Sozaboy Sozaboy is a story about a young African boy that tells his story in horrible broken English This is a well written story that has a mix of adventure and a large amount of emotion spread through the story This story starts out with Sozaboy telling his life story in his village As the story unfolds there is a very important scene in the book when Sozaboy goes into one of his favorite bars and sees a very beautiful girl This girl he decides will be his wife He walks up to her fairly timid and starts talking to her bit she reveals that if she will marry it will be to no one but a soldier For a while after the army starts drafting and Sozaboy takes this as a perfect opportunity to join and then marry the beautiful girl in the bar But soon things change from a wonderful experience to a scary and mixed up chain of events These events consist of when Sozaboy and his friends were hanging out one of the decided to go to a highly ranked officer and steals his alcohol This leads to his friend being killed and then a retaliation of the officer being killed as well There are many different themes in this book One of the most important ones though is the choice of right and wrong This is because through these large amount of conflicts and situations Sozaboy had to reach deep with in him self and decide how to react and whether it was in fact right or wrong Also I would say that love is a definitely a theme due to Sozaboy s wife and leaving the army for them I personally liked this story It was a very appealing story line but did get confusing sometimes due to the language used and having to constantly flip back to the index to translate I also would recommend this book to someone that is a very avid reader and likes conflicts such as war and conflicts in Africa
