I was amazed to find out that my old illiterate friend had taken up the mighty pen. It's a story of love, endearing misfortune, and the innocence of childhood that still leaves many children today accepting poverty, starvation and deprivation as the norm. This is a true and wonderful tale, with it's share of heartbreak, heroics and minimal goat abuse. I absolutely loved this book, and can say two honest things about it;
1. I read it in one sitting, and my legs were that numb, I couldn't walk properly for two days.
2. I've bought a second copy, as I can't facing giving this one away to OXFAM.

Excellent book. Read it from start to finish today on the train to and from work, and in my lunch break (about 3 hours all in all). Great little book that I didn't want to put down. Very funny and heart breaking in parts.
