    I wanted to like this book than I did I normally love Tracy Kidder books And this book had an incredibly compelling story to tell about a man who escapes genocide in Burundi and amazingly goes on to complete his education and even return to Africa to help rebuild his country Yet somehow the author keeps getting in the way of the story At first describing the main character's journey to America he is a little condescending making Deo seem a little simple when in reality he is a bi lingual former medical school student Later Kidder switches to a first person narrative when he follows Deo on a trip back to Burundi This last third of the book is much about Tracy Kidder than it needs to be Also throughout the book the narrative keeps jumping through time in a way that isn't exactly confusing but is annoying and unnecessary Still the book is gripping simply because the story being told is so remarkable and inspirational I recommend it and will continue to do so until Deogratias writes his own book about the experience
