A Gripping Read

Son of Hamas by Mosab Hassan Yousef

From start to the end this book reads like a Robert Ludlum best seller. The author takes us right into the inner world of Hamas, as only the son of one the movement leaders can. A disturbing view of the violence and the fear people live in it has made me appreciate more where I live.

The book follows the author’s life and the reasons that lead him to become a spy against his own people. The pain, fear, doubt, heartbreak and hope is palpable to the reader.

If I did not any better I would have never believed this book was a true story. I was left at the end of it with up most respect for the author and his courage to share what must be a painful story for him.
