Summary How Fast Can You Run

You MOBI #245 not without trauma culminating when a fellow student betrays him This is the story of a survivor who summons the courageous spirit of millions of refugees throughout history and it lives on today.. Several books have been written about the Lost Boys who escaped from Sudan under horrific conditions during brutal wars I haven t read them all but I m sure this is one of the best It s based on the true story of a boy Majok now Michael who raced to safety with a host of other boys during the 1990s I m not sure why it was written as a novel perhaps so the author could alter time seuences and protect the privacy of some characters Majok s trek across East Africa through jungles and swamps rivers and refugee camps and hiding from soldiers lasted some ten years The privations and difficulties were ghastly and the kids were always hungry yet they managed to find fun along the way dunking each other in a river playing soccer with a ball made from a blown up rubber glove They got some schooling in the camps Majok clearly an exceptionally intelligent person eventually got to America but what he wanted most was to find his mother again The book s writing style is somewhat jerky like the journey itself jumping from one harrowing experience to the next constant action and reaction Only near the end in dramatic court scenes does the reader see the full depth of MajokMichael s character when people who know him stand up to speak about him It s powerful stuff I recommend it for several reasons it describes a situation of concern to the world it reminds us of the plight of refugees who need our help it s a testimony to the incredible resilience of the human spirit and it s a darn good story told well
