I received this book in exchange for a review.
I feel fortunate to have received this book. I found out that this is the debut novel for this author - what a great start. As I was reading I felt that I was actually there following the characters through their actions. The author has quickly crafted a cast of excellent characters that interact well. I particularly enjoyed an inside look at the lives inside Israel and the adjoining Arab states. The plot built in an intriguing manner towards a very fulfilling ending.
This book was non-stop look inside the Israeli-Palenstinian conflict and showed how it may be possible to solve this problem. Overall a great look at the inner workings of the two societies. When I finished the book, I actually had a desire to visit this part of the world. Unfortunately the current strife against the western countries kept me from really considering that.
