The Place at the End of the World
The Place at the End of the World
by JANINE DI GIOVANNI
Edition: Perfect Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but let down in parts, 28 Sep 2007
The Place at the End of the World is a very good piece of work from a clearly passionate and talented writer. di Giovanni excels in providing a voice to the those we do not hear from generally, such as bombed out villagers in Chechnya and child soldiers in West Africa.

The only draw back however is the self serving ending, which focuses upon the author's attempts at having a child. This, along with the chapter devoted to America post September 11th, is misplaced in a book that otherwise focuses so well on the most war ravaged and miserable corners of the world.
