I just finished this book and enjoyed it but felt extremely confused by the time I reached the end. My book club is reading it and I think it will garner a lot of really great discussion. This is a book about a street thug, named Tsotsi (which means thug) who is given a baby and his life begins to change. He begins to rethink the path his life is on and begins to remember things from his past that were long forgotten. I really liked Tsotsi and the transformation he goes through because of this baby. I didn't like the way it ended, but I knew it had to end that way so I wasn't surprised. I was just saddened, that's all.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone though. It was a very quick read. I think it took me about two weeks to get through it; I mainly read it during my morning and evening commute.
