MY REVIEW of Running for my life one lost boy’s journey from the killing fields of sudan to the Olympic games by Lopez Lomong with Mark Tabb.

I am very glad that booksneeze has given me an opportunity to write of this New York time’s No.1 best seller book.  In this book Lopez Lomong showed us faith in himself A faith that could move mountains. He believed in God in every harsh situation. How his life changed as a boy captured by Sudanese rebels and forced him to eat with dust and sand in his food. How other boys have been death and with the help of his
2 angles he escaped from the camp. Lopez is living a very lucky life.

I think its more of a self help book, it’s beyond inspirational. One of the thing I liked most is that lopez never once asked “why me” instead he accept every situation and fully trusted on God. Its interesting god helped him when he needs more. Lopez demonstrates the importance of leaning on God in all times and power of trusting in God’s mercy and faithfulness. Men, women, athletes, non athletes, everyone can take something out of this story.
