I have just finished reading the book today ….wow……buddy, it can be made into a TV series!
Inspired by fall to dusk childhood stories, this book has become real life events. Aggrey narrates with powerful mind of imagination, the will of a creative thinking and emotions that leaves the reader captured and looking for more. A professor who died a hero, yet with no honor; a greedy Government dissolving every private cosmetic companies leading to joblessness; an arrogant vulgar speaking state president Mutai becoming a poor role model to children, Cultural norms and positions we esteem like being village spokesman, multifaceted giant corruptions that cripple economy, murders, religion, love, relationships, true and fake friendships, society expectations and the daily struggle of going to school and graduating into joblessness are some of the real life events in this book.
The story of Adams in chapter 12 brings to light the reality of a suffering orphan full of dreams. As I read the narration, I was left with an eye opening about real issues we have in society that we ignore, about moral standards and decay we practice daily, the values we keep and the evil that thrives in our minds. Aggrey not only gives us hints on how to be big dreamers, but also what happens to some of us after graduation.
This book is a must read for all. Every one of us will find himself or herself somewhere in this book. Tales have become real. As I keep reading it, my interest level of wanting to do something to help create a second book where Justice has been served, the corrupt have been punished, jobs have been created, heroes die with honor, President Mutai has been sent home packing, cosmetic companies have been revived, corruption free country among others.
I am blessed to have met Aggrey Chepkwony Sambay in person. He is a great speaker and very deep story teller, a gifted listener and a man who is brilliant in all he does”
