Carolyn SeeSome people write about death, dying and tragedy as if they were death, dying and tragedy. Others—God bless them—just don't carry the genes for drama or melodrama; they look at the world with all its flaws and suffering, and something about the situation strikes them funny…This is a plot-heavy book…But The Night Counter is also lighthearted, full of silly plays on words and comedic errors. In this easy-seeming way, the author aims, without being in any way preachy about it, to give us a short history of the Middle East and the Muslim faith in America—to say: Don't be so quick to misunderstand us; we are, in so many of the ways detailed here, the same as you. She succeeds, very gracefully.
