"Lost Boy" John Bul Dau’s harrowing experience surviving the brutal horrors of Sudanese civil war and his adjustment to life in modern America is chronicled in this inspiring memoir and featured in an award-winning documentary film of the same name. Movingly written, the book traces Dau’s journey through hunger, exhaustion, terror, and violence as he fled his homeland, dodging ambushes, massacres and attacks by wild animals. His tortuous, 14-year journey began in 1987, when he was just 13, and took him on a 1,000-mile walk, barefoot, to Ethiopia, back to Sudan, then to a refugee camp in Kenya, where he lived with thousands of other Lost Boys. In 2001, at the age of 27, he immigrated to the United States. With touching humor, Dau recounts the shock of his tribal culture colliding with life in America. He shares the joy of reuniting with his family and the challenges of making a new life for himself while never forgetting the other Lost Boys he left behind.… (mais)

Hard to say this, but several of the other Lost Boys memoirs were much more enjoyable. All tough to read and they've survived unimaginable horrors so who am I to judge, but this one managed to be overpoweringly righteous and made him unlikable. ( )

I read this book about a year ago (Fall 2007). I found it to be very uplifting, despite the tribulations the author experienced when he was fleeing for his life and living in refugee camps. I borrowed the video from the library after I completed the book, and found more inspiration there. I recommend this book to all. ( )

This book is absolutely amazing. The author uses a very simple narrative voice to tell a story that is both riveting and terrible. The genocide in Sudan is physically so far from most of the people who will read the book, but John Bul Dau makes his life real to the reader. His story is one that incites awe and admiration for the human spirit, especially his. ( )
