it was amazing

I have step-family members who know Paul Rusesabagina and they recommended the book to my mom, who recommended it to me. I read and was sickened by the inhumanity shown by human beings. But out of the horrors of murder and mutilation, hatred and stupidity, came powerful love and amazing strength. If you've seen the movie "Hotel Rwanda", which is based on this book, you've only seen a tiny portion of what Paul did to save the people who were lucky enough to be in his care. The politics of a country gone insane are frightening. The bravery of this man are miraculous and there is no doubt he was put in the right place at the right time. Update (years after the book was finished): Paul has now reconciled with God and he realizes he was placed right where he was needed, at the time God needed for him to be there.
