The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing John F KennedyThe pool in the title is at a hotel in Kigali Rwandawhere Western ex patsaid workersdiplomats and UN soldiers congregate to get drunk and fornicate with hookers and is set at the time of one of the human races darkest moments The story is told in a noveldocumentary way and centres around Bernhard Valcourt a somewhat jaded Canadian film journalist who lives in the hotel supposedly to make a film about AIDS and a beautiful young waitress Gentille a Hutu who looks like a Tutsi Valcourt is in love with Gentille and as she begins to reciprocate his love and their affair flourishes so the country descends into the bitterfeudal chaos of genocideFor whatever reason Valcourt is in love with Rwanda as much as Gentille and has made many friends both Hutu and Tutsi but it is a country already decimated by AIDS where up to a third of the population is either dead or dying Howeverthere are also nightly sectarian murders and rapes taking place until the Hutus decide to enact their own final solution There are certainly some fairly gratuitous sex and some brutal murders but overall it is not sensationalist but rather matter of fact as the author prefers to let the facts to speak for themselves This book reveals a myriad of human emotions including lovekindnessfriendship ignoranceangerhatredcorruption and apathy but most of all a joy of lifea desire to live life to the full whatever the circumstances They know they are going to die so why not enjoy yourself along the wayAs the country descends into anarchy the reader certainly feels like screaming at the Western agencies who missed so many opportunities to stop the madness before it could really get started but for whatever were unwilling to do so Thus the book is pretty scathing deservedly so IMHOof them and of post colonial attitudes where black lives are seen as being cheap and of little importance Perhaps this is just the author s own bias but I fear notNow initially I will admit that I struggled with all the names fearing that I would lose track of who is who but I need not have worried as once the action begins in earnest this becomes less importantThe writing is succinct rather than floweryIf this book had purely been one of fiction then it would probably be laughable but given that the main premis was rooted in fact makes it all the harrowingThis is one of the best books that I ve read in a while and deserves a greater audience
