so I am a junior at BART. I can be really good at writing, when I know what to write about. Reading is not my thing at all.

The book, King Leopold's Ghost, by Adam Hochschild is about the brutal experience for both the Africans and the whites visiting in the Congo during King Leopold's ruling. For Africans, what the white men, King Leopold's workers, were doing to them is what was so brutal. But not so much for those white men who were doing it, they believed they were doing the right thing. On the other hand, other white men who went to visit the Congo were appalled by what they seen. Hochschild has a way to change viewers feelings on human nature. Not only does he do this for the charters in the book, but he also does it for the readers of the book.
