I was very impressed with the authors ability to write whole heartedly from all perspectives. He took a volatile issue and gave each side of it a human face. They cease to be political and become someones life story. It's a love story, an adventure, a legal thriller, mystery, and a journey through Israel and Palestine. I would recommend the Unabridged version of this book - it's long, but a great listen! Through fiction, you learn about what is going on in Israel and Palestine from ALL sides - and you'll find there are many. It makes no judgments, and gives you the information to decide for yourself.
We hear from a Holocaust survivor, a Muslim extremist, and most importantly the two people (a Muslim woman and Jewish man) searching for a moderate answer to this complex situation - personally and politically.
I wasn't sure I would enjoy this - I thought it would be a repeat of his speeches and what he's said on the news the past few years. I was wrong. I was engrossed and listened every chance I got until I had listened to it twice, and I rarely read or listen to something twice within a few years! This is one of those books made for an audio format - hearing his words, in his own voice, really helped me connect and become more engaged.
It gives me hope that our next President (assuming it's him) will understand how normal people live. After listening to this book, I began volunteering for his campaign - and I'm an EX-Republican! The more I learn about this man (and I've done my research), the more determined I am that he has to be our next POTUS.
