it was ok
bookshelves: africa, around-the-world, fiction

This book was really just OK. There were so many characters, none of whom were really fully developed - so when they either turned into terrorists or got killed, I really didn't care. Also, I still have no idea why the problems started, and what they were trying to accomplish. I realize that it's based on the reality of the country - but fiction about these types of events really should help the reader understand what motivates the characters, and I never got that from this book.
