I read this in high school and it is by far one of my favorite memoirs.

paul rusesabagina is pretty incredible. hearing the story of hotel rwanda from the man himself was really interesting. he himself says the movie is accurate, but i still learned a lot of new things about his story.

I was trying to expand my non-fiction horizons last year. This was the autobiography of the man who inspired the movie Hotel Rwanda. It's kind of a gut-renching recollection of the Rwandan Genocide, but incredibly moving. I could've sworn I had bought it, but it doesn't appear to be on my bookshelf...*shrug*

Absolutely incredible. The line "I should have recognized a Rwandan no when I heard it," absolutely tore me to pieces. Should be required reading in schools and by everyone who was alive during this horrific event in 1994.

A remarkable book about the man who is fictionalized in the movie Hotel Rwanda. This is him in his own words. He saved 1,268 people from the genocide that was going on in his country, while leaders of our government and the UN stood by and did nothing. This was only 22 years ago. I'm always in awe of people who survive horrific situations and retain their human dignity. Many could learn from this man's courage in the face of true injustice. This book will stay with me for a long time.

dark emotional informative inspiring sad tense slow-paced
I hate biographies and autobiographies. i don’t care how cool your story is, once you tell me it’s true i immediately lose interest. and i feel awful about it because this man is all inspirational and shit but i just can’t enjoy the book. there are so well written lines and his perspective is really interesting and i’ll definitely watch the movie because his story is really cool, i just did not enjoy the book. it could also be because it was assigned to me, once you tell me i have to read something i suddenly do not want to read it but whatever.
