Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I judged by the cover!. On a comic binge, I grabbed this Graphic Novel from the library because I really liked the image on the front cover. I was not expecting too much but ended up pleasantly surprised. The story line is split over several characters in Cairo; An American Student who wants to be a reporter; A wannabee suicide bomber with hesitations; An Israeli soldier hiding in enemy land; A drug smuggler on the run for stealing a Hookah; A Journalist in love with a "dancing" girl; and A Woman desperately wanting to change her destiny. These are the good guys, their paths all cross at several points and are all drawn together by the end. No pun intended there. I would have loved for this story to have gone into greater detail and been much longer.
