The book An Ordinary Man is an incredible, inspiring true story that is a MUST READ for everyone. This book is a “must read” because Paul Rusesabagina, the protagonist, is an amazing real-life hero. He saves 2000 people at the hotel Mille Collines just by maintaining and protecting the hotel where he works. It is so inspiring to read about such a humble hero. Furthermore, The book uses Paul’s life as a parallel for Rwandan history. It was a really effective technique that drove the plot forward while also telling the background for the genocide that took place in 1994. Most importantly, this genocide isn’t often studied or covered in most history classes. Paul’s story made me feel passionately that everyone should know about this important event. In summary, this is a book that all teachers should consider including in their curriculum!An Ordinary Man: An Autobiography
