This almost feels like two different stories and in a way it is just that The first part features a ten year old boy Gabby his sister And his mother who was from Rwanda and his father who is a French ex pat It is marked by the innocence of youth of being able to live a somewhat privileged life in a safe community His days spent playing with his friends their rivalry with a boy named Frances his only worry the disintegrating relationship of his parents In Burundi the first democratic election is soon to be held and people have high hopes for their countryThe second half shows the gradual loss of his innocence In Rwanda the genocide has begun and his mother travels to Rwanda seeking the family she has there She finds a horror beyond words and on her returns to her family she is much changed barely recognizable Gabby now eleven thinks Genocide is an oil slick those who don't drown in it are polluted for lifeA novel that shows the detriment of war the frutality of trying to stay neutral when it is brought to your door Countries torn apart families torn apart there are no winners I loved the character of Gabby insightful and wise for his age he tries to stay uninvolved burying himself in his books but is soon shocked out of his complacency The innocence and uietness of the first part of this book serves to highlight the changes that war brings the loss of innocence in the second half Jarringly so The author doesn't spare the readers the terror the horror but also how living with these conditions becomes the new normal It is not until it is brought to their door that this changes We are not left hanging about the outcome the last end of the book features some very insightful thoughts in a letter Gabby writes It also catches us up on the near future what happened to some of these characters and the effect in had on their lives The third book about Rwanda that I have read this month all of them both different and the same This is a well done story one definitely worth readingARC from Edelweiss

Bout d'Afriue centrale brutalement malmenée par l'HistoirePlus tard Gabriel fait revivre un monde à jamais perdu Les battements de cœur et les souffles coupés les pensées pro. AbhorrenceIn this emotionally charged book Gaël Faye carefully navigates through a modern time where human depravity descended so deep into the abyss Unfortunately it seems human history is littered with wars and atrocities however we sometimes seem to really outdo the horror especially when the cruelty is incited from a systematic national directive of genocide Can we continue to describe this as human In 1994 the racial tensions between Hutu and Tutsi made global news for the brutal massacre of Tutsis by Hutus in Rwanda and to a lesser extent in Burundi What was it really over and was it worth it The shocking uote below when trying to understand the reasons behind the horror illustrates how futile and tragic the whole conflict was “The war between Tutsis and Hutus is it because they don’t have the same land”“No they have the same country”“So they don’t have the same language”“No they speak the same language”“So they don’t have the same God”“No they have the same God”“So why are they at war”“Because they don’t have the same nose” Ten year old Gaby Gabriel lives with his French father Rwandan mother soon to be separated and sister Ana in Bujumbura in Burundi which borders Rwanda In the 1990s Gaby and his 4 other friends Gino Armand and the twins spend time doing what all friends do they argue they play they pick mangoes not always honestly and sell to make money They use an old VW Combi as their H and play the games all children want to They do however get that uneasy feeling when adults get worried and start speaking in whispers when attitudes change and anxiety creeps into everyday life How long can they be shielded from the fear brutality and atrocities that are escalating in Burundi and neighbouring Rwanda NOT FOREVER – pause silence tears “This poisonous lava the thick flow of blood was ready to rise to the surface once We didn’t know it yet but the hour of the inferno had come and the night was about to unleash its crackle of hyenas and wild dogs” Innocence is lostGaël Faye has written a really heartfelt moving and inspiring book dealing with the loss of innocence and dreams when humanity descends to unimaginable depths of depravity The effects on family especially those that have witnessed or narrowly escaped the killings is compassionately narrated in the story This is an absolutely excellent debut wonderfully well written and deserves to be read lest we forget When asked of Hutu militia why do you kill with machetes when you have guns the answer was bullets cost money and they victims are poorMany thanks to Random House UK Vintage Publishing and NetGalley for an ARC version of the book in return for an honest review

It had moments that were very compelling but the overall story was disjointed and felt incomplete There wasn't anything particularly special about the writing; it was a fine translation I do think it's cool that the author is a musician and I definitely want to check out his work
