Burundi, 1992. For ten-year-old Gabriel, life in his comfortable ex-pat neighbourhood of Bujumbura with his French father, Rwandan mother and little sister, Ana, is something close to paradise. These are happy, carefree days spent with his friends sneaking cigarettes and stealing mangoes, swimming in the lake, and riding bikes in the streets they have turned into their kingdom. But dark clouds are gathering over this small country, and soon their peaceful idyll will shatter when Burundi and neighbouring Rwanda are brutally hit by war.

  1. Small Country by Gael Faye

    This story is slow and the writting style is not consistent to what i prefer. Anywho I'm really glad all of that build up it really gave me emotional reactions to things that happened later on, and made me either happy for or afraid for the lives of the characters I was reading about.

    Also, time-wise, I managed to finish this in two days.

    "Take care in the cold ,look after your secrets, may you be rich in all that you read ,in your encounters,in your loves and never forget where you come from..... pg177
