Left to Tell is an autobiography by Immaculée Ilibagiza, recounting her life from early childhood to how she became a survivor of the Rwandan Holocaust, and found God during the darkest time in her life.
This autobiography is nothing short of amazing. The writing style makes you keep turning the page, wanting to learn more about each person and see what happens next. I have never been so enthralled by a biography or autobiography, usually I find the facts boring and dull. This account is both enjoyable to read and has a first-hand witness to the horrors of the genocide, which in my opinion is hard to do.
I do not think this book is for everyone, but I would suggest it--I initially did not think it would be something I would enjoy reading, but decided to give it a chance. I am glad I did.
*Note* This book does not attempt to shove religion down your throat, but it does talk about religion quite a bit. I would suggest this book even to those without religious ties, because the entire story is so worth reading.
