A book full of hope, perseverance and determination,
This review is from: The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind (Paperback)
An excellent recommendation to anyone who has a dream but loses hope that they will ever achieve it. This not only tells the story of William Kamkwamba who builds several windmills from scrap and junk to give his family light and a water pump, but also tells of the background of his everyday life in Malawi, with a backdrop of governmental corruption, famine and hardship. This is an inspiration to anyone who endeavours to succeed and a timely reminder to those of us who have never had to suffer these hardships just how lucky and fortunate we are. In a time when libraries are also under valued and under threat it also reminds us how useful they can be!!!!
