A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soilder Blog 1

Ishmael Beah definitely had a tortured childhood. I can't imagine anything worse than being taken away from your family and being forced to fight a war and kill children just like yourself. Villages in Africa fear him because of all the other boy soldiers that invade and destroy their homes. I can't imagine a worse or more alienated situation than what he went through. I like the book so far because of its intriguing story line and masterful story telling style. It is easy to follow along with what the author is sharing and the conflict throughout the book makes you want to read more. I think Ishmeal gets rescued from his circustances after some long episodes of suffering but is able to recover from what happened to him
