5.0 out of 5 stars True to life, 19 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Soldiers of Light (Paperback)
Having travelled to Sierra Leone for work I have seen many places which are mentioned in the book like Koidu, and the cotton tree in Freetown, and even had drinks in the bars mentioned!

I find it great how Daniel Bergner manages to capture certain things I see when I travel to Africa and put them down on paper. In this I mean the good and the bad, from the heights of happiness to the horrible things which occur.

The book can be slightly graphic in certain sections but with reason, and it tries to give the reader the truth of the situation.

I found it quite emotional reading this book and thing he has done a great way to describe events in a very balanced way, giving the reader a background of a variety of people who are/were involved in Sierra Leone's living history.
