In the Country of Men


Yesterday i received my copy of "In the country of men" by the Libyan writer Hisham Matar which i bought online through Amazon.co.uk , i have read a lot of good reviews about the book and the writer who lives in London, i hope that they were right. I cant wait to start reading it.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Palestine and Lebanon no matter what creed or religeon they are

The Book seems to be exciting , i will ask my frind to buy it from me as unfortuntly my sister Dania's Mother came to Tripoli last Friday so i will ask one of my friends and i will tell you what do i think about it .
iam prying too for Lebanon , it's really sad the situation there , but Lebanese are Strong and they will get over it . Lebanese people appreciete Life so Lebanon will survive i guess . i love thier People and i pray for them all the times .....

Thanks Aladdin, i started reading the book, it seems good so far, it is sold in all good book shops in the UK.
Lebanon and Palestine will survive Inshallah.

I am waiting for the book to hit my mailbox, soon inshallah, and look forward reading it.

And yes, Lebanon and Palestine will survive, but Israel will not. It is a question of time, only, and I´ll give it max 35 years but will hope for less.

Thank you Safia and im truely glad your kids are safe, lets hope my family in Beirut are safe too Inshallah. I have started reading the book and so far its good as its set in Tripoli in the early 70s.

This book looks very interesting, thanks for the recommendation.

I am praying for peace in Lebanon as well, it's a very depressing time indeed.
