My Promised Land: the triumph and tragedy of Israe&hellip by Ari Shavit
7 of 7 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Where from there?, 22 Feb 2014
A very genuine and thorough look at Israel situation. It has no blind spot whatsoever. Ari Shavit sees the situation from everyone's point of view and does not possess rose tinted glasses. What Ari Shavit does not offer is a solution. In a sense, it flows from his ability to see everyone's point of view and refusal to take side. If every one is right or at least has a strong claim to righteousness then no-one's right. And where is the compromise? I have rarely read a book about Israel that was so clear headed. But where do we go from there?
And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
A very interesting book. Every character has got weight. I love the unusual structure of this novel: instead of being either concentrical or linear, this book grows new shoots in unexpected areas. such minor character suddenly develops a whole life of his (her) own when you thought they were only there to open the door, or bring the tea... it definitely keeps you on your toes.
