A brilliant read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crazy River: A Plunge into Africa (Paperback)
Throw away all your books on Africa and read Crazy River. It tells the reader the unvarnished truth about Africans, the despair, corruption and brutality of a race that no other book ever has. It is simply brilliant. I've lived in Africa for 15 years and everything I've seen and despaired at is clearly spelt out by the author, Richard Grant. When you finish reading it, start again and after the third reading, you'll know more about Africa than 99% of the western world. It should be compulsary reading for every politicain and civil servant, especially DfID, sitting in their ivory towers showering vaste amounts of our tax payers' money to a bottomless pit of corruption. Well done Richard Grant ... pity about the title and book cover though!
