It’s hard living in Australia to truly comprehend just how bad people in some other countries have it. This book is a smack in the face to grasp that reality. The extraordinary suffering and never ending adversity the writer describes is hard to get your head around. It’s just one devastating hit after another. I don’t understand why he had children when he could barely feed himself. The epilogue is quite full of anger and despair at the miserable life the writer has been dealt. How could he feel any other way?
