    More than surviving conquering This review is from No One s Son The remarkable true story of a defiant African boy and his bold quest for freedom Paperback NO ONE S SON is one of the impressive memoirs of a survivor of the African wars and aftermath we are likely to see Tewodros Fekadu is a unique young man who dares to share his history a history that few of us would have survived and has turned that history into a testimony of pride for his birth place, continuing his efforts to inform the world of the rich heritage that is Africa In this book we learn about the riches of Ethiopian history tracing back 971 BCE, the time of King Solomon The book can be read on many levels for many reasons not only as a rich source of history form the ancient past as well as from the subsequent centuries and the post World War II atmosphere that is Fedaku s immediate past history.Tewodros Fedaku s writing style is spare, transparent, and immediate and in this memoir he offers an eloquent story of one Ethiopian man s experience of cruelty, displacement, and rejection, but also courage, kindness, love, and success A child of rape, abandoned by his desperate teenage mother, and rejected and tricked by his physician father, Fekadu struggles to survive on the streets, helped by his grandmother, kind stepmother, and always by the church, as civil war rages He crosses the border to Egypt, and then, on a visitor s visa to Japan, he is arrested as an illegal and detained under horrendous conditions for nearly three years, until he falls in love with a young Australian, Anita, and finally gets a visa to her country, and they marry Set against vicious conflicts across borders and within local streets, the moving prose and local idioms make universal connections Returning home to Ethiopia, Fekadu finds that Nothing had changed, but me.Tewodros was born in Eritrea in 1971 and makes it a point to explain the border civil war between his native Eritrea and his adopted Ethiopia He survives abandonment, famine, poverty, and abuse as his path leads from his home in the streets of Ethiopia to adventures in survival in five countries on three continents To his credit as a man of determination he has survived and now lives a richly rewarding life in Australia where he spearheads projects to further world knowledge of his proud Africa.The book is peppered with photographs of Fedaku s ancestors, his own childhood, and his various stages of constant displacement This may not be great literature but it is a book that offers the reader insight into a modern hero Grady Harp

    Anyone who is interested in the experience of an Ethiopian Eritrean through the difficult period of the end of Haile Selassie s reign and the subsequent rule of Mengistu and the communist Dergue will find this book fascinating The author grew up under these regimes and describes his and his family s personal struggles through both periods so difficult it is hard to believe it could just go on and on and on but it does He finally manages to leave Ethiopia and move on to Egypt, then Japan, where his challenges only continue It is amazing that he documented all of this and managed to write about it This book is for someone who has an interest in the country and region and the experiences of refugees who must leave their own countries and start anew somewhere else with no resources, not much education, and very little help.

    This was a compelling, heart wrenching book It is hard to imagine living the kind of life he has and still be able to be positive and forgiving and hopeful.In a nutshell Tewodros grew up in Ethiopia surrounded by war, most of his life His mother was raped and became pregnant with him at the age of 13 The two of them were outcasts and the father always denied that he was the father and never helped in any way It just gets worse from then on But, there is a sense of hope and I will not be done in by this kind of attitude Great read.

    I was really looking forward to reading this but found it needed a good editor Could have been half the length No pace, too much irrelevant detail and rather self obsessed It just couldn t capture my interest no matter how many times I tried to re read.

    An amazing story of one man s story of trying to belongto a family and later to a country The trials that this person has endured and survived are astounding I had the pleasure of meeting him in person and he s story is a wonderful example of defiance and survival A truly amazing story
