It had been a little while okay a couple weeks since I d had a page turner and I found it in Andrea Eames book I d first heard about it when I attended a panel she was on at AWP about publishing global fiction I was interested in the things she said and in what I d heard about her book so I bought it online it hasn t been published in the States btw but everything s available on it seemsI knew only a little about Zimbabwe and Mugabe before I read this book but I think this story gave me a human perspective It s one sided of course since it s a white perspective but I found it extremely compelling to hear this story from a teenage girl I think choosing that character as a narrator was a good choice There are occasionally paragraphs that sounds expository like they d come from a social studies or history book but they were short and since I m so ignorant I appreciated a bit of background Some of the metaphors were a little obvious but they also had ominous weight And there were uite a few lines that I highlighted to be honest I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the writing since I ve also read some less than favorable comments about her as a writerAll in all I enjoyed it and would recommend it especially to anyone who s interested in the general subject matter of the book It made me think a lot about blackwhite race relations all over the world while I was reading I kept thinking about Kathryn Stockett s The Help and J M Coetzee s Disgrace Nos trajeron los barcos uite a few lines that I highlighted to be honest I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the writing since I ve also read some less than favorable comments about her as a writerAll in all I enjoyed it and would recommend it especially to anyone who s interested in the general subject matter of the book It made me think a lot about blackwhite race relations all over the world while I was reading I kept thinking about Kathryn Stockett s The Help and J M Coetzee s Disgrace
