This is a moving account of the basis of the current conflict in Sudan. Eggers creates an enthralling composite of individual accounts of the countless horrifying stories of the orphaned children of war, told from the point of view of the young refugee, Valentino Acack Deng. While the story tends to drag from time to time, it is wonderfully genuine and moving. I seriously considered reaching out to African refugees here in the states before forgetting about it and going back to playing Wii. Seriously a great novel, my favorite of his above A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius.
This was nothing but a disappointment. I'm a big fan of his show and this was no where near that caliber. It's not clever, just fairly unfunny things said in character. I'm wondering if he saved money by not letting his staff writers help on this.
