I really enjoyed the writing in this novel. I liked the flashbacks because I felt that they kept the action going. There was a mystery aspect to the flashbacks as we, the reader, try to figure out what happened to Samir's brother. The juxtaposition of Adnan and Yonotan was very interesting to me.
I worry about the cultural implications of an Israeli writer writing from a Palestinian perspective. I found out last night in class that this novel was well received in Israel. I wonder how it was received by Palestinians.
