Set in present-day Iraq, this story is told through the eyes of a young Bedouin man who comes from a traditional village. Violent encounters with the American forces ensue. Through humiliation, loss and despair comes a transformation of his character. This novel helps us to understand how the suffering and sense of hopelessness experienced by Iraqis today could turn people towards radicalism.

This book gave an insight on what would cause someone who seemingly is totally appalled by any violence to be so consumed with hate that their only solace at night is they need to defend their honor by killing. I am not at all for anyone killing innocent people but this book gave a perspective of someone on the other end of the spectrum
