↿ The ᠕ A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier  ⇂ Kindle Author Ishmael Beah ∎ ↿ The ᠕ A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier ⇂ Kindle Author Ishmael Beah ∎ Beah s harrowing story of a boy caught up in the civil strife in Sierra Leone is not an audio to curl up with before bedtime Beah s even toned narrative is particularly disturbing because it s almost exactly the same whether he is enjoying the company of a newly found uncle or busy shooting and maiming rebels and even burying them alive His monotone works particularly well when he is recounting his dreams, for he cannot distinguish his nightmares from his waking life Beah speaks with a thick accent that omits th sounds Many words are understandable in their context, but a few are not He also stumbles over some longer and complex words Despite these drawbacks, Beah s tale is a riveting snapshot of childhoods stolen from all too many, not just in Sierra Leone but in Somalia, Iraq, Palestine and other places ravaged by civil wars Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Adult High SchoolThis gripping story by a children s rights advocate recounts his experiences as a boy growing up in Sierra Leone in the 1990s, during one of the most brutal and violent civil wars in recent history Beah, a boy equally thrilled by causing mischief as by memorizing passages from Shakespeare and dance moves from hip hop videos, was a typical precocious 12 year old But rebel forces destroyed his childhood innocence when they hit his village, driving him to leave his home and travel the arid deserts and jungles of Africa After several months of struggle, he was recruited by the national army, made a full soldier and learned to shoot an AK 47, and hated everyone who came up against the rebels The first two thirds of his memoir are frightening how easy it is for a normal boy to transform into someone as addicted to killing as he is to the cocaine that the army makes readily available But an abrupt change occurred a few years later when agents from the United Nations pulled him out of the army and placed him in a rehabilitation center Anger and hate slowly faded away, and readers see the first glimmers of Beah s work as an advocate Told in a conversational, accessible style, this powerful record of war ends as a beacon to all teens experiencing violence around them by showing them that there are other ways to survive than by adding to the chaos.Matthew L Moffett, Pohick Regional Library, Burke, VA Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
