Amazon Top 100 Hall of Fame Reviewer

Patrick was born and raised in Boadua, a small village in Ghana, Africa. His family lived in extreme poverty, relying on farming and selling fish to get by. He attended elementary school in Boadua, where most children were not expected to gain a higher education. However, Patrick discovered a love for reading and knowledge at a young age, and he would stop at nothing to continue his schooling in order to give himself and his family a better life. After being accepted into secondary school, he eventually traveled to the Soviet Union to continue his education, and finally, to America, where he gained advanced degrees in engineering.

Nothing stops Patrick Asare. An incredible story of how he escaped abject poverty in Africa by realizing at a young age the importance of learning how to read. It was his ticket to becoming formally educated in Ukraine and the United States. A truly inspirational and uplifting memoir deserving of Hollywood attention.

Flying Books Review

Patrick Asare’s love of education is evident in his story: his motivation is seeking knowledge and pulling himself out of poverty by doing so. He writes, “My journey began with the accidental discovery of an interesting piece of information on a discarded scrap of newspaper. That information triggered the series of events that ultimately took me on a magical journey around the world.” He worked for a time as a teacher in America, and the behavior of his students led him to explore the socio-cultural differences between Ghana and America, and how circumstances can create drastically different people.

‘The Boy from Boadua’ is a reflection on education, society, culture, and the impact that different forces have on a developing person, and he leads the reader through the harrowing but miraculous journey of his life. This combination makes for a fascinating read.

Lauren Lee

Writer

The story of author Patrick Asare’s journey from abject poverty in Ghana to prosperity in the United States is both inspiring and instructive. In Asare’s new memoir, “The Boy from Boadua,” the author takes us along on this epic ride of a lifetime, with all the highs, lows, suspense and great expectations that one could ever expect from a spectacular memoir. And woven throughout Patrick Asare’s tragedies and triumphs is an essential lesson to be learned about the state of public school education in the 21st century. This is a story not just about one man but also about society today and how the system often fails the young people who truly desire quality education and a successful life.

“The Boy from Boadua” is an extraordinary depiction of how determination, a little bit of luck, strong family ties and keeping your eyes on the prize can lead to a happy and successful life. But it goes much deeper than that. This is the story of the power of love and the ties that bind us and, sadly, the life events that often separate us from each other. Just like the author’s life, this memoir is a helluva ride. Highly recommended.

Right off the bat, Asare throws readers into a compellingly drawn world replete with rampant poverty, hunger and illiteracy. There is nothing stereotypical about the way Asare portrays the various villages and cities through which his life passes. His account is scattered with piquant, often outright funny, incidents which lend the narrative a buoyancy amid all the strife. A large part of the story involves historical details and incidents that Asare lived through, and to which he offers an insider’s perspective. Readers will constantly find themselves amazed at Asare’s unflagging persistence in trying to rise up and live the life he envisions for himself. [….] [Patrick’s] sharp, engaging prose will keep readers hooked. Lovers of international stories of perseverance, history, and politics will enjoy this memoir, which is as illuminating as it is inspiring.

Publishers Weekly

This engrossing narrative is a testament to Asare’s youthful aspirations and his relentless quest to surpass the constraints of his unassuming origins. Readers are treated to a vibrant exploration of Asare’s growth and evolution, skillfully entwined with a rich portrayal of Ghana’s culture, traditions, and adversities. Asare’s adept storytelling paints an immersive picture that transcends geographic boundaries, allowing readers to journey through previously unexplored terrains, and empathize with unfamiliar struggles. His straightforward, lucid prose, bereft of excessive lyricism or metaphors, serves as a pristine canvas where his compelling narrative unfolds uninhibitedly, with the spotlight rightly shining on the messages he aims to convey.

The characters in the story are imbued with remarkable realism, be it the father’s sacrificial love or the protagonist’s innocent frustrations during his childhood. This authenticity fosters a deep connection with the reader, lending a universal appeal to the story. The Boy from Boadua particularly shines in its nuanced exploration of human responses to varied life circumstances. Asare deftly illustrates the multifaceted nature of circumstances, the diverse elements influencing one’s life, all the while inspiring readers with the tenacity and perseverance that have been the guiding lights of his life journey.

This is a journey that is both inspiring and heart-wrenching as Patrick recalls his triumphs and hardships. Each experience he recounts further explains his view on the world and different cultures, which he reflects on in the latter part of the book. The Boy from Boadua is an unbelievable true story for all ages that teaches the importance of education and understanding the social, cultural, and political factors that shape a person. It’s a fascinating read: from working in the harsh jungle and struggling to even afford food, to traveling to a new country without knowledge of the language, and finally, to confronting the American school system, race relations, and much more.
