Hope you’re not getting tired of book reviews.

What Is The What by Dave Eggers is definitely one of the best books I’ve read this year. It’s the story of a displaced Sudanese boy refugee who is brought for resettlement to the United States. It is a true story. Don’t miss that single description: It is a true story.

The journey Achak Deng (the lead character) takes across Africa and then to the United States is heart-breaking, heart-warming and at all times gripping. For me personally, I continue to have my eyes opened to the reality of much of the rest of the world.

Perhaps we’re all journeying to discover what is the what?
