sorry I missed a week!
I couldn't help it! I finished the book and it was so good. I don't have much time to write now, and I don't want to ruin it for anyone, but it was so compelling!

I guess I am not as far in the book.....
I find myself reading and wanting to hurry and finish the book, but at times I find that I can only read so much...it is definitely not a feel good book. The sorrow and fear that you feel, I can't imagine whats going to happen...well I can...with what the title is. He has just lost one of his friends. The death of Saidu was sad. After being on the run and being so alone for the few days makes us all wonder at the amount of human interaction we need on a daily basis. Having to sleep up in trees and share watering holes with huge snakes is not my idea of fun. But when tested we do what we have to do to survive. But it does make you wonder if you could stand that test...are you strong enough to face those challenges...could I really survive in the forest? Could I run from the fear of the rebels and not get caught?

What is it in the human brain and/or soul that might allow circumstances to dictate the direction of our lives as it did to Ishmael? Are we all victims of our circumstances? How do consciences become so seared? If homeless, hungry and without hope would we join in and ultimately become the monsters that we had originally hated? Would we become "one of them" not just for survival but actually enjoy the evil and cruelty that Ishmael describes in his writings. These questions haunt me as I think of all the "children soldiers" in the world today. Yes, today September 12, 2008 there are children without food, shelter and soon, if not to be already, without remorse. How can I just sit here and not do anything about it? What could I do to change the world? A point to ponder.
