The Little Robber Girl

Well. I tried anyway. I suppose there's that.

I tried many times to read A Long Way Gone, even resorting to the audio version. Regrettably, I just can't get into it. I know his story must be interesting, but his writing style is one that sucks the life of the story away for me. I don't think I've ever managed to get past the part when he's trying to return to his village. Something about a canoe. And some people going the opposite direction, telling him that there's nothing back there.

There's nothing wrong with the book. The style of writing and me form some sort of oil and water thing.
