I read Kabul24 by Ben Pearson and Henry Arnold as part of Thomas Nelson’s Book Review Bloggers program. This is the story of the SNI aid workers held by the taliban in Afghanistan just before the 9/11 attacks. They were held for 105 days in horrid conditions and subjected to interrogations and intimidation. I remembered hearing their story in the media at the time and was very interested to read about it in more detail.The actual story is very inspiring. The workers faith in God and his providence continued throughout the ordeal even through immense stress but we also see that they are normal people that still experience times of despair. We also get to see how the support of each other throughout their time in captivity helped maintain their faith and sanity. I was interested to read that quite a few returned to work in Afghanistan. Their love and concern for the people of Afganistan definitely showed through in this retelling of the story. What let down the book for me was the writing. At times it read like a school report which prevented me from becoming fully engaged with the people and the situation they found themselves in and it was only the fact that this was a true story that captured my interest. I still rate it worth the read especially if you are interested in true stories of faith and missionaries. ( )

I kept going back and forth with this book. While I liked it, there were several things that threw me.

This book focuses on the activities and imprisonment of some Shelter Now International (SNI) employees by the Taliban army. The story in and of itself was sad and gave you a bird’s eye view of what it really means to be held in a prison with no real laws for 100 days. And while the experiences are something that very few people would have been able to endure, it felt like it was told as a shock value rather than a learning one.

The book was written to explain how the employees faith in Christianity made it possible for them to remain strong, but we rarely saw that. Instead we were slapped in the face over and over with the pain and indignities they had to endure. And while this must be written about, this goal of the book and the final result didn’t see eye to eye.

While I enjoyed reading the book, it didn’t scream out at me. Shock value and constant downers only go so far. ( )
