Bu, 1970'lerin koruyucu bakım sisteminde kaybolan bir çocuğun trajik hikayesi. Bu bir zafer ve cesaret hikayesi ... onun kaba başlangıçlarını gerçekten aştığı ve hayatının harika bir şey yaptığını!
A powerful book. The writing is beautiful; there were moments that I wished I had my computer and/or notepad along (I read it on vacation) so that I could jot down quotes, and when I finished it, I wished I could keep it longer so that I could read it again. But alas, it is from the public library and has too many holds for me to renew it. I will be putting another hold on it though. The alternating voices of Little Bee and Sarah were real to me, and the story unfolded perfectly. Charlie/Batman provided enough humor and sweetness so that I could continue reading this really hard story. Highly recommend!
Everyone knows there are terrible things going in the Sudan. This book gives a face and a name to horrors. If it doesn't inspire you to help out in some way, you might be a robot.
Everybody else read this book in 5th grade. I read it this week. (19th grade) It's written for "young adults" (read: KIDDIES) so I can't really criticize it for being super ham-fisted in terms of beating the whole 'Society of Sameness' setting like a dead horse. Over. And over. I could not roll my eyes hard enough for the first 40-50 pages of this book, but the little golden Newberry Award sticker on the front cover made me SIGH and keep reading. I'm almost embarrassed to say that this book got way better in a pretty short amount of time in the last...oh...1/8th of the book (haha that's like ten pages). I didn't really *buy* the whole character transformation, but these characters weren't exactly three dimensional to begin with anyway. #^@*(@[email protected]*()[email protected] LOL-tacular interpretation of the ending: What if Jonah and his little bro ran off to create an only-blue-eyed society together? Jonah single-handedly becomes the world's first RACIST.
