A review by ccastle
An Ordinary Man: An Autobiography, by Paul Rusesabagina, Tom Zoellner


I think what is most shocking to me is that something this awful could happen and the whole world could just turn their back and pretend it wasn't happening. Paul Rusesabagina is a true hero and his account on the events that took place during the Rwandan genocide shows that indeed he was scared too but yet he didn't succumb to the evil and continued to work and protect everyone he could through his words. I do recommend seeing the film Hotel Rwanda as well but this book was definitely an astonishing and quick read and I would recommend it to everyone.
