I loved this entire book and was only disappointed when it was over. After the initial chapters in which you learn what kind of person Amanda is, the story becomes fascinating, horrifying, uplifting, and disturbing, all at once. I listened to it during my commute to/from work and every day I couldn't wait to get into the car.
Amanda does a great job of reading the book, and because she is the author she really delivers a deep feeling for what the story is about.
Listen to it. You'll love it.

What made the experience of listening to A House in the Sky the most enjoyable?
Voice of author was compelling....true, gritty, vicariously compelling. A can't stop read of life at its most despicable and most enduring. Somalia's reporting is best left for the pro's, but I doubt they would have lived to tell this macabre a story. I heard Richard Engle speak in DC this summer, at the fallen journalists memorial at Newseum; his comments confirmed an even broader belief that this could - and does happen. Lindhout is so naive a character that you want to shake her out of dreamland. When you finally want to hug her, you can't...she's so broken. But then the healing begins.
Which character – as performed by Amanda Lindhout – was your favorite?
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
"House of Light is filled with enough darkness to push us into the outer realms of human belief. The light will come, but in ways that totally surprise you."
