What happened after was a nightmare. As she explained in the interview that led me to read this book, the author made at effort in being authentic in her writing of this story. According to the author she tried to emulate how people spoke and interacted. This would explain why it was the winner of Editor's Choice Award.

It reminds me of 'Beasts of No Nation' where the author also uses authentic language. Everyone who wants to learn about the effect that war has on children and their resilience should read this book. It is a tale of not only inhumane suffering but also of unwavering faith and hope.

Above all it a tale of true friendship. The author manages to expertly alternate between scenes about Edgar's ordeal and those of his friends as they embark on the search of their friend. A very good read, very simple English but very engaging. Modern slavery is something I never thought of before. Since then, the reality and destiny of people who are forced into slavery has deeply touched me.

His fear, his dismay and horror are described in a way that the reader gets annoyed, excited and Modern slavery is something I never thought of before. His fear, his dismay and horror are described in a way that the reader gets annoyed, excited and horrified about Edgar's destiny.

Suzanna's knowledge of human rights, her investigative work on the LRA and human trafficking led to the writing of one of the most remarkable and inspiring stories ever written on the subject of modern day slavery and human rights. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about the subject of modern day slavery, and to those who seek to understand one of the most wanted war criminals Joseph Kony and the Lord's Resistance Army LRA "Nightmare Along The River Nile" is a powerful educational tool against modern day slavery.

What is Kobo Super Points?

Thank you Suzanna for using your skills, talents and passion to shine a light on the LRA's crimes and inspiring readers, young and old to take action to abolish modern day slavery. Nelson is a book that appears to have been written for one fundamental purpose. It aims to highlight and expose the rather harsh fact that modern day slavery does exist. For me, personally this book has succeeded in fulfilling that purpose as prior to reading it had no idea that slavery still went on in the modern age.

Whilst travelling home to his mother, the bus Edgar is travelling on gets ambushed by an insurgency group known as the LRA. Alongside the majority of the passengers Edgar is abducted and so begins an ordeal of suffering and misery as he ends up being sold into slavery in the Sudan. This book is quite simply heart-wrenching at times as the reader is subjected to following the unbearable circumstances that Edgar must endure. The cruelty and hate shown by his captors really does highlight the simple fact that evil is still alive and well in the world.

I think it highlights well that good and evil are there no matter colour, race and religion of the people involved. I basically found that the novel came across in a very direct and factual style, with that characters telling the reader how they felt instead of having their feelings expressed through actions and descriptions.

Overall, this novel does vividly highlight the suffering and horror that people can still face due to slavery. I think the overall tension and emotional impact do suffer a little bit due to the style of the story telling but I still found the entire novel entertaining enough to ensure I followed it through to completion. On a personal note, I really appreciated reading a story that explored parts of Africa I knew nothing about and it created enough interest that I have read more about the countries and people introduced to me in this story.

I usually just read thrillers. I was surprised by the way this story captured my interest. Although the subject matter is negative this story focuses mostly on the positive. I knew that Kony and his LRA rebel bandits had been causing havoc in Central Africa for a long time, but this book clarified all the stories i have heard through the eyes of it's characters.

Although the book is not biographical, I was able to understand what the people went through and how strong they had to be. I empathize I usually just read thrillers. I empathized with the protagonist's plight but was also uplifted by his faith and the strong friendships he created. Overall a very good read on a subject matter that should be publicized for all to know.

If you want to improve your knowledge on the culture, the LRA, human trafficking and still be engrossed in the story, this is a good book to read. As an African I was excited to find a book with authentic dialogue, one that was able to adequately capture African mannerisms, dialect and nuances.

I was instantly reminded of how my friends and i relate to each other. I was touched by the friendship between the four boys, but most importantly, i was saddened by what happened to Edgar. A few years ago I visited a place in Western Sahara where slaves used to be sold, so this book brought back those memories. In addition, having grown up in a war As an African I was excited to find a book with authentic dialogue, one that was able to adequately capture African mannerisms, dialect and nuances.

In addition, having grown up in a war-zone in Rwanda, i found this book to be realistic. I was able to relate to the feelings and situations of the principle as well as the ancillary characters which is a rare connection to find in a book. This is a book to read. With this book based on hard reality, I am finding the journey of discovery amazing Not everyone in this world is blessed by virtual of where they are born. Free delivery worldwide.
