This book is real interesting with how it started out in the center of the story. It is very descriptive making it come to life as if you are there experiencing it right beside them. The theme I am going with for the book, A Long Way Gone is community. In the United States, being a developed country with the advancement in technology and massive farmings and just taking care of our families we tend to take what relationships we should have with the people around us for granted. In the book they lost family members and friends who were there everything the people in the village who all would work together to help everyone out. Talking face to face with one another and helping each other is dissipating. Reading this book makes you realize the importance of people and the things they do for you. The saying " It takes a community to raise a child" Is very true. Parents do a big part and so do teachers. Neighbors will give their words of wisdom with their life experiences. I love to be connected with all the people around me. I could not imagine coming back and them being all gone.
