I just finished reading this book, and I am still speechless from it. It is an amazing story of his life as a soldier in the army during the war in Sierra Leone. The descriptions he gave of the death of people, the killings, his escape play at all of your heart strings.

It may not be written with a certain "sophistication"...but it is definitely on my list now of one of the most memorable books.
