"Excellent and informative. A well-written, fascinating look at day-to-day life in a nation on the brink of collapse"
- Kirkus Reviews

"B.A.K. Sim's eloquent descriptive writing draws you into a thrilling yet unnerving and astonishing journey in Zimbabwe during the financial collapse, rampant hyper-inflation and dependence on the black market and a .38 caliber for survival, ultimately ending with a harrowing escape."
- Phyllis Campanello, C.H.A., San Francisco, CA

"Beautifully written - an important contribution to history and politics. A powerful saga, told with humour and compassion, capturing common life during troubled times, bringing out the best and the worst in people."
- Margaret Spark, University Administrator/Editor, Victoria, BC

"A wonderful book creating a vivid picture of the downfall of a beautiful country, and how this has resulted in a catastrophic lack of food, law and order. Well worth reading."
- A. Crawshaw, MA, Cand.phil., Copenhagen University, Denmark

Bodie and Clyde return to Zimbabwe in 2007, but the good times have departed. The country has the highest inflation in the world; people resort to suitcases and wheelbarrows, just to carry the money. Isolated from the rest of the world, they experience shortages of food, water and electricity, with endless line-ups for gas if any is available. The banking system is collapsing and only by trading on the black market are people able to feed themselves. To survive, Clyde's factory converts to producing ox-drawn carts. Governing party backed violence is worsening as a general election is called. Against all odds, many of the people come together across racial, religious and cultural lines. This is a story about how people react in times of extreme adversity. It is about survival, love, imagination and willpower. DOUBLE RAINBOW AT FULL MOON is also a wake-up call to the Western world about the consequences of economic mismanagement - a real human and economic thriller!

5.0 su 5 stelle Ex-pat Must read 25 maggio 2013
Di Gary Wade - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
If you were ever a citizen of Rhodesia and left before the fall which is now Zimbabwe this is a must read. Anybody who has heard of the conditions in Zimbabwe, and who hasn't, this will give you a better look at how it was by someone who lived through it. These people supported the ruling government and tried to make a difference only to be betrayed.

After living in Zimbabwe from 1994 to 1997 I can understand how this book has brought forth the truth of the downfall of Zimbabwe. I currently see the same trend happening in Denmark although on a much slower pace. The experience from this book tells the world that the same could happen in the West.It is a real life educational read with a strong human element.

5.0 su 5 stelle Double Rainbow at Full Moon what a GREAT read 16 giugno 2013

This book is a MUST read not only for Zimbabweans but for the world to see what happened to a marvelous country.
It is a very good, accurate account of what actually happened during those hyperinflation days. Hard to believe unless you were there on a day to day basis.
Once started I could not put it down, it brought back so many memories, well written. Glad that those tough times have been recorded and committed to print. Thanks Dila.
