The Last King of Scotland by Giles Foden

This book sat in my 'to read' pile for ages, and then once i'd opened it i couldn't put it down. By page 17 I had decided it would be my book of the year!

What I loved about it was how well the author knows Uganda. It is absolutely spot on, the dialogue, the description, everything. I was completely transported and transfixed.

I had seen the film already - and do really like the film - but the book was a whole other level. For anyone who has ever been to Uganda, a must read.
