Format: Paperback
In his early twenties, Conor Grennan thought he'd take a year off work and travel around the world. However, he originally wanted to brag to young women that he was going to do something special during his year away like saving children and that's exactly what he ended up doing. Little did he know at the time that his 2-week volunteer stint in Nepal would turn into two years!

These children were orphaned and Conor wasn't exactly sure if he wanted to get involved with a developing country in the middle of a civil war. But he soon came to learn that he felt more for these children than he thought he ever would. How could he walk away from these smiling children who were totally alone in the world and had come to love him so much.

The children weren't really orphans but servants for families who child traffickers were promising families in remote villages to protect their children from the civil war for huge sums of money and then lying and saying they would take their child(ren) to safety. The children would then be abandoned far, far from their original homes in the civil uprising of Nepal's capital, Kathmandu.

Conor soon found this bragging idea of his to be the adventure of his life when he becomes totally commited to reunite the children he had grown to love with their families, but it would be a very difficult job indeed. Conor would end up risking his own life on a journey through the legendary mountains of Nepal, facing the dangers of a bloody civil war and a debilitating injury to his knee and the threat of being snowed in, in the cold. Waiting back in Kathmandu was Liz, the woman who would eventually become his wife and share in his life's work.

26 of 28 people found the following review helpful By anne m. on Jan. 12 2011
Format: Paperback
this is my 1st review i have ever written about one of the many books i have ordered from amazon. but , i had to write a review of this book because I LOVED IT !!

the author , conor , has you hooked by page 2 as he tells in complete honesty of his " motivation " to go to nepal and help " helpless " orphans. he shares his plans loudly to the girls he wished to impress.
he is also honest about his complete lack of any CHILD CARE EXPERIENCE and he shares his only skill he had was the ability to "bend over and pick up things" !!

well , all this soon changes as he arrives in nepal. you fall in love with the kids he meets , just he does.

the story is well written as the author describes the entire political situation in nepal .. he also gives vivid descriptions of life in nepal for the citizens of that country.

i had to go to work the night i started the book. it went with me and every break i had i continued to read. i had to stay awake to finish the book as once i started i had to know what was going to happen to the kids and to the people who also worked with him. an excellent story of the difference a few people can make to the lives of others !!!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK !!! I DIDN'T WANT THE STORY TO END !!

Format: Paperback
Title: Little Princes
Author: Conor Grennan
Publisher: William Morrow
Pages: 304
Source: ARC from Publisher
Category: Memoir
Rating: 5/5

Synopsis:

29-year-old Conor wanted to take a year long trip around the world, after receiving some criticism from his peers about this foolish trip, he decided to volunteer at a little orphanage in war-torn Nepal. Who could criticize a man who was taking a trip to volunteer to help little children? Conor thought is sounded pretty impressive, and after his 3 months, he could walk away and he would be free to do as he pleases. However, those 3 months changed his life forever, and when he tried to leave he realized a large part of him remained with those children.He had to go back. Conor was astonished when he learned that these children were not in-fact orphans, they were children subjected to child traffickers. In war-tore Nepal parents were desperate to keep their children safe, parents were willing to sell all their possessions to pay to keep their children from being conscripted into a rebel army that had formed in opposition to the government. Child traffickers were promising families in remote villages that they could protect the children -for a large fee- they could bring them to safety. Desperate parents would sell everything, and trust these strangers to take care of their children. The children would be led far away from home, and abandoned in the capital of Nepal, many of them landing in orphanages. Their parents far away, and unaware. After his 3 months, Conor continues on his trip but realizes he must do more. Conor gained the trust and love of the children and vowed to help them be reunited with their families.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Danielle on April 19 2011
Format: Paperback
This is hands down the best book I've ever read. I finished it last week and, after deciding it was in my top 3 best books, I'm ready to declare it number one because I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since I put it down. Tears still come to my eyes from just the thought of this amazing story.

It's an incredible true story, but it's written in such a way that it reads like a novel, grabbing and keeping your attention throughout. I felt such a connection with all of the characters that I actually miss reading about them now that I've finished.

Conor Grennan's words made me laugh, cry, and smile. His story reminds me that there are kind hearted people left in the world.
