A Long Way Gone (3 Chapters In)
A Long Way gone is extremely engaging and keeps my eyes in the pages once i start reading. I enjoy books that give us views and perspectives from settings on the other side of the globe. So far, this novel reminds me of one of my favorite movies of all time, Blood Diamond with Leonardo Dicaprio; however, in the novel, the story is depicted through a child looking death straight in the face while in the movie, scenes are channeled through a father's eyes that lost his son during excruciating times. The film was purely amazing; I hope A Long Way Gone coincides.
