Disclosure: I received an ebook copy of this book as well as a DVD of Miss Sarajevo in exchange for my review.
[show-book title=”Fools Rush In”]
There is no denying it – this book is long. Very long. I tend to think of myself as a rather quick reader, but this book easily took me a week, if not a little over a week, to read. But I wouldn’t put it down if you asked me to!
Fools Rush In is unlike any book I have ever read.
Bill Carter doesn’t have to go to Sarajevo. He doesn’t even need to be in that part of the world. But he choose to. He decides that is what he wants to do.
He joins a group of men that deliver food and water to the people that are stuck in the midst of this war, but as time goes on… things change for the author. The purpose for him being there changes.
Fools Rush In shows a side of battle that not many people witness. The author isn’t on the battle lines. He isn’t fighting in the war, but he is right in the middle of it.
The author uses his book and his documentary (and his time in the war zone) as a means to bring attention to what is going on. While the rest of the world buried their head in the sand, Bill Carter was in the middle of it all with the people.
Fools Rush In will definitely give the reader a different perspective.
