Book Review: A Long Way Gone

Title: A Long Way Gone
Author: Ishmael Beah

This is probably one of the most violent non-fiction books I've read. It's a horrifying look into what war does to children in Sierra Leone and many other places around the world. This is a recommended read for anyone. It's short and the reading is quick, but it is very powerful in its brevity. I would say that this book produced similar emotions in me as did Night, by Elie Wiesel. Both short, but both unforgettable.
