This review is from: The Place at the End of the World (Perfect Paperback)
Wow, this is such an awesome book. This woman is such a great writer. She is the bravest woman. At the start of her career Janine was told to go forth and write about the small people. She did that and more! From a crowded lunatic asylum in Chechnya to bombed-out Tora Tora! in Afghanistan, from Saddam Hussein's derelict palace in Baghdad to the inner-city barrios of Miami, she has covered almost every embattled place in the world and the people caught in its midst. Sometimes I cried as I read and sometimes I hooted with laughter as Janine told how she had talked her way out of a tight spot with marauding troops. Vivid, raw and impassioned - and war through her is terrifyingly real. That's not me talking. That's professional critics. Can't wait for the next installment. Next time please some better maps. Not all of us have travelled as much as Janine!
