A Long Way Gone
So far I have found A Long Way Gone to be interesting. It reminds me of a book I had to read in high school called Left to Tell. Left to Tell was about the genocide that happened in Rwanda. The scene I most remember was the family in the car. They had all been shot at just because they were fleeing. The other scene was the man carrying his dead son to the hospital believing/ hoping his son was still alive. The important relationship so far is between Ishmael and his brother. I am sure this will change because families in these situations always get split up. I am kind of apprehensive to keep reading. I am not a big fan of books like this. I don't have any questions yet but, I am sure I will as we get further in.
