The sad true story of John Merrick, the movie was really good, but the book gives you a little more in depth into his sad life. Makes you appreciate life and what GOD has given you.

Written and published in 1980, based on the well-received movie of the same name and year. Both the book and the movie were very effective, at least for me: I saw the movie in one sitting (of course!), and just today read the book in one sitting.
