a story that is definitely worth telling, but i'm not convinced eggers was the person to tell it. for at least the first half i found his achak deng 'voice' patronising and irritating, overly mannered in a way that interfered with the believability of the character. fortunately, eggers managed to put the voice in the background later in the book, and the story that comes through is inspiring and horrifying.
