One Thousand Hills by James Roy and Noel Zihabamwe. Was it any good? Worth a read? Well, let’s talk about it. I have a lot to talk about when it comes to this book. First, let's start with is it interesting and fun to read. I think overall this was actually a very interesting read and an exciting book too. To be honest I did not think they would be able to a book with a subject as sensitive as this entertaining but they did achieve that well. There was only one problem I had regarding this issue and that is how long it took to get to this point in the book. If you are reading this book there is a high chance you know that it's about a genocide so for the first 70% you are just wondering when will it happen. This book was actually more about how it began and what the life a Tutsi person was leading up to this event. They could have just made it more 50/50 because I think there is a lot more to talk about how it really ended and how he survived.
Now, of course, I was reading this book for my GINS novel study not just for fun. So was this book fitting for the project. Yes. This book is great because it has many different issues and global issues to talk about. When writing my blog posts I usually I had to try to limit myself to how much I write because I had a lot to say and it just really fits this project nicely. I think this book is actually a good book to read whether you are doing this project or not. I think something that I noticed about this book is that of course, this is a sensitive issue so some things may be hard to talk about. They use the context to make it realistic but not offensive or disturbing and that is really cool and special. I would say this is a good book to read for people who do not get bored fast and have some free time.
