Confused morality, July 8 2010
It is historical fact that the Communist Dictatorship of Ethiopia was a disaster for that country leaving it devastated. The author sounds like she didn't understand that socialism is the evil here and the novel, which is well written and sustains your interest fails as it, like the family at the centre of the story doesn't have a coherent philosophy of life that they believe in enough to defend, perhaps it is a brilliant description of why the educated people of Ethiopia just meekly gave themselves over to the communist Derg. Sadly self-immolation isn't pretty. In the end one is left with a very disappointing ending.
