Written in an almost childlike journalistic style, this book gives a glimpse into WWI that Hemingway saw first hand. If you research the themes of the book, it becomes even more meaningful. I'm glad I read it.
An incredible view of British-dominated Egypt and the Egyptian factions themselves. Interweaves the love and cross-cultural experience. A great read! Our book group went on forever about it, discovering new things at every turn of the conversation.
Spellbinding! Although it reads like a novel, when you think about the life of a man who never revealed his past until recently, you have to wonder what went through his mind as he was raising his own family.
Research and reporting are excellent retelling of a horrible time.
