    1 thought on “Snakepit”

    1. A brutal book, about a brutal time and place. Good novel, and one that explores the insecurity of tough guys, but really gives a sense of the desperation of Uganda at the time.

    2. Exciting and for Westerners a thorough insight into the culture of Uganda. Something like "the last king of Scotland", showing a side we never get to see.

    3. A book that's really about its setting, where so many others center on plot or characters. 1970s Uganda -- a crazy, horrific, and still realistic-feeling time and place. I didn't give a hoot about any of the characters, but like I said, that wasn't the point.

    4. A raw portrait of the virulent corruption and madness in Uganda under Idi Amin by a Ugandan who survived.

    5. I enjoyed reading this book, but it was nowhere near as exciting as Abyssinian chronicles by the same writer.

    6. It was difficult to get into at first but quickly became very suspenseful. Great detail and showed a very truthful,violent side to Uganda under Amin.

    7. Too depressing for me. It's a novel about the dark world of corruption during Idi Amin's era of dictatorship.
