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.
