    1. The premise of this book is wonderful and looking at each of these amazing refugee's stories individually is fascinating and, despite the violence and hard situations they have left, their stories fill the reader with hope. However, for me, The Lucky Ones, as a whole, was "too much": too many countries and tribe references that, in my ignorance, I can't track; too heavily weighted in religion; told in the refugees' voice and not re-written leaves the finished product too unpolished for the lengt [...]

    2. These eighteen accounts were mostly from refugees (one was an adoptee, another was a religious fundamentalist who came for church reasons). I liked almost all the accounts, though some, like the christian fundamentalist one, were a curious choice to include. My absolute favourite ones came from Asumani from Burundi, Raymond from Chad, Muuxi from Somalia - their stories are amazing.

    3. Inspiring to read stories of people who have truly persevered and hoped. I also loved putting a personal story to some of the faces of Winnipeg's newcomers.
