Call Me American characters À PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Read Ê PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ì Abdi Nor Iftin Abdi Nor Iftin Ì 4 Read Dishu to take on the warlords Abdi cheered the arrival of these real Americans who seemed as heroic as those of the movies. This memoir tells the story of Abdi Iftin affectionately known as Abdi American who survives several civil wars in Somalia and comes to emigrate to America through grit perseverance and a little bit of luck This book was extremely graphic in the way it described the horrors Abdi and his family faced in addition to being subject to extreme poverty and abuse at the hand of his schoolteacher It also contained some interesting tidbits such as how one little boy from his neighborhood ended up fleeing Somalia to become a breakout star in the Tom Hanks film Captain PhillipsOne of my gripes with this book is it tended to drag on during certain parts of his story I found myself uickly skimming through certain paragraphs that I felt didn t add anything new or relevant to his life story Also I was left feeling unsatisfied with the last chapter in the book There were some unanswered uestions that would have wrapped up the story nicely For example what happened with Abdi and Fatuma Overall I would recommend this book to read if you re interested in learning about the conditions people in Somalia faced during their civil wars from a firsthand perspective I received this ARC from Random House Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review
