The Dark Child:The Autobiography of an African Boy

This book is a few of the memories of Camara Laye's childhood in Guinea. It's a simple book, and quite short, and I thought it was a touch underwhelming, although there really wasn't anything in particular that I didn't like. But I wasn't caught up in it. It's worth reading though to see a tiny glilmpse into one boy's experiences growing up in Guinea in the 1930s.

Sometimes, those short ones are the best. Not enough to weigh them down, or bore you. On the other hand, not enough to really grab you, either.
