Format: Paperback
This book perfectly captures the intensity and mystic nature associated with Sinai - and especially the underlying current of these times. The plot starts slow - building up the characters - and then culminates in a powerful ending. The plot is built around three seemingly mis-matched yet completely endearing protagonists that are thrown into a whole mishegas of happenings together - that could only take place in the Middle East. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a good thriller - but especially those who are interested in Middle Eastern affairs. I couldn't put it down!

SINAI is a Hollywood blockbuster in the making! An excellent thriller, which would transfer incredibly well into the big screen. Except, then people would say how the book was even better than the film, due to the author's exceptional use of snippet-like descriptions of fleeting situations. A highly recommended read - get it and have a BLAST!

I stumbled upon this book by accident more or less. I'm looking for stuff to read about the Middle East and all the stuff that's going on over there. The book is fictional but seems uncannily to predict current events. The story itself is an excellent thriller. The short chapters keep things going, page after page..

I happened to have been to Egypt three times in the last decade, once in 2006, once just after the revolution, and once few weeks ago from my sofa. I just read Sinai and felt transported to Egypt, in a sort of third dimension: half of it was known (smells, images, ambiance, heat, etc) and the other half looked like something I knew but with a twist - like if I had taken some special mushrooms...

At the moment when we are entering in a new year, supposed to be the last one, I would say that Sinai is not a book, it's an experience. At some point it makes you feel good, some other times makes you feel like pages don't turn fast enough and that you're heart might not make it to the end. But overall, I would say it's an experience everybody should live!

Every book has its time and place. Sinai is THE book for this time and place, and every time and place at once. The book sketches a troubled Egypt after Mubarak, but more broadly it explores a troubled world in troubled times. Of which, one hastens to add, there have been many. And in that troubled time very different people meet. Sinai intuits a contemporary pulse but includes enough cultural and historical references to ensure a timeless appeal. An avalanche of a book, no less.
