The opening of the book talks about how the rest of the world doesn't know about the tragedy of Darfur and what it's people have to go through every day. The aim of the book was to open eyes to those of us who don't know a lot about the situation. I was interested in reading a bit about the place and seeing what they had to go through, but what I got was face shots and simple explanations of the pictures like:
Woman selling goods at market.
A woman selling items at the market.
Women have to get up early to get to the market.
Children ready to go to school.
It just didn't open up my eyes to the situation there. It just showed me random face shots, of happy people, and simple captions.
The forward was neat though because it taught me a bit more about my governor.
