Another orientalist view of the Middle East by a reporter who practiced parachute journalism.  If you can can make it through all the adjectives and purple prose haze, you'll find a memoir of a gal out of her depth but keen on stringing together observations to promote herself and her world view.  It must have been a poor year in non-fiction for this to be a book award finalist.  It reads like she strung together her clippings with some standard tropes on war and terror.  Save your money.  It belongs with the print articles that inspired it, at the bottom of a bird cage.

I LOVE this book. Stacks did an incredible job of painting an incredibly vivid account of her experiences as a journalist overseas. At some points I had to put the book down as I myself became overwhelmed by tears or anger or fury. I've recommended this book to anyone that has a remote interest in what is happening outside of the USA. You don't have to be an extreme political activist to find this book engaging.

Although the language can get a little florid at times, stay with it. Stack is widely traveled and experienced, and provides solid reporting and insights into the reality and the costs of our endless wars. A must-read, in my opinion.

This book brought the conflicts in the middle east to a personal level. The author portrayed the intensity and humanity in a way you could never get from tv. A very good book that will make you think twice about how you feel about the middle east.

Excellent book, written by credible, award-winning American journalist Megan Stack. For 7 years Stack lived and traveled, by whatever primitive means possible, to the most dangerous and hopeless civilian areas in the middle east. With no regard for her own safety (or mental health), she followed her compulsion to personally observe, experience and report on the lives and deaths of civilians trapped (with no hope of rescue or relief) in the eternal wars of their countries. The result is a provocative and enlightening account. If you only read one book about the wars we've stepped into in the middle east, this is the one.
