Them by the nd of the bookWell worth a read for those who like me who tend not to stray beyond Europe in their reading I was utterly taken by this book Eames story telling pulled me in and I just kept turning the pages It s gritty in places very sad throughout and yet includes a compellingly strong spirit The tale is set during Zimbabwe s Second Chimurenga also known as the Rhodesian Bush War or the Zimbabwe Liberation War 1966 1979 and weaves together the veryday and xtraordinary of civil war The tensions between urban and rural wealthy and poor male and female and traditional versus contemporary appear through superb characterization and story telling It is not an asy tale to digest but then why should it be when set against such internal strife and brutalracist colonialism "WHEN I WAN AN UNDERGRADUATE ONE OF MY FAVORITE "I wan an undergraduate one of my favorite was Literature and Revolution which combined revolutionary settings with some of the greats in literature from Russia Spain Cuba Mexico Chile and Argentina If I m honest this is one of my favorite genres when done well and Eames does xtra ordinarily well with this rendition Do not read it with the xpectation of innocence fairness or redemption you will extra ordinarily well with this rendition Do not read it with the xpectation of innocence fairness or redemption you will disappointed But if you read it to sense the raw reality pain and struggle during such fraught violent times then this is a book for you I highly recommend it I njoyed the contrast between the village and the large town and the village ideas that spilled over into the town This was a sad novel and I was a bit disappointed with the nding as it left you to form your own future for the main character.
