    Three stars in Goodreads is “I liked it” and that’s how I feel about it It wasn’t a very exciting book or particularly well written but it was a succinct overview of Nelson Mandela’s life I didn’t know much about him at all so I grabbed this book at the library hoping to expand my knowledge about Mandela and South African politics The book was written chronologically and very matter of factly The trade off for the somewhat boring writing style was the speed at which I finished it I’m sure I only read for 4 6 hours to finish this book; it’s short I came away from the book learning the broad overview of Mandela’s life and about how he helped end apartheid And even though the writing style was bland it moved so uickly that I never got bored with the story I wanted to keep reading I admit that the book left me feeling a bit frustrated with him He wasn’t a perfect character He left his wives alone for long stretches of time and lived off their salaries while he worked at the ANC the political party working to end apartheid He was also mostly absent from his children’s lives I don’t think he attended any of their births; in one instance he dropped his wife off at the hospital and then left He was close to his adult daughters for a time when he was in prison and they seemed to support him and his efforts when they could and the book revealed that one of his daughters criticized him for being so absent once he got released She said she saw him when he was imprisoned than when he was not To me this shows his true priorities were not with his family Yes he certainly and uneuivocally made sacrifices to end apartheid but so did his children and that wasn’t something they could choose for themselves I recommend this book if you want to learn about apartheid about Nelson Mandela or about what South African politics was like from the 1940s through the early 2000s

    I definitely enjoyed this book immensely It encompasses many aspects of Nelson Mandela's life with reader friendly text It is the right amount vehement so that the reader can add their own opinion to the story but will probably lean towards one that the author suggests Although the story is a bit slow I ate this book and all the facts in it up

    It thought this book was great Although it talked about lots of violence it gave a true story about Nelson Mandela While he was in prison he started writing his book The Long Walk To Freedom This book explained his entire life story along with how he became well known for helping make eual rights in South Africa As said this book was incredible

    I learned a lot from this book and wish I would have read it sooner There were some phrases that made it obvious the author wrote from an American perspective but overall it gave a helpful overview of Mandela’s life

    A good book for the basics of South African history and Mr Mandela's life Doesn't dwelve into a lot of depth and good as a beginner's book

    A good book to have a basic understanding of Nelson Mandela's life I recommend this to anyone who wants to dip their toes into his story before fully diving into it

    This is well written and includes a ton of information about Mandela He's an important figure for students to read about for sure but I doubt this book will do a good job of enticing readers who aren't already into history andor biographies It's packed with so much detail which is a good thing but it also feels a bit like so much detail sueezed out any chance of this having a narrative feel Not that non fiction always needs to be narrative in style but I do think it helps to pull in a younger audience So if you're looking for some non fiction to hook a younger reader maybe don't start with this oneTpT Store | Pinterest

    Gormley Beatrice Nelson Mandela South African Revolutionary 237 pgs Aladdin Simon 2015 1799 Language G 0 swears; Mature Content PG; Violence PG NonfictionNelson Mandela was the symbol for antiapartheid in South Africa This simple biography follows him from his childhood through his growing activism his years imprisoned on Robben Island his eventual election as president of South Africa and finally his death at age 95 The book includes a timeline and a glossary at the back I thought the author did a wonderful job of telling one man’s incredibly complex story in a concise manner that will be easy for a young adult reader to understand The book is exactly what it claims to be—the story of Nelson Mandela—and it relates his story without becoming overly political or biased in any way It is written in a style appropriate for a middle school audience but the book would be acceptable for a high school audience as well The book earns its PG rating for the mention of some of the violence and ugliness surrounding apartheid MS—ESSENTIAL; HS—ADVISABLE Reviewer TChttpkissthebookblogspotcom2016
