    This is how wars are fought now by children, hopped up on drugs, and wielding AK-47s. In the more than fifty violent conflicts going on worldwide, it is estimated that there are some 300,000 child soldiers. Ishmael Beah used to be one of them. How does one become a killer? How does one stop? Child soldiers have been profiled by journalists, and novelists have struggled to imagine their lives. But it is rare to find a first-person account from someone who endured this hell and survived. In" A Long Way Gone Beah," now ... Show more

Unforgettable

This truly unforgettable autobiography relates a lifestyle that only a few Americans could ever be familiar with. The courage and honesty of the author takes my breath away. An important story that everyone should read

10 out of 10 child in a warzone

by nordicleather on Sep 20, 2007

This is one of the very best autobiographies I have every read. He was a child soldier in Sierra Leonne which was a warzone. How he got through it with the traits common to all survivors. This book is a profile in courage, bravery and mental strength and what it takes to endure. A must read for anyone who thinks they had it tough. There is always someone who had it tougher.

Children at War

by sd6161 on Sep 12, 2007

In a long way gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier, Ishmael Beah brings forth an account of the violent and savage assult a war can shed, not only on a country, but on it's people and their children. His testimony as a child witness and participant to such an unspeakable tragedy is chilling and heart rendering; akin to those of Anne Frank and Elie Wiesel, both childhood lives greatly disturbed by war and greatly celebrated for the courageous ways inwhich they shared their experiences. This is a must read for all teens and adults.

Story of survival and humanity

by GIRLCHRIS on Jun 20, 2007

I would recommend this book to teenagers and adults. It is a moving story of the author's boyhood. It shows what any of us are capable of doing in order to survive. Also, it helps us to understand that redemption is possible. We are not always what we do or, in the author's case, are forced to do. The author's basic human nature was able to rebound from his horrible experiences.
