  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lindsay | 2/19/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Veronica Leff | 1/21/2014

    " Loved it! Couldn't put it down! Loved the thrill of the human story as well as learning about the Taliban, War on Terror and the situation in Afganistan/Pakistan!! Makes interesting observations about the practice of religion that are worth discussing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Joann | 1/16/2014

    " I was completely sucked into this book & needed to know how it would turn out. It is written by both the kidnapped journalist & his wife. I found his writing to be much more developed and detail filled, although his wife's was more relate-able. I learned a lot about the crisis in Afghanistan, but was more taken by the actual mental courage of the authors. "
