The 2015 reading challenge #6 – A book written by an African author

To choose this book for my reading challenge I did what anyone of my generation would do, I googled! Google brought me to a long list of books written by African authors that was worth reading and I pretty much closed my eyes and picked one. And what a book!!!!

Sitting in Sweden, it’s easy to loose track of what a good life and bad life is all about, opening a book written by someone that’s pretty much my own age that once was a child soldier in Sierra Leone, gives you a healthy dosage of reality and gratitude.

Not only is the book very well written, it also show a great deal of courage as it can’t be easy to write about the horrible things that he once did as a young boy. I recommend you all to read it, and have a think about what really goes on in our world. Not being able to afford the last version of the Iphone, a new sweater or going out to a restaurant for food is not that bad really if you look at the big scheme of things.

I should probably mention the book as well, it’s called A long way gone by Ishmael Beah.
