I just loved it. It really takes your breath away and I enjoyed the descriptions of the feelings and contradictions in the novel. To build not to build, why we do something we do, questioning some young believes all are presented in the novel the way here in Palestine we feel and think. I would strongly recommend it.

I really liked the way it was told, from the perspective of different characters and I thought all the characters were developed really well. To be honest, my only criticism was that it was too short!!! I didn't want to leave the characters behind and felt really sad when the book ...more

Wall of Dust will keep you engaged from page one. This is a "must read" for anyone remotely interested in the Palestinian-Israeli dilemma. Tim Niedermann excels at portraying the human cost to conflict.
