4.0 out of 5 stars A tale of people that transcends politics, 27 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Discordia: Six Nights in Crisis Athens (Kindle Edition)
Discordia lived with me for days after reading it. Not the specific details, the intricacies of Greek politics or the way its press has been neutered in a way which makes Britain seem a bastion of free speech, but the power of people.

Penny's journalistic style adds colour and poetry to the bleakest and most aggressive of landscapes, detailing the symptoms of poverty and subjugation that don't make the headlines - the human stories of what feels like a war on the 99%.

Despite this, I was left with an overwhelming sense of hope. There there were people like Laurie, Molly and Yiannis who voiced the struggle so beautifully and with such unrelenting fervour that together, with art, liberty and (increasingly) a genuine fear for their future, they can rid society of its ills. That the heart, vitality and intelligence of the left could outweigh the brutish dominion of the right.
