Críticas:

'A sobering, ultimately optimistic exploration of a crisis amplified by poverty and misinformation' Independent on Sunday 'Searingly honest, you'll find it hard not to be touched by the award-winning novelist and doctor Uzodinma Iweala's account of the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa' Pride Magazine 'In this unassuming but important book, Uzodinma Iweala gives the AIDS pandemic not just a human face but a human voice' Times Literary Supplement This is a work of visceral urgency and power: it heralds the arrival of a major talent Amitav Ghosh on BEASTS 'So scorched by loss and anger that it's hard to hold and so gripping in its sheer hopeless lifeforce that it's hard to put down.' Ali Smith, Guardian, on BEASTS 'This is an extraordinary book ... horrifying expose ... vivid ... It casts a powerful, if gruesome spell' Sunday Telegraph, on BEASTS 'Gives a name, a voice and a heart to one of Africa's innumerable child soldiers ... This is urgent writing, starkly unsentimental and convincing' Observer on BEASTS 'This sad, unforgettable novel is a fitting testament to the countless Agus who continue to kill and be killed across that most tragic of continents.' Daily Telegraph on BEASTS 'Stream-like sentences that convey irrestible, rushing activitiy ... Iweala's powerful debut recalls Saro-Wiwa's first-person masterpiece of a soldier-boy' The Times on BEASTS 'A searing first novel' Independent on BEASTS 'Written with the authority of someone who knows what they're talking about' London Review of Books on BEASTS 'A simple and brutal account of war ... Beasts of No Nation is a raw, compelling first novel' Literary Review on BEASTS

Reseña del editor:

HIV/AIDS has profoundly affected life in sub-Saharan Africa. It has been reported as one of the most destructive diseases in recent memory - tearing apart communities and ostracising the afflicted. But the emphasis on death, despair and destruction hardly captures the many and varied impacts of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Award-winning novelist and doctor Uzodinma Iweala embarks on a remarkable journey in Nigeria meeting individuals and communities that are struggling daily to understand both the impact and meaning of the disease. He speaks with people from all walks of life, those living with HIV/AIDS and those who aren't, doctors, nurses, truck drivers, sex workers, shopkeepers, students, parents and children who are all trying to make sense of life, love, and our connections to each other as people in the face of an unprecedented epidemic. Beautifully written and heart-breakingly honest, Our Kind of People goes behind the headlines of this epidemic to show the real lives affected by it, illuminating the scope of the crisis and a continent's valiant struggle.
