I'm not going to completely trash this book as its not 100% bad; however, read the review from the Washington Post and verbatim- thats exactly how this book is. The language takes away from the book way too much. As the Washington Post said it: "its been done before and better."
This book will teach you so much about a culture that has been in midst for a long time. I truly felt connected to the characters and though not very knowledgeable, admittedly, of middle east conflicts, thought they did a great job at walking you through the historical part of it without making it about that.
