    A beautifly written book

    Firstly, the book was well written. Mr. Gettleman's moving portrait of the beauty and sadness of Africa captured the complexity of this continent and his love above all of the people who live there. Even the stresses his profession placed on his family, he could not stop telling the story.

    Brings back memories

    I lived in Africa briefly during Kenya's bucolic period. It was sad to read Mr. Gettleman's account of how things have changed. I couldn't stop reading, as this story is well crafted. I could see and feel the war zones. I watched his growth. I cheered his wife for forgiving him. I felt his anguish and know the tearing the mzungu feels - a life of privilege while knowing that there is a third world out there. I highly recommend this book. He definitely deserved the Pulitzer Prize.
