I'm not sure what made me pick up The Attack, but I'm so glad I listened to it. The story - of a man who finds out the hard way that his wife was leading a double life - is moving and thought-provoking. Rudnicki has always been an Audible favorite, and here he gives the character of Dr. Amin Jaafari the weight he deserves, without being overbearing. This performance is complex, emotional, and highly recommended.

I knew this book would not be a walk in the park. It deals with very serious and emotional issues, that will probably not go away in our lifetime. It really addresses the top layer of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. The top layer being the end result of all the history of the region and political desicions made through out time. The book does not get into how and why the region ended up in the termoil it is experiencing, but what the end result is and how it affects real people trying to live real lives. It shows the snowball effects of how an action causes a reaction and the never ending cycle. It was nice to read a book on this topic that was fiction. Most books that deal with this topic are non-fiction and biased. Khadra managed to touch on the human tragedy on both sides. I agree with all the previous reviewers. Very thought provoking. I felt helpless and tired when it was all over.
