I hadn’t watched any YouTube interviews between the author and the subject matters before diving straight into the book. As a not-so-flexible nonfiction reader, I tend to take two steps back on books written under the cover of “based on a true story” or real events that are, unfortunately, published under the big N word, “novel” – Although, both of them deserve separate credits for what they intend to deliver, influence.
But I made an exception for this read because it’s Sudan, and that the author pulled me in right from the beginning. I have read a few accounts on Sudan, so I was somewhat familiar with certain events and could thus relate to this read better.
A Long Walk To Water – All one needs is pure determination to change lives. But it won’t be possible without help, assistance and support from others. These people are all larger than life. Thank you to the author for making this story a living legacy.
