Vered (vered_ehsani) Five stars are not enough for this masterfully written story by Mingo Kane. A young marine comes home after his third tour of duty in Iraq, and struggles to adapt to a society he doesn’t fit into anymore. As he buses across the country, Tom tries to grapple with interacting with his fellow passengers while experiencing a series of flashbacks to his time in Iraq. The plot is tight, the imagery searing, the writing rich and poetic, and the story deeply memorable. Scars of the Prophet will linger with you long after you turn the last page. I can’t recommend it enough, and I know I’ll be reading this book again.
My rating: there aren't enough stars! Seriously, this is one of the BEST books I've ever read.

Jalyn (jalynnie) | 9 comments I just bought this on my kindle based on your review. Thank you! I probably won't be able to read it for a few weeks, but I'll let you know what I think when I've read it :)

Vered (vered_ehsani) Cool! It's one of the few books that I recommend to pretty much everyone (except kids)!
