Would you try another book from Izzeldin Abuelaish and/or Patrick Lawlor?
I would not listen to another book by Patrick Lawlor. He had such an edge in his voice that I reacted in a negative way to his presentation when I know I would not have the same reaction had I been reading the same words.
What was one of the most memorable moments of I Shall Not Hate?
The man himself, Izzeldin Abuelaish, is so admirable, and his commitment to peace comes through so clearly, that he gives hope that we can get there eventually. He is a remarkable leader.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
He made the author sound angry all the time, when the author's message was not a message of anger -- but more a message of hope and possibility.
Was I Shall Not Hate worth the listening time?
No -- I love audiobooks, but I wish I had read this book instead.

It's hard to believe someone who has been through so much, could remain so loving and peaceful. Exposes the lie that is so often perpetuated about certain religions being only about love or hate. Goes to show that "faith/belief in God" can be radicalized to the point of violence and hatred OR can be what they profess to be...about love and tolerance. The proof is in a person's actions, and Dr. Abuelaish does a great service to Islam, Judaism, and the Palestinians and Jews involved in a bitter struggle for freedom.
