Personal Opinion
Characters
I really enjoyed this book, because it explain a really important problem in Africa these days. It's exciting to see how this man tries to remove the landmines, and how the people who loves is hurt by them. It transmits the fear with the people lives when they have an advice of landmines.

But, on the other hand, the book is a bit slow and, except the Sibonguile's death, it's a little predictable. There are some chapters that don't have a really interest for the plot, some chapters made to fill pages (Or that is what they transmit). The vocabulary and the descriptions are very simple, not beautiful.


Tendai:
Tendai is the protagonist of the plot, he is an eighteen-year-old boy, in good physical form.

He is a dreamer, a great runner and an exceptional storyteller. He is brave and he never gives up.
