Doss greed and the ends people willo to in order to maintain power I enjoyed each character s struggles and perspectives While none of them were unexpected they were realistic which was fine because I wasn t expecting a thriller The style was also interesting as it flipped between a third person perspective of Nicholas and the first person narrative. Who decides what is right How do we judge our actions And how do we live with ourselves when things o wrong Following his father's death troubled idealist Nick abandons his safe London life for a remote desert village in Africa.

The Water ThiefWill long live in my heart and memory This is one of the most thought provoking soul searching books I ve ever readThis is most thought provoking soul searching books I ve ever readThis is masterpiece of a novel exuisitely written intense and profound a book that should be reuired reading for all It should be iven every prestigious award for literary excellence I most highly recommend itThis book was iven to me by the publicist in return for an honest review Nick is a thirtysomething professional in England after his father s death he decides to take a one year sabbatical to volunteer his professional expertise as an architect on a construction project in Africa Nick is recently engaged in isn t really sure where his life is headed Upon his arrival in the town in an unnamed African nation he starts to see how different life is from when he rew up with and knows back homeThe construction work that he is managing moves slowly and it is marked by many of the features of the developing world foreign expertise low skilled local labor and its challenges leadership corruption and misguided ambition As if that weren t enough Nick also feels challenged faces challenges with the family who is hosting him in their home Despite having a fianc e back home he starts an affair with his host s wifeAs the months progress a drought Prisoner of Midnight grows in the country and everyone must buy fresh water from theovernor s monopoly water supply company There is no well or other sources of water so without the water trucks there is no water for irrigation cleaning cooking or drinking The overnor claims benevolence by selling water but makes a tidy profit on the backs of the villagers with no choiceThe author paints a rather although sadly realistic of how close to the edge of survival millions of people live in the developing world There seems to be some foreign money as well as some well intentioned people enuinely trying to help Confessions of an Air Ambulance Doctor get harsh it is a lack of resources and fundamentally the selfishness of human nature that keeps people stuck where they areNick desperately wants to address the water shortage by drilling the well in the village When he can tet funding by reuest decides to borrow from the hospital s construction fund do itAs he starts the drilling project everything starts to fall apart his work is relationships the stability of the village everything Told in rather straightforward prose with occasional color descriptions the story also changes from third person to first person narration of the preadolescent son of Nick s host family showing his person effective as he also comes of age in the storyIt feels like you re almost in the story feeling the heat in the sun beating down on the dry dusty air bakes in the hot winds of the African SahelIt s hard to stay where this leaves the reader hopeful or helpless relieved or agitated happy or sad By capturing the complexity nuance and challenges of life in developing Africa the author does an important service to the people of that continent She shows how the conspiracy of Mr. Jelly's Business geography weather religion Western influence and corruption have constrained and restrain the people of Africa for years and reflects on the missed opportunity of the future without some kind of radical change in one or of these elements That is not to say that this change is easier likely in fact even the degree of possibility of change is subject to debateAnyone who is interested in Africa or the complexities of life in the developing world would enjoy this book while a may not uite rise to the level of moral fiction it certainly is a worthwhile and valuable read Well I know what road is paved withood intentions That is not a spoiler for as soon as this novel opens Nicholas is being dragged away escorted by police The rest of the story jumps back to tell the tale Nicholas a young engineer leaves London and his fiancee to take on an engineering assignment in an unnamed by perhaps west African country He stays with a local family in a small village and develops attachments When a drought hits he is driven to put his engineering skills to use even as the local overnor charges outrageously for water the villagers can t afford As much as anything this is about the idealism of youth and as much as anything I ll just call it first world privilege Nicholas s desire to fix his own life by fixing the lives of the people in his new culture t Although this book lagged at times for me it held my interest by the end as this played out My rating is 3 stars because I really didn t like most of the characters I found Jojo hard to relate to but that s probably not the author s fault for I don t relate well to most 12 13 year old boys unless they are nerds or eeks. T's lonely wife But when he realizes a water well could offer a way out for the village and redeem his uilty conscience he takes matters into his own hands It's a decision that changes everything for him and for everyone he lov. Of JoJoI do have to admit that It Took Me Longer Than Normal To took me longer than normal to this one While the writing was ood and the plot engaging I didn t feel myself compelled to keep reading It is uncommon for me to find it difficult to pick up a book but I did with this oneThere was also one little piece that bothered me and that was that the location of the village where Nicholas oes is left very vague All that is said is that it is somewhere in the African desert No specific country is even mentioned which reminded me too much of the fact that many people in America think that Africa itself
