Well, not so far, no, but package it right and it can only be a question of time.

My one complaint with the book may be down to the translation – I never felt that Jaafie seemed quite angry, grief-stricken or confused enough, he didn’t drag me through his emotions alongside him. Does the job, fills the time, but I couldn’t quite see why it gave rise to such enthusiasm.

He has a nice home in a nice part of the city, he and his wife Sihem attend dinner parties with their Israeli friends and are happy. Anonymity was the only way for him to survive and avoid censorship during the Algerian Civil War. Want to Read saving…. Khadra does an excellent job of giving everyone their due, making all sides compelling and tragic, right and terribly terribly misguided. Dr Amin Jaafari is an Israeli Arab.

I have to remember it. He shows us th This is a very complicated book to rate. He uses his skills to repair the damage caused by the conflict surrounding him and to keep himself distanced from involvement in events. I still think it is worth reading, but to anyone expecting the emotional character study that I was- It’s there, and can be quite poignant, but be aware that you’ll have to tolerate some other baggage coming along with it.


I really appreciated the easy and carefree life I am living in comparison to those in the book. Attentat you start from the principle that your worst enemy is very person who tries to sow hatred in your heart, you’re halfway to happiness.
