Descrição do produto


For fans of Half of a Yellow Sun, a stunning novel set in 1930s Somalia spanning a decade of war and upheaval, all seen through the eyes of a small boy alone in the world.

Aden,1935; a city vibrant, alive, and full of hidden dangers. And home to Jama, a ten year-old boy. But then his mother dies unexpectedly and he finds himself alone in the world.

Jama is forced home to his native Somalia, the land of his nomadic ancestors. War is on the horizon and the fascist Italian forces who control parts of east Africa are preparing for battle. Yet Jama cannot rest until he discovers whether his father, who has been absent from his life since he was a baby, is alive somewhere.

And so begins an epic journey which will take Jama north through Djibouti, war-torn Eritrea and Sudan, to Egypt. And from there, aboard a ship transporting Jewish refugees just released from German concentration camp, across the seas to Britain and freedom.

This story of one boy's long walk to freedom is also the story of how the Second World War affected Africa and its people; a story of displacement and family.

5.0 de 5 estrelas The real story of Africa... 12 de fevereiro de 2015
Por Hjordis Fammestad - Publicada na Amazon.com

As you're looking at this book, you may be as interested in African writers as I am. I highly recommend that you investigate as many as possible because I have yet to read one that isn't brilliant. The beauty of the writing, the complexity of this story by Nadifa Mohammed is a must read in understanding the culture of Somalia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, etc. beginning in the 1930's. I also highly recommend the other book I have read by her, The Orchard of Lost Souls.

Read this book as a book club selection. Stumbled over the middle eastern names a bit until the dynamics began to flow. Actually, my ignorance, I'm sure. Historical accounts most interesting. Cultural insights excellent. After completing this novel, I read more about the author and learned that it's a semi-biographical story about her father. Had I realized that before reading, I think the story would have had an even greater effect on me. I recommend it.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Passport to Paradise? 26 de fevereiro de 2011
Por Coordinator Clive - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
A beautiful, elegantly written poigant story, which underlines 'white man's' stupidity in not recognising all people on Earth are equal irrespective of their color, creed or religious belief. Mocked, beaten and degraded by men revelling in their power, Jama always walked forward into the unknown searching for his father until he was afforded a 'vital piece of paper' that determined where he could or could not go! Thank you Nadifa for a truly outstanding book and which fully deserves to receive accolades by the score. I cannot wait for your next 'story' as I'm sure it will be as rivetting as Black Mamba Boy!

3.0 de 5 estrelas Interesting read 30 de agosto de 2013

I enjoyed the story although (at times) it was rather similar to others of this ilk. The story itself was well presented but there were areas when it became confusing and the ending was rather disappointing.

4.0 de 5 estrelas A latter day Homerian epic 21 de abril de 2016
Por keetmom - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle
Nadifa Mohamed retells a fascinating tale of forgotten history in a literary style evocative of Gabriel Marquez's magical realism accounts of his forebears. In this case, the main character, Jama, is drawn from the true life adventures of Mohammed's father who overcame the worst of poverty, brutality and war in a epic journey through Somalia and Ethiopia in the 1930s. Jama is sustained throughout by a strong sense of destiny, the guiding presence of his late mother and the kindly help of strangers. The language and settings reflect in equal measure half-remembered family legends, reshaped through repeated tellings and the harsh realities of life for a small, vulnerable boy fending for himself. Perhaps a little overlong in the end, "Black Mamba Boy" opens important windows on the past.
