    Imagine a world where a boy's dreams dictate the behavior of warriors in battle; where a young couple's only release from forbidden love is death; where religious extremism, blind hatred, and endemic corruption combine to form a lethal ideology. This is the world of Terrorists in Love. A gifted listener and storyteller, Ken Ballen takes us where no one has dared to go - deep into the secret heart of Islamic fundamentalism.

    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator's voice was annoying; a different person was needed.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The book disappointed me. I felt the author wanted listeners to sympathize and pity these people. I understand the importance of religion and family in the Arab culture but do not accept this as an excuse for their actions.
