As an English teacher, I look for authors with purpose and who use literary device to achieve that purpose. This book, both for literary reasons, and pure storytelling ability, is a masterpiece. An english student can analyze the text, and be mezermized by the use of sound, parallel construction, and symbol (to name a few!), and all readers can enjoy the quality of character and plot. My ultimate test is a book's ending; this book's ending is tragically appropriate, and yet hopeful as well. Read this book; you will not be disappointed!

This story takes you to the dark edge of humanity. It's rather disturbing & shows SA as barbaric. I'm still pondering if I would recommend this to anyone.

A new and upcoming African writer. DeSoto brought out a lively story about Africa. It portrayed the people through lively characters, and gave a vivid picture of the landscape. His insight into the human relationships that were prevalent in the era was perfect. The tragedies are relayed in a somber but heart strengthening way. DeSoto's picture of South African apartheid portrays the mixed emotions of the characters, of love, hate, sorrows, regrets and sufferings. He made it possible for anyone to relate to the story. I always like books about Africa since I want to get a good account of many of the untold stories about what happened during the last century of the continent's turbulent history. And in DeSoto's descriptions that are so evocative of the bush and the characters, I had a great insight.
