This wasn't what I was expecting at all. The parts of the book that are set in London are a little reminiscent of the Bridget Jones books, but the African parts are just so powerful. Incredibly hard to read – and particularly depressing given that it's now two decades after this was published and things still haven't changed.

Challenging, but well worth it. ( )

This is gutsily written, and highly informative when it comes to the ins and outs of running a refugee camp, and the difficulty of raising awareness and money when people aren’t seen to be “starving enough”. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that tackles the subject with quite such zeal. It was an eye-opener. And yet the storyline back in London, where the narrator gets involved in an emotionally abusive relationship with a media personality and rubs noses with all sorts of flamboyant (and almost universally dislikeable) slebs, sits uncomfortably alongside it. Both were well written, but despite the fact that having the celebs come over and support an emergency appeal was a key part of the novel, the two strands of the story felt horribly jarring. Maybe it’s significant that there is a nostalgic feel to the London sections with the yuppie culture (at its height when the novel came out), and that only recently have questions started to be seriously posed about “white saviours” and the focus on celebrities by organisations like Comic Relief. Either way, an informative read but one that never felt quite like a rounded whole. ( )

This was a very quick and easy read about British aid workers in Africa. It was such an easy read I would recommend it to anyone, but especially to those who've worked in the non-profit international development or aid communities. ( )

Interesting book where famine relief work is juxtapositioned with true chick lit episodes. ( )

I actually liked this better than [b:Bridget Jones's Diary|227443|Bridget Jones's Diary|Helen Fielding|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51J5NZ2MJ4L._SL75_.jpg|3185154]. I believe it was a less-successful earlier novel that was republished after Bridget's success. The setting among relief workers in Africa is both unusual and lends a certain gravitas to what is, essentially, "chick lit." But good chick lit. ( )

It used to seem extraordinary to me that someone like Henry could actually exist, extraordinary that a person could be transported into an environment so alien to his own, and remain to utterly unaffected by his surroundings.
