"Hage's energetic prose matches the brutality depicted in the novel without overstating the narrative's tragic arc - an impressive first outing for Hage." (Publishers Weekly)

I was really looking forward to this book, the reviews for the print edition were good and I am interested in the location and political setting. But I gave up after ten minutes - the narration just doesn't work. Could be a great narrator for a traditional British novel but he doesn't pull of Beirut. Why not get someone who sounds a bit more 'street'? Or better still, someone of Arab descent?
I will listen a lot more carefully to samples in future.
I had to put a rating for the storyline to be able to write this review but never listened to it again. Might buy the book instead.
