If you were remember the 1980s well, then you remember USA FOR AFRICA, WE ARE THE WORLD, and the global fight to help Ethiopia This book turns what you think you know upside down.That s all I am going to say Hiwot Teffera admission Hiwot is a former co worker of mine is a quiet person When she told me she was writing a book about her struggles in Ethiopia and the struggles of her people, I was expecting something along the lines of what I assumed I already knew This is not the case This book not [...]


    2. I don t know who gave this book 5 stars Incoherent from beginning to end piles of fragmented thoughts worst story telling annoying transliteration of Amharic words bad editing the purpose of the book is not even clear Is it about EPRP, Derg, or her lover, or her autobiography Would she have written it better in Amharic I don t know


    3. My best friend Ethiopian born raised recommended this book around Labor Day in 2014, somehow a coincidence relating to the events in the book about labor relations I was impressed by the life in Addis in the early 1970s from the author s perspective She portrays a golden age around campus and life in general What of the beautiful life around the Kissing Pool outside Ras Mekonen Hall and the Cinemas and Discos they raved with her friends in Sidist Kilo Someone take me to the Love street, please W [...]

    6. July 1, 2014 This is a fine book and should be better known than it is.I wrote a blog post about it that you can read by clicking on the thumbnail photo to the left and scrolling down to my blog.


    7. Surreal One of the best books I have read hands down It coming from a local writer makes it even appealing Kudos, Hiwot Teferra Well done.


    8. The book is very explanatory of the situation in Ethiopia starting from the Hailesellasie regime up to the Derg It shows the commitment of that generation to build a utopia It shows the effort of EPRP and other parties at the time to challenge the Derg regime and even their mistakes along the way.


    9. As an Ethiopian I am very proud of you You are daring, brave super women Your trip to Mekele made my hear jump Not only that you made it also manage to record history From the story What made me really sad is the death of Getachew How could one does such kind of evil thing when at the same time say we are struggling to provide freedom to people
