Of the people within the village either Resent Are Afraid Of Are Bemused Are Afraid Of Or Are Bemused afraid of are bemused the idea of white doctors coming over with drugs to treat illnesses that they have only seen illing people The book is largely told from Jonny s perspective but we do get a few interviews and moments with Sizwe a young black man who is a shop owner and who is pretty skeptical of HIV testing and treatment in general He s a fairly standard example of most locals and Steinberg finds his views on life death and everything in between to be fascinatingOne of the interesting things I enjoyed about this book were the moments of facts vs the moments of anecdote and story This certainly felt to me like it was telling you a story of a village and the slowly but noticeably shifting viewpoints but it also felt very readable when the factual moments popped in too Sometimes I feel like non fiction leans too heavily on fact but I think this does have a good balance of fact and anecdote to really tell you the viewpoints of the people living through what is essentially an AIDs epidemic Overall a very solid read and one I am happy I picked up becuase of this prize I would definitely recommend it if you re interested in the topic of HIV and AIDs yourself 4s A stunning accomplishment so subtle I woke up early to read it Stayed up late It s the ind of book which makes me wish I didn t give 5 stars so readily as so many of them compared to this book are only 4s Love Steinberg s imaginative use of language sometimes old fashioned but the rhythm moves one along This review is actually for the non US version of this book Three Letter Plague I don t think there are any differences between the two versions though other than the title and probably the spelling of some words that differ from American EnglishThis one is a fascinating look on a micro level the politics and social implications of HIV testing in rural South Africa and the realities of rural health care I really liked getting to now the people of the story and how they live and how they see the world including how they marry the traditional with the modern This one is not an overall look at HIV and stigma and the epidemic in South Africa it only looks at one small corner of one corner of South Africa so you can t expect it to give you that but it does give you a very personal view of how one young adult approaches HIV and the ultimate uestion of whether or not to test and the health system that exists that could support him This is a great addition to HIVAIDS literature that often doesn t give you a detailed psychological picture of one person and the world in which that person lives often you see macrolevel analysis or superficial case studies This is neither of those and goes very deep into the life of the subject Defini.
