Blog Number Two
So far the reading is going pretty well. The reading didn't take much time so I got it all done within a half hour or so. From what we have read so far the book is very graphic and the author describes everything very well. This book reminds me of a movie called Blood Diamond. Both talked about children fighting in the war. There was a part in the book when people were running away from their old village and it got attacked by rebels. The author described a man that was holding his son in every bit of detail. The man was trying to get his son some help, not knowing his son had already passed away. The book is very sad and powerful. The reason why the rebels are attacking people is because they want to overthrow the government. The rebels want to keep people alive so that they can create a human shield. The only question I have from the reading was that I was wondering what year is the story taking place in?
