While this book is a fascinating read, is it FULL of minor historical and factual inaccuracies. She either glosses or simply mis-reports a myriad of details about DRCongo's culture, geography, economy, and history. Those consistent mistakes make it hard to feel confident about ANY of the facts reported in the book, except for her bizarrely immature love story with her now-husband. Were it fiction, I'd recommend the compelling storytelling.
