As soon as I heard about Richard Engel's new book, And Then All Hell Broke Loose, I felt the need
My husband hasn't read the book yet, and I think that he will enjoy and follow it much more than I did. I have little knowledge of the Middle East and the book is quite full of the history of the countries there, which is fascinating, but I was a bit lost. As usual, I wanted more of the personal side of everything, and there wasn't as much of that I was hoping. Although, I did enjoy what was there about his personal experiences. this is a book that I will go back to as things progress in the Middle East just for some perspective.
I think that anyone with interest in what is, and has been, going on in the Middle East would find this book really interesting. Good writing, which I would expect from Richard Engel!
