This novel has done for me what many I've read lately have done, helped me to lose myself and experience to an extent the struggles of people in a totally different cultural setting. If I were watching a film of the same story, the color of the person's skin would always be there to remind me of the barriers. With the novel, I get inside the person's head and see things through their eyes. This is challenging, and while difficult at times, is overall a good thing for me. My hope is that what I learn from reading books like this will bear fruit in my daily life and help me to overcome those barriers.
