I was surprised to find that I enjoyed the second and third books in this series even more than the first.

It opened up my understanding for what is going on in Israel, and I appreciated the viewpoint from people of different cultures.
I love these books, but I just don't read them as quickly as I usually read books. I'd say it's because it's part history and it's a history I've never known much about, so I can't just skim - I'm actually reading and re-reading. Everything is new to me and I love learning about it.
