AbhorrenceIn this emotionally charged book Gaël Faye carefully navigates through a modern time where human depravity descended so deep into the abyss Unfortunately it seems human history is littered with wars and atrocities however we sometimes seem to really outdo the horror especially when the cruelty is incited from a systematic national directive of genocide Can we continue to describe this as human In 1994 the racial tensions between Hutu and Tutsi made global news for the brutal massacre of Tutsis by Hutus in Rwanda and to a lesser extent in Burundi What was it really over and was it worth it The shocking uote below when trying to understand the reasons behind the horror illustrates how futile and tragic the whole conflict was “The war between Tutsis and Hutus is it because they don’t have the same land”“No they have the same country”“So they don’t have the same language”“No they speak the same language”“So they don’t have the same God”“No they have the same God”“So why are they at war”“Because they don’t have the same nose” Ten year old Gaby Gabriel lives with his French father Rwandan mother soon to be separated and sister Ana in Bujumbura in Burundi which borders Rwanda In the 1990s Gaby and his 4 other friends Gino Armand and the twins spend time doing what all friends do they argue they play they pick mangoes not always honestly and sell to make money They use an old VW Combi as their H and play the games all children want to They do however get that uneasy feeling when adults get worried and start speaking in whispers when attitudes change and anxiety creeps into everyday life How long can they be shielded from the fear brutality and atrocities that are escalating in Burundi and neighbouring Rwanda NOT FOREVER – pause silence tears “This poisonous lava the thick flow of blood was ready to rise to the surface once We didn’t know it yet but the hour of the inferno had come and the night was about to unleash its crackle of hyenas and wild dogs” Innocence is lostGaël Faye has written a really heartfelt moving and inspiring book dealing with the loss of innocence and dreams when humanity descends to unimaginable depths of depravity The effects on family especially those that have witnessed or narrowly escaped the killings is compassionately narrated in the story This is an absolutely excellent debut wonderfully well written and deserves to be read lest we forget When asked of Hutu militia why do you kill with machetes when you have guns the answer was bullets cost money and they victims are poorMany thanks to Random House UK Vintage Publishing and NetGalley for an ARC version of the book in return for an honest review

This short book is written in the form of a memoir by the 33 year old Gabriel who is now living in France The story is set in Burundi during 1992 and 1993 when Gabriel aged 1011 is living in an expat neighborhood with his younger sister Ana and their French father Michel and Rwandan Tutsi mother Yvonne This is the second book I've read this month about the genocide in Rwanda The first book nonfiction told me that it was the Belgians who had sorted the Rwandans into ethnic groups Tutsis Hutus and Twa pygmies Tutsis and Hutus lived in the same land had the same religion and spoke the same languages so nothing really separated them except some artificial sorting imposed by Europeans on Africans This book doesn't deal with the history of the ethnic conflict other than Michel's opinion that the difference was based on the shape of their noses Actually in the case of each book I felt like I was inspecting a house by looking through a pinhole The stories were very personal and focused but I'm still missing the larger picture Yvonne had to flee Rwanda in 1963 when she was 4 after her family home was burned and she still feels like an outsider in Burundi Perhaps that is why she is the only member of the family who acknowledges the dangers that are coming Gabriel enjoyed a relatively stress free childhood with his friends until a military coup in Burundi wiped out its recent experimentation with democracy and the reports of killings in Rwanda could no longer be ignored The family eventually faced threats of violence from both the Hutus and the Tutsis However the majority of this book is about Gabriel hanging out with his friends and I can't say I really felt his pain when things went badly because there was a certain remoteness in the writing For the most part Gabriel viewed the war with his peripheral vision I received a free copy of this book from the publisher
