An interesting book. Some very haunting anecdotes--I'm thinking in particular about Ahmed and Birak near the end, but there are other stories too that I won't forget. It does get a little repetitive, though. I feel like Stack had something between a long magazine article and a short book and chose to stretch her material into a short book. I can't fault her for that, really, especially since she was nominated for a National Book Award! But the stretching shows. ( )

I think the author had some great points but it seemed like she could have ended it much sooner. ( )

This book packs a bit of an emotional wallop. This is not a finely crafted story, but a series of experiences in the Middle East post 9/11 as a young journalist is swept along and sent to report on the "War on Terror". It's powerful, emotional and is bound to linger. ( )

"You can survive and not survive, both at the same time."

War on Terror! Manifest or farce? Megan Stack, a foreign correspondent for the LA Times, attempts to answer that question. Shortly after 9/11, Stack found herself thrust into the Middle East, spending the next six years, in various hot zones: Afghanistan, occupied Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, Libya, Saudi Arabia and a few others.
Stack’s first hand account of many atrocities is eye-opening and gut-wrenching. She befriends a variety of people in each of these dangerous locales, putting a human face on these tragedies. She is able to witness the myriad of lies and deceptions and experience the ugly hatreds, that fuel and drive these regions. Her prose is both tough and beautiful. She is a daring, unflinching journalist, looking directly into the horrible face of war.

"Only after covering it for years did I understand that the war on terror never really existed. It was not a real thing. Not that the war on terror was flawed, not that it was cynical or self-defeating, or likely to breed more resentment and violence. But that it was hollow, it was essentially nothing but a unifying myth for a complicated scramble of mixed impulses and social theories and night terrors and cruelty and business interests.” ( )
