A gripping, personal account of growing up in Rwanda and the Rwandan genocide. Ms. Mushikiwabo's memories are at turns heartbreaking and charming, her country's history intriguing, and the statistics unfathomable ("State executioners and local volunteers...catching and dispatching more than three times as many people as al Qaeda did when it dropped the World Trade Center. That's not how many they killed altogether. That's how many they killed every day - ten thousand a day...for one hundred days."). Childhood stories bring Ms. Mushikiwabo and her family to life, making them your family, your friends. This is an engrossing read that starkly reminds us simultaneously of the cruelty of human nature and the spirit to survive unimaginable sorrow.
A really great book. Really great writing. Illustrious and Illuminating!
The book is great - well written, good plot, the subject matter is just intense. Not for young readers
