    (PDF/EPUB) [The Bite of the Mango] You know I actually really found myself enjoying this bookWhile the writing was not superb the ideas and people within the novel were moving Sometimes it's important to take a step back from your own life and look at the true harrowing life stories of others This was one of those stories for meI think one of the most interesting parts of this book is its connection to A Long Way Gone Memoirs of a Boy Soldier I didn't even realize

I don t know how this one slipped past me and I haven t read it so I m glad I pulled it off the shelf to read this summer It s a slim book but a powerful story and while the narrative seemed a little stilted the story remains the same the trauma of war in Sierra Leone completely took away the hope of Kamara until she was able to find it again with a dose of resiliency and knowing that people were listening all across the globe to the atrocities of civil war in her country Kamara s hands were cut off by the rebel group as a way to force people to not vote but Kamara wasn t even a teenager and didn t even know whatwho a president was She was also raped by a man hoping to take Kamara as a bride She birthed a boy named Abdul and while he did die before his first birthday she wanted to make sure the story was told she was not raped by the rebel soldiers who cut off her hands this was a familiar rape but one that she didn t comprehend until people gave her words for it The book discusses religion female genital mutilation family dynamics including men take multiple wives friendship perseverance and Ishmael Baeh And while it provides enough information to understand the war I think it could have been fleshed out for the unaware who are seeking to learn

Mariatu Kamara ↠ 4 Download

The Bite of the Mango Download Ñ 104 As a child in a small rural village in Sierra Leone Mariatu Kamara lived peacefully surrounded by family and friends Rumors of rebel attacks were no than a distant worry But when 12 year old Mariatu set out for a neighboring village she never arrived Heavily armed rebel soldiers many no older than children themselves attacked and tortured Mariatu During this brut. Mariatu Kamara grew up in a remote village in Sierra Leone with her aunt and uncle The civil war raging in neighbouring Liberia spilled over to Sierra Leone and the 12 year old girl was eventually caught up in the war losing both her hands This is the story of how Kamara faced up to her losses during the war and how she overcame the challenges facing her to make a good life for herself and for othersThe RUF attacked anyone who was not with them and cut off their hands so that they couldn t vote WTF the election slogan of the President being Power is in your hands The book is heartwarming and for me the crowning moment was when Kamara met Ishmael Beah a former child soldier turned activist His book is a classic on the Sierra Leone war and he inspired Kamara to tell her own storyBut despite it s obvious interest I found the narrative very remote from the reader Kamara s voice doesn t often come through clearly The worst part was when a social worker sits down Kamara and goes through the history of the country with her It s such a cringeworthy contrived device A lot of explanations were overly simplified so I wish Kamara never attempted it in the first placeOne thing that sadly stood out was that it was the war that set Kamara free despite the loss of her hands She was going to be sold off to a friend of her aunt and uncle who basically also raped her If the war hadn t happened when it did I don t see how Kamara could have had a future Other girls didn t get this opportunity and still face these restrictions Kamara s narrative that she would simply have married her childhood sweetheart is simply delusional and sadI was uite annoyed at the end where the was a piece about how traditional village life that respected women so much has been destroyed by the war I just wish people would stick to facts and not romanticise in such books I suppose Kamara got raped and had no control over her life because she was oh so respected No doubt life became worse but according to the descriptions in this book the respect was non existent in the first placeI m glad that Kamara has made a good life for herself where she can make her choices and is helping others too But let s not forget all those other people in Sierra Leone who are still struggling with corruption lack of infrastructure violence and patriarchy
