Daoud Hari's memoir of his experiences as a native of and translator in Darfur help to put a name, a face, and a personal history onto a story that lingers on the back pages of American newspapers. I really don't understand why the US and the rest of the world hasn't taken stronger measures to put a stop to the horrific genocide taking place. Hari does not try to explain, at least not to any extent, but relies on his simple but moving story to move his readers to action. He speaks lovingly of a gentle people trying to eke out a living in their harsh but beloved homeland--a description that makes the horrible events that have taken place in Darfur all the more devastating.
My only criticisms of the book are:
1) I would have appreciated the inclusion of a map. It would have helped me to visualize where Daoud moved and the geographic relationships among the various groups mentioned in the book.
2) The writing might have been tighter--but this may be a problem of translation or of editing. There was quite a bit of circling back to the same moments, and I don't think that was done intentionally for impact.
But overall, a moving and significant book that I hope more people will read.
