Review - In Praise of Hatred

Tuesday, March 04, 2014

As a member of BookBrowse I am often able to read and review advance reading copies. I just finished In Praise of Hatred by Khaled Khalifa - St Martin's Press.

My review for your general interest -
The best way for me to be informed is to read fiction based on real lives, real events. This is what I gained from IN PRAISE OF HATRED. I felt no connection to the characters portrayed but the novel clarified the violence in the Middle East, let me see the hatred of the dictatorship’s campaign against the Muslim Brotherhood , witness the changing life of a young secluded Muslim girl as she is tossed into the social and political chaos of the world outside the protection of the family walls. It is a powerful awakening.

    Thank you for your review of my review : - )) I didn't like the book myself and cannot recommend it. It gave me information, not enjoyment. M.

    Sounds like a privileged honor to review any book to me.

    I however am not a reader. If I were I don't think this would be the type of book that I would read. I prefer to be entertained.

    I do remember those that suffer in the hands of others in my prayers and pray for peace in this world. I feel if more people shared kindness to others this would def be a better world.

    Thank you for the review of the book. I may be able to find a copy when it comes out at local library or on Kindle. I feel for those who suffer at the hands of savage mean men who do these things in name of religious freedom. The world has become such a cruel place for the common people. I fear for the future of our people.
