    "Fantasticly honest book and well written!!" I found this book to be quite touching and I can honestly say it took me there. I have always wanted to do something like this author did but admittedly, have always been afraid I would not be able to handle 2 years in area that rural. The author recounted his experience in such a real fashion, I feel now like I could pursue this type of humanitarian venture with realistic expectations. His descriptions and analyses of situations were very honest and observant. I found it refreshing to find a book that didn't occupy itself with the clichés of personal struggle and simply told a story people want to hear. All in all I would highly recommend this book to everyone! ENJOY THE READ!
