Hi, my name is Matthew and I am a freshman. I'm currently undecided on a major, but I am interested in business and law school. I was born and raised in Delaware, Ohio. I am easygoing, I like to travel, try new things, and go new places. I would say my hobby is music. I have a huge appreciation for music of all types and could listen for hours.
The theme in A Long Way Gone that was most apparent to me is war. The book tells how quickly war can change things and how devastating the effects can be. It's important because it tells in a short period of time, how life the boy had once known, was gone and how he is uncertain about his family's well being. To me this means with the issues that he is facing, there will be many more to come in the book, but he continues to persevere.
