    1. Alfred J. Kwak

      Occasionally shocking, but riveting and highly readable personal account of the scandal called Darfur by Daoud, member of the Zaghawa, an ethnic group straddling the border between Sudan and Chad. It is (mostly) a chronological account of what happened to them and himself between 2003 and late 2005. Daoud, working from Chad, quickly establishes himself as a resourceful and reliable translator for newsmen and human rights researchers in Chad’s refugee camps or for forays into Darfur. His sixth [...]

      A wrenching read that delivers a rare and vivid glimpse into genocidal horrors that are difficult to imagine. Ultimately it’s instructive on human nature and its capacity for both saintly good and despicable evil. Dramas in the final one-third of the book are truly riveting.I enjoyed the simple writing style, flavored with diction and phraseology that betrays authorship by a non-native English speaker. The editors preserved that style very nicely. It adds some additional distinction and authen [...]

      This book of murders begins with: "I know most people want others to have good lives and will do what they can to steer the world back toward kindness."Daoud Hari writes of small birds falling dead from his robes, "their hearts broken by this noise" of gunfire. He describes a woman newly hanging in a tree and a child alone waving at him from a killing field. He writes of Sudan atrocities, of cascading death in Darfur and of small blooms of life surviving. To have survived at all is a surpris [...]

      This was well a written and vivid description of the horrors of the genocide in Darfur. Thoughtful and intense with emotion. I finished it several days ago and still think of some of the horrors he described. There is one intensely gripping scene of a father and his little girl who runs to him only to be stabbed. She continues to cry out to him as she is dying. There is another touching scene where he talks to some of the boys holding him captive. It is good to think about their lack of ch [...]

      A beautiful, clearly-written book by a man whose dedication to helping journalists makes my mind reel. Truly amazing. I read recently the author is driving a cab in the US. That is a crime, because clearly he has incredible talent and more stories to tell.

      Daoud Hari is indeed a blessed man to have survived capture and imprisonment- risking his life to tell the world of the human tragedy called Darfur. This book speaks volumes of his profound courage and of the brave reporters and others who ventured right into the line of fire so that the world will know. The heartbreaking descriptions of the carnage is hard to read at times, but I am most haunted by the child sitting in the grass who stopped crying and waved goodbye as Daoud and the news crew h [...]
