A Long Way Gone really set me back into my seat. While reading this I was incredibly shocked of how things turned around so fast. From the beginning of chapter 1, that Ishmael Beah had wrote on page 5 said, " Some people felt sorry for them and offered them places to stay, but most of the refugees refused, because they said war would eventually reach our town". When I first read this I was concerned of the way chapter one would end. One major part in chapter one that showed so much imagery would be on page 12 paragraph 3. I won't spoil what happens but the theme of this section would be war. To me this important because it is showing a terror of a story that went from then characters doing what they love turned into a nightmare of returning to a place they used to call home.
