what is the what
i didn't start reading this book because i wanted to be able to talk about the crisis in darfur (didn't even know that's what it was about, in some ways). i actually didn't have any particular reason for picking this up, other than i sat beside a guy on a plane recently who was reading this, and he appeared so visibly moved by what he was reading that i was curious. now i understand. i started reading this book on the plane yesterday, and it's all i've either (a) read whenever i had free time, or (b) thought about at work, wishing i was reading it.
not going to give anything away here, but... wow.
