About this deal

What Brian Keenan and his fellow hostages went through is terrifying and Mr Keenan's story telling is superb. Their aim is to read books outside our usual preferred genres, and, where possible, to choose books written in different cultures.

The start of the book gives a brief background to his life, and then a quick outline of his first few months in Lebanon.With musings on politics, philosophy and religion and the human capacity for love - and evil - this book is a very important and moving read.

A stubborn character, a fully paid-up member of the Awkward Squad, he exhibited an incredible strength of character that saw him through nearly 5 years of horror. He simply tells what happened so he can lay it to rest behind him, and from what I can tell, he's gone on to do exactly that. Writing with such focus on self-reflection and reprocessing of events is less interesting to me than straightforward fact.Few people have been where these men have been, but everybody can take something away from their experience and find enrichment or hope especially when it is shared as honestly and eloquently s this. He is clearly a gregarious person; he made friends, ate meals with people, and explored his environment.
