I enjoy books that I can learn about different cultures and areas of the world. This book is centered on Kinshasha Congo. There is a struggle between the government and ethnic rebels. The story is generally well written with a diverse cast of solid characters. I think the plot flows very well. I have heard of the ethnic issues between tribes in Africa and enjoyed reading about how it is manifested.
My only negative is that there is a Volume Two with a URL included at the end of the book. The link takes you to amazon.com but it doesn't work. I searched for Volume Two but was unable to find it. I would have purchased it. So my rating is 4 stars because I feel the story was unfinished. The author did separate the two volumes at a good point but I would have liked to read the whole story.
