Book Review of What Is the What

What Is the What
reviewed on


This unabridged audio recording is outstanding.

The novel begins with a bit of a disclaimer from someone who says it is mostly his story, with a mix of the stories of others from his cohort in Sudan, explaining that the result is a novel.

I can only respond as a listener to the story (having gotten the book on CD), and I recommend it to anyone who can put up with some of the descriptions of atrocities during war.

The larger part of the story is of optimism and perseverance in during part of a lifetime.
