This was a great book that gave some not to often seen insight into the affect a suicide bomber has on their family.

This book was an eye-openener in that it shows the Israeli-Palistinian conflict through the eys of a Non-Islamist Arab who's wife became a suicide bomber. If I have ever had any thoughts about visiting Israel, this book tells me to stay in the U.S. Different take on the conflict. Very interesting.

This is a fascinating book. I was breathless from the opening scene of the attack to the very last page. I could not put it down. Eye opening, it is a beautifully written account of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Gripping, horrifying and haunting, this is the second of Mr. Moulessehoul's books that I have read, but will definitely not be the last. Very highly recommend.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It is about current day terrorism and what life is like in a terrist country. I have now gotten the author's other book called "The Swallows of Kabul".

THis was a beautifully written but heartrending story which took place in Tel Aviv. It's about a surgeon whose wife's body is found after a deadly bombing in a nearby restaurant. What comes to light after much painful investigating on the surgeon's part is unimaginable. Some of the author's sentences are lyrical.

This book was fantastic. Very engrossing from first page to the last. But be prepared, it is heart breaking.
