammar, typing errors, other stuff. It might have problems with truth. The narrative thread is at times difficult to follow. I’m of the opinion none of that is important. Still with me? From the very first page, the raw stark emotion and reality of Romania under Communist rule in the 1950’s, reaches out and grabs you. This is a scary work. It is written from a deep heart-felt place by someone who has clearly lived this story. Now it’s possible some of the events described actually happened to others and have been adopted by this author, because it’s hard to accept that this boy, abandoned for years on the grubbiest most dangerous streets imaginable, actually survived. Many of his friends didn’t. We are shamed to realize as humans that we allowed this to go on, that one of the most powerful nations in the world was allowed to let the kind of abuses and conditions here described, persist. The story is a difficult and uncomfortable one to read. I must refer back to my opening paragraph. In the hands of an editor the story line could have been strengthened, the grammar cleaned, the pace emboldened. But it would not be the same book, would not spew out the same raw power. And so I am compelled to give this work a very high rating and hope readers will take “God’s Buried Children” at face value and be moved, to tears, to anger to resolve. As you now must know, I strongly recommend this book.
