This is how wars are fought now: by children, hopped-up on drugs and wielding AK-47s. Children have become soldiers of choice. In the more than fifty conflicts going on worldwide, it is estimated that there are some 300,000 child soldiers. Child soldiers have been profiled by journalists, and novelists have struggled to imagine their lives. But until now, there has not been a first-person account from someone who came through this hell and survived. Ishmael Beah, now 25 years old, tells how at the age of twelve, he fled attacking rebels and wandered a land rendered unrecognizable by violence. By thirteen, he'd been picked up by the government army, and Beah, at heart a gentle boy, found that he was capable of truly terrible acts.--From publisher description.… (mehr)

Sad, true story about a boy growing up and becoming a drugged murderer because of circumstances beyond his control
  yramberg | Aug 15, 2022 |
Rare is it to learn all about a nation by the tale of terror of war, loneliness, grief, and starvation told by a boy who walked much of the country first to try to escape the horror and then to take part in it. Ishmael was forced to become a soldier at 13, under the heavy influence of drugs continuously killing, killing, killing. It’s a heartbreaking true story about a boy who had a decent childhood forced into this macabre circumstances when he and his friends were on their way to participate in a talent show. Exceedingly smart, he has a photographic memory and could recite orations from Shakespeare at the age of 7. Fortunate enough to be released from soldiering and going through drug withdrawal he used all of his mental resources and bravery to get where he is today—a world-famous author and humanitarian. This is a very emotional hard but important book. Highly recommended. ( )

Book #1 for my new book club.

I liked the first 10/11 chapters of the book as the author talked about his ways of hiding in the forest. Then for a hot second (a chapter) he is a boy soldier, then the end of the book focuses on his rehabilitation. I wanted to hear more about his time as a soldier and not told in a type of flashback. That was my main issue with the book. It is still a good book to read. I was just let down a tad bit. ( )

This is an amazing tale of tragedy and survival and proves once again that the human spirit can avail over anything. I would heartily recommend this book right alongside Dave Eggers' "What is the What". They deal with very similar stories and are both incredibly well written. ( )

This is one of those 100 books you are supposed to read according to Amazon. 12-year old Ishmael Beah was a child soldier from Sierra Leone. After being separated from his immediate family, who are likely dead, he goes on the run with some other kids, eventually aligning with soldiers as his new family. Killing becomes his way of life until he is rescued and rehabilitated. Through a series of lucky breaks, he is reunited with his uncle's family and then becomes involved with UN efforts to help children globally. Amazing story, but overly graphic and longer than necessary. ( )

The book, A Long Way Gone: Memoir of a Boy Soldier, is a story about how a boy at a young age had to witness something major that was taking place in Africa, his homeland. This leave the audience shocked because he explains what he went through as a child and how it affected him as the war went by. For the ones who have read this book understand the struggle that the main character, Ishmael, Ishmael Beah, went through. He was separated from his family and was taken in by the group who would kill the rebels to survive. The rebels are known as the ones who started the war.

To the memories of Nya Nje, Nya Keke, Nya Ndig-ge isa, and Kaynya. Your spririts and presence within me give me strength to carry on,

to all the children of Sierra Leone who were robbed of their childhoods,

and to the memory of Walter (Wally) Scheuer for his generous and compassionate heart and for teaching me the etiquette of being a gentleman
