I enjoyed reading this very much. The characters were varied, and unusual, for me. I was glad to see the topic brought up of "how would an American know what the people in poor African villages need?"

An excellent contrast of tribal african life with the busy american life. goes indepth on a personal level of relationships, while trying to solve the mystery of the books.
really makes one think about the important things in life, gives a new perspective.
