This review is from: The Shadow of the Sun: My African Life (Paperback)
I took this book with me on a recent trip to Africa, and it was the perfect companion. He writes with a gentle style that demonstrates both his love for the continent and its people, as well as his astonishment at humans' resilience to the hardships they encounter. As I got towards the end, I read slower and slower, trying to make it last longer. The ultimate compliment was that instead of ditching the book in Africa, I gave up much-needed space and weight in my rucksack to bring it home so I can read it again in the future. Wonderful.
