What a book to struggle through. This book was a required read for a college level class and was interesting in that it began my search into Sudan, but the way the book is written is bouncy and hard to follow. The book bounces from past to present in the most terrible ways. It also bounces from different pasts and different futures. It is hard to follow and the book contains passages from Dave Eggers that detracts from the true story of Valentino. Terrible read if you were to read it for fun, a useful book if you were needing to do some research on Sudan and the causes of multiple civil wars in such a nation.
