    1. Author Walter Mosley has said in his bookDevil in a Blue Dress, "The law is made by the rich people so that the poor people can't get ahead"Similarly, a modern day author, George Hamilton has vividly captured this saying in his book Carnival of Hope, with Brazil as the back-drop. He has managed to open our eyes to the dreadful ugly conditions faced by the people of the northern-east part of Brazil. These people are termed as Nordestinos. The authorities do not allow the people to read and excel, [...]

    3. Meet a boy, a girl. Be immersed in their love story, the fleeting moments of ecstasy beautifully handled by the author. Enter the world of the Nordestinos of northeastern Brazil.

Mix in action and a story with twists and turns that keep the reader wondering what happens next, and you’ve got Carnival of HopeRNIVAL OF HOPE by George Hamilton is the love story of Tomas and Thereza, their strug [...]


    4. This is the story of Tomas and Thereza who grew up and live in the slums of the North East of Brazil and the fight they have to get out of town via the Carnival.This story is heartbreaking in its portrayal of just how poor these people are. I could picture the streets and tips that George describes. Tomas doesn't eat for 3 days and that is just unbelievable for me in my comfy house. I've no doubt this story could well be a true story many places in Brazil.Tomas in his heart is a good person, but [...]


    5. Trafficing in more ways than one.5starsThis story, based on true conditions, could be depressing for any reader who cannot face a new type of ugly facts that desperately poor people face. It takes place to start with in northern Brazil where there is a multitude of people who live under the meanest of conditions because there is no work and if it wasn’t for human nature’s instinct to survive, most would give in and just pass on. Northerners in Brazil were called Nordestinos and Tomas, a teen [...]


    6. **I received a free copy of this through giveaways**As much as it pains me to not if finish a book, when reading feels like a chore - it's not right. The setting is depressing, obviously, and I didn't like the characters. This mysterious carnival takes half the book to actually occur and everything is just a bit weird. This needed more things actually happening earlier on so that we're not stranded in an oasis of Tom walking places and other reasonably meaningless things. I get that it's about [...]


    7. The story is set against the backdrop of the poverty stricken slums of north eastern Brazil and revolves around the life of the protagonist Tomas and his lady love Thereza's families.The first half of the novel depicts in heart wrenching, graphic detail the extent of poverty and deprivation in the Brazilian 'favela' controlled by a ruthless mayor and his henchmen.For Thereza, the only hope of escape from the wretched life is the annual competition at a carnival that promises a job and somewhat b [...]


    8. This was the second book by the author I read. First one - Road to rebellion - I won, and I liked it so much that decided to read something more from this author. I wasn't disappointed. I think I will go for the third book after some time.I love that without unnecessary long descriptions of nature and landscape, the author gives a feeling of presence. He pictures the scene very naturally and vividly giving the sense of reality. I believe him and this is one of the very important things about boo [...]


    9. Carnival of Hopewas an amazing read, George Hamiltonhas given us a well told tale, capturing the squalor and poverty of a Brazilian shantytown. I love a well researched book and the author seems to have done his homework. The characters are well developed and complex. It was a heartbreaking story, but also a story showing the toughness of people in really awful conditions. The ending is perfect. Well done Mr. Hamilton.


    10. Found the story a little hard to follow but it's very well written. Needed more concentration than my holiday mind could give. Nonetheless, I finished it and found that it all became clear in the last few pages.
