This is an eye-opening read even for people who feel up on current events. Valentino's (Achak's) experiences are horrific and his survival and spirit so pure and strong. Even through all the profound misery, Achak displays admirable character. Thank you, Dave Eggers, for writing his story.
Any fan of contemporary fiction and with an interest in world affairs will really love this novel. The story, and the way it is told, is brilliant and really beautiful. The story will break your heart, but it will also fill you with hope. Valentino is an endearing person, and his story comes to life with Eggers' masterful prose. I couldn't put it down!
