I was not at all sure that I would like this book when I started it. But I stayed with it and I encourage you to do the same. It is a well-told story with characters who offer us insight into the complexities of modern Iraqi and Middle Eastern life and conflict and how we from the West do our best to help. I am a better man for having read this book.

I am a huge fan of Miller's first fantastic book, Norwegian by Night. I was thrilled when I saw he had published a second book. Well, the new book isn't what I had hoped for or expected. I've read the other reviews and have tried to stick with this as suggested. It has been several hours of listening and I still don't feel any connection to the characters or the story being told. The book is focused on Desert Storm through the Gulf War and has a cynical and even distant tone. Do read the other reviews--many people seem to love this book. Just not for me.
