It’s a good story and if he had just stuck to it perhaps it would have made for a good read. Unfortunately he often goes off on tangents that are not really related. It seems he wasn’t sure if this was going to be a book just about the kidnapping or a memoir of his life and personal philosophies. I wish it would have been much shorter and focused on the topic. Can’t really say I would recommend it. Additionally, every once in a while he gets needlessly graphic and it appears that he’s trying to dramatize a situation that really requires no dramatization.
The first half of the book is about being captured in Syria. It was good and true to the title of the book. The second half is a hodgepodge of personal opinions, World War Two history, and commentary on 2016 world events. The second half felt like it was there just to fill pages.
