Susan Shaw mastered the art of characterization by adding new characters to the book. Charlie is 12 and he cannot read The Boy From the Basement tells the story of a boy named Charlie who is horrendously abused by his father. Unlike other books, every few pages a new character is introduced, although these characters may not become main, I do like the style. She is also very creative. He is kept so isolated from the world around him that when he finally has a taste of freedom he is TERRIFIED of it due to the lies he was told about how unsafe it is beyond the confines of the concrete basement he has been locked in for years.

I love this story, I wish it was a memoir, but that would mean it would have to be true. and there is enough going on in the world today , we don't need this story to be one that is seenon the news. However, it IS a very good read. I suggest that organizations that deal with children who were abused and neglected need to read this book, it relates to the childrne. It makes the reader keep reading to find out what happens to the little boy. I am older than a teen, but study things for children. I think this is a good teen or adolescent read for children who have been through this situation.

Has a great ending, you will love it

This was truly one of the best books that I have read. I find it very compelling and the smilies that the writer used to explain the spider that he kept seeing and fearing was unbelievable. It just seemed so surreal to me, and I'm not so sure why.

I read this book in grade six and it showed me that the world wasn't really a perfect and wonderfully great all the time. I owe a lot to this novel.

I enjoyed the concept that was displayed in this story, and I swear every second a emotion streamed down Charlie's back I felt it too. The scene that I enjoyed the most was when the two boys went outside and Charlie's dad showed up. I didn't know what was going to happen at that point to be honest, I thought that it was going to be very climaxic, by his father dragging him away, but than the foster family to take him out of his hands.

This book will make you think about all the things that you have, have had, are going to have, and all the things that you will leave behind when you die. Charlie didn't have that in the begining of the story, but as time progressed he was given more and was earning more and most importantly he had a family, foster one maybe, but at least they cared about him and wanted to help him out.

I would recommend to anybody, to READ THIS BOOK.

The Boy from the Basement is an emotional journey packed into 200 pages. This story will put at the readers’ heartstrings, as they travel with Charlie, as he begins a new life. Told from Charlie’s perspective, the reader delves into the mind of a twelve year old, who seems much younger due to the unfortunate circumstances of his childhood. He has no social skills or knowledge of the outside world, yet the other children he encounters don’t seem to mind. They show Charlie how kind the world can be, and accept him for who he is, despite his frantic outbursts and claims of a large red spider that is going to attack. This book concentrates more on the aftermath of an abusive situation, versus the actual abusive behavior itself. This allows the audience to be expanded to a middle school level.

The Boy from the Basement is a powerful story that can be finished in one setting. However, its impact will remain much longer. I would have loved a longer novel, one that explores the full recovery of Charlie and how he adapts to the outside world. However, for the intended audience, the length is perfect. It captures their attention and gives just enough of a story to prompt questions and discussions. Susan Shaw does a fantastic job of creating a loveable character, one audiences won’t forget.

Ever wonder how a young child could escape out of child abuse? Charlie (main character) knows exactly what it takes. His story takes you through the brutality, hard-ship, and recovery of child abuse. Recently I read The Boy from the Basement, by Susan Shaw for my freshman English class.

The main character in the book is a young boy named Charlie, who has been locked away and kept prisoner in the basement, by his easily angered father, as a "punishment". He has never been to school, heard of holidays or even used a phone. He believes he deserves this because he has been bad. Sadly, this is all Charlie has ever known. But when Charlie gets accidentally locked outside one night, he sees a world he had never seen before. When he gets picked up by police officers he is sent away to a foster family, where he is haunted by hallucinations and his father's anger.

I think that there were some very good parts in this book. One being was when Charlie was playing outside at his foster home and his father shows up. This was a big deal because his father was not supposed to even see Charlie because he had abused him. He also never let him outside before or he would make Charlie stay in the basement for even longer.

The reason why I'm recommending this book to you is that I think that it had a message I think that people should understand. The main idea was about a boy's escape and recovery from extreme child abuse and finding a new home. In my opinion this is a big problem still today. I also think that the author did a good job explaining the journey and how the main character got through it. On the other hand one thing I probably would have changed was about the mother in the story and that she really didn't have anything to do with the story line. I think it would have been better if they would have included her in it.
