it was amazing

i will admit to seeing the movie of this first...but as far as i can tell the book was put together from movie material. in any case, both works are extremely potent. Ari Folman uses the comic format to deliver a digestible, intensely emotional account of his connection to the sabra and shatila massacre in 1982. the story of over a thousand Palestinian and Lebanese Muslims slaughtered by Christian Phalangists comes in steps as Folman gives us his own and fellow Isreali soldiers' recaptured memories of the horrific time. this is an amazing chronicle of the shock of war conveyed through the all too human trait, memory.
