DOWNLOAD What Is the What The Autobiography of Valentino Achak Deng 107 From the bestselling author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius What Is the What is the epic novel based on the life of Valentino Achak Deng who along with thousands of other children the so called Lost Boys was forced to leave. If you know me at all you know I read a lot So I don t take these reviews lightly Here goes What is the What is without a doubt one of the best books I have ever readThe story of Valentino Achak Deng a so called Lost Boy of the Sudan is so moving that after reading the book I went to his web site and signed up for information on how I can help the cause Dave Eggers who is easily one of my favorite fiction writers has donated the proceeds of the book to a foundation co founded by he and Valentino wwwvalentinoachackdengorgThe writing is brilliant and the story is compellingbut I think what makes the book so great for me is the sheer tragedy of this boy s life and the unbelieveable sense of courage and optimism he showed throughout a life that would have caused most people to simply give up Valentino s courage is beyond belief As his story unfolds it s unimaginable that he could have survived and it s heartbreaking how at each turn things continued to get worse His survival is a mystery that will never be solvedyet here he is as a young adult doing everything he can to help the world learn from his experienceThe book was also a great history lesson about Sudan and Africa in general and gives the reader great insight into the troubles in Darfur today If the world does not learn from this story then perhaps we are doomed as a speciesFinally though the story is Valentino s the writing is all Eggers He could have easily played the story as a straight biography but instead Eggers weaves Valentino s life together in a beautiful way going back and forth between his time in Africa and his new life in Atlanta And while his life in Africa was indeed a horror his life in the US is not much better and perhaps the biggest lesson of the book we have tried to help these Lost Boys but we are far from perfect and have made many mistakes as a societyIt s ironic that this morning I awoke to a front page story in the Arizona Republic about a birthday celebration for Arizona s Lost Boys there are about 500 Sudanese boys living in the Valley They all celebrate their birthday on Jan 1 because they have no idea when they were really bornIt s also ironic that I finished this book around the same time as I saw The Kite Runner When I read The Kite Runner and even Hosseini s second novel A thousand Splendid Suns I thought life was terrible for the Afghans but Valentino s real story makes the fictional story of the boys in The Kite Runner seem tame by comparison But together these stories make me feel both lucky to live in America and at the same time ashamed that the world can let things like this happenAs I sat reading Valentino s story on my sofa I thought here is a boy who has experienced things I couldn t even imagine while I sit in my 2100 suare foot home with a fridge full of food two cars a happy and relatively healthy family casually spending 4 for a cup of coffee and throwing out food each day than Valentino ate in a month It reaffirms my political views and teaches me to be thankful for what I have and importantly that I have a profound responsibility as a citizen of the world to help those who are less fortunate If you think that makes me a bleeding heart liberal than I m proud to wear that badgeRead this book It will change your life The White Lantern is the epic novel based on the life of Valentino Achak Deng who along with thousands of other children the so called Lost Boys was forced to leave.
