First fifty pages went by very fast. It's hard to believe any person could suffer as much as Valentino Deng. His entire life has been an amalgam of violence, persecution, death and plain bad luck. But through it all, he chooses to see the good in everyone and everything, hoping to one day find his place in this large and often terrible world. Dave Eggers, having read this and Zeitoun, is an important author.
