5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful must read for anyone interested in Gaza., 23 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Month by the Sea: Encounters in Gaza (Kindle Edition)
As a woman due to visit Gaza soon I was interested in reading about others (preferably female) experience.
What a wonderful writer Dervla Murphy is and how easy this book was to read.
From her previous experiences in the West Bank and Israel, Dervla was able to draw together a complicated situation & people living their precarious lives under occupation with more than a little cynicism towards all sides in what is an honest and open account of life in the Gaza strip.
She dots her experiences with facts & figures to help one understand the whys & hows of today's reality.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone wishing to learn a little more of life in Gaza as it is, rather than how various 'authorities' would have us see it.
