so, just finished reading one of the better novels I've read in a long time - The Power of One, by Bryce Courtenay. Its an awesome story of a white, English-speaking boy growing up in the mid 20th century in South Africa. While it focuses primarily on his experiences and his growth as an individual it gives a rare glimpse into the history of prejudice in that racially torn country. This is a definite must if you are a reader. 5 out of 5 stars, for sure!
on another note, if you happen to read this, and know of any job opportunities in the greater Phoenix area, I'd really appreciate it! So far haven't had much luck in the occupation of person seeking occupation and would appreciate all the help I can get!
