Reading 'What is the What'

It's been about over a month since we were given 'What is the What' to read. I have read almost 300 pages and so far, I think the book is going okay.

In the book, there are some parts that I like and some parts that I find extremely boring, to be honest. The parts I enjoyed the most were the ones told by the older Achak about how he got to Ethiopia and the stories about the lost boys and the things they encountered. I found the part where he talked about his sponsors in America really boring and I soon got confused about what was going on. I really didn't like the parts when Achak described the elephant and the hyenas attacking a dead body. They were probably a bit too descriptive for me to read.

My favorite part was when Achak's home was taken over by the Murhaleens and he had to run away. It was a real cliff hanger and I was thrilled to read more, to see what would happen to Achak.

'What is the What' is not the type of book I would pick up to read by choice, but so far I guess it's going okay. Some parts are action-packed, while the others could put you to sleep (in my opinion). I look forward to seeing what comes next.
