    Diamond Boy Epub Ò ç PDF women1.pro diamond book, Diamond Boy EpubIt’s been a while since I was so deeply moved by a novel I’ve read a lot of good books but few as emotionally intense this one The narrator a Zimbabwean teenager goes from an ordinary life in which he attends high school runs on the cross country team and is getting involved with a girl for the first time to the diamond mines of Marange at the instigation of his stepmother She shows contempt for Patson’s father a teacher and his uiet intellectual ways Her demand to move the family in search of wealth is based on The Great Marange Diamond Rush and the brutal actions of President Robert Mugabe’s soldiers are also based on actual events After you read this when you hear the phrase “blood diamonds” you’ll know what it means if you didn’t already and when you hear the phrase “conflict free diamonds” you’ll understand why that matters Patson’s transformation from regular kid to diamond miner and beyond are told in his narration

    Diamond Boy Epub Ò ç PDF women1.pro diamond book, Diamond Boy EpubThis book took me on a roller coaster of an emotional ride The story is compelling and the characters are well drawn and believable There are thrills and excitement fears and horrors as we follow young Patson's journey from Bulawayo to the Marange diamond fields and ultimately to Cape Town Tragedy strikes him at almost every turn and the reader might wonder whether Patson's situation can get any worse but there is timely resolution and the ultimate ending is satisfyingAlthough a work of fiction none of the events should stretch the reader's imagination too far The events and situations described have happened in Zimbabwe in the very recent past The story brings home the real horror and brutality of a corrupt regime of those who survived and those who didn'tThis book will stay with me for a long time and I will be seeking out Michael Williams's companion book 'Now is the Time for Running'
