To Read Or Not To Read; The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind

Updated: Jan 13



Can you imagine being a very poor farmer when suddenly there is a shortage of food and water and your crops won't grow? Keep in mind it is your main source of income. Hi im basil Ahmad from RGG Book Review and today I will review the Book The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind


The author and his colleague have reduced the original book of the same name, which tells the narrative of a creative and caring young man growing up in Malawi during a time of great adversity


This is an amazing book because for starters it gives a clean point of view to the reader. When I was reading the book I started to imagine myself in Africa as a poor farmer and thought what would I do if I was faced with Williams' problems. The author really put a ton of work into the book which makes it worth it to read.


The second reason I love this book is because it relates to a quote I know(the dumbest people are people who sit with illiterate people and make them praise him but the smartest people are the people who sit with smarter people than him and get criticism and fix the errors) William learns and motivates when people tell him he's wrong and cant build the windmill.


The third reason this book was nice to read was the main topic of the book.The book gives the reader a precise understanding of the circumstances of Africa and how everyone should be treated equally. When we are enjoying the electricity, food and water we never consider that people are struggling for food and water and overall basic needs all over the world. The author's choices really help the reader understand the main character's point of view. I would love to recommend this book to everyone I know.



Thank you so much for reading my article for this book out of the thousand others.
