A writer of great eloquence, Barakat takes the modern western reader away from their own world and into that of a Palestinian child’s. From the joy of sesame candy to the fear of bombs exploding overhead, Tasting the Sky was not a book which I read with dry eyes. Barakat was able to find a wonderful balance of childhood antics and a real world look at the conflict which is too often seen as hopeless.
This is a fantastic and captivating book! I highly recommend it to anyone who has come across this page.
A revelation of childhood memories of living with war that should lead the reader compassion.
