    Chasing Shadows PDF ì Paperback chasing ebok, shadows kindle, Chasing Shadows eBookSet in the turmoil of the Middle East this was supposedly giving me an insight into the life of a family over two generations I found that it swapped between the present and the past too freuently with similar names in both generations which I found made for a strained rather than relaxing read

    Chasing Shadows PDF ì Paperback chasing ebok, shadows kindle, Chasing Shadows eBookThis is a book that I couldn't put down Leila Chung spins a remarkable tale of a family who live through the early days of civil war in Lebanon as well as the breakdown of their own family unit I found Chung's use of focalisation and time shift to be extremely sophisticated and the text's cliffhangers definitely kept me turning the pageI would read this book again and again

    Chasing Shadows PDF ì Paperback chasing ebok, shadows kindle, Chasing Shadows eBookI must admit this story had me hooked and reading right until the end But at times it felt a bit rushed and as if the author tried to cram too many stories into the narrative Subseuently there were character stories that I thought needed depth to do them justice The writing style was also very simplistic and lacked the elouence of accomplished authors However I did enjoy the read I just don't think I would read it twice

    Chasing Shadows PDF ì Paperback chasing ebok, shadows kindle, Chasing Shadows eBookA fascinating read I found the characters very frustrating and just like ordinary people I guess but with the symmetry of lives that comes through in fiction I liked the inclusion of Palestinian Israeli Polish and characters and the book highlighted for me the way that the Palestinian situation pushed many Palestinians towards Islamic identify in ways that may not have been present before

    Chasing Shadows PDF ì Paperback chasing ebok, shadows kindle, Chasing Shadows eBookuite tragic but with some warm humorous family moments I think in the hands of a experienced writer this novel could have been really powerful but as it was there were some pretty clunky plot points Tehran and the mountains used to get Ajamia back to Lebanon and into middle age respectively Overall I liked it
