    Story
    "Simplistic."
    What disappointed you about The Devil We Don't Know?

    There is no constructed reasoning in this book. From the verry begining it is made of an accumulation of unverrified "facts" and dogmas. The author is agressive and resentfull and expresses her own opinion without constructing her case. I'm verry disapointed by this book, it is a simplistic and narrow minded view of the arab world.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Gigi Falkland?

    Yes, naration is not the issue here.
