Kaffir Boy: The True Story of a Black Youth's Coming of Age in Apartheid South Africa by Mark Mathabane
Kaffir Boy: The True Story of a Black Youth's Coming of Age in Apartheid South Africa

kfollis1688, October 17, 2011

This book is an excellent insight to the life of a black South African boy living during Apartheid. While the story is extremely eye-opening, it is a learning tool that enables people to see beyond their own comfortable existence and into a forbidden world of oppression and secrets. The main reason I came across this book was for a political science class, specifically politics of Africa. If you are willing to expand your understanding of the conditions people are sometimes forced to endure, then this is a great book for you. Your heart will bleed for this boy and the struggle he went through.

Larousse Advanced Dictionary French-English/Anglais-Francais by Larousse Bilingual Dictionaries
Larousse Advanced Dictionary French-English/Anglais-Francais

I am a third year French student in college and I struggled to find the perfect dictionary. It wasn't until my teacher brought out her Bible-like dictionary that I was exposed to the wonders of this book. This dictionary has absolutely everything! From common phrases to idioms to even texting-- everything! Now more than ever I feel confident in turning in my French homework and being able to translate correctly. I know that without the Larousse Advanced Dictionary that my last year of upper-division French would be torture! Buy this book, it is literally worth its weight in gold!
