Draws a vivid color of what the few months before and after the 1973 revolution was like. Maaza's decriptions are stunning. The way she captures feelings is from the beyond and I am still haunted by one particular death and what it triggered. Whatever is missing here, and there is a lot to one born and raised in Addis, there is a lot more to be founs. I love Dr. Hailu because I recognize my own father in him, whom I never really loved. I like Dawit because I grew up with a lot of Dawits. But Yonas, minus his prayers, is where the real humanity is. The fear, the doubt, the self-blame of a survivor. The burden of being a man, a husband, a son.
For those who haven't read the book, the first 100 or so pagea are not an easy read. Going through took a lot of will. However, this is a good read. You won't regret it.
Most boring book ever, had to read it for school, couldn't have gotten through this book with the audio.
