    Having promised his dying father, Abdel Latif, that he will transport his body back to his hometown for burial, Bolbol enlists the help of his estranged brother Hussein and sister Fatima to carry out Abdel Latif s wishes But this simple promise is complicated by the fact that they are in Syria in the midst of a civil war, and the trip that they optimistically believe will take a day soon becomes a nightmarish odyssey where they are detained, questioned, bombed and imprisoned all while their fat [...]

    This novel is a gorgeous meditation on death, grief, family, and war It seems like it wouldn t take very long since essentially, the main plot of the book is this sibling trio taking their father s body to a town 2.5 hours away that ll take a bit longer due to the ongoing civil war in Syria However, the reader doesn t just get to see the family dynamics between the siblings in the car we re treated to their pasts and how they ve shaped these people into who they are at the time the novel take Th [...]

  3. Pablo Alejandrosays:

    One of the best novels I have read this year The narrative shifting from present to presenting the background of all characters, its lack of sentimentalism, a very hard thing to achieve given the topic, the description of Syrian situation with an astonishing neutral realistic though not unconcerned tone I only disliked the fact that the female character is not really explained throughout the book and you don t really get to know her, or only as kind of mediator between both brothers.

  4. Basaksays:

    The most haunting and poignant novel I ve read in a long time.

  5. Worteldriesays:

    Van elkaar vervreemde broers en zus rijden het lijk van hun vader door een even verscheurd Syrie naar zijn geboortegrond Gelukkig wordt de overeenkomst tussen land en gezin wordt nergens te expliciet De personages zijn onsympathiek van karakter maar daarom wel zo herkenbaar Men is tenslotte in oorlog De personages vinden zichzelf ook niet sympathiek, dat spreekt dan weer voor ze Een mens mag hopen nooit een burgeroorlog aan den lijve te ondervinden.

  6. LittleSophiesays:

    I really wanted to like this novel , but it was just unbelievably monotonous I m not sure how much that might be due to the translation or my lack of knowledge regarding Syrian culture and literature, but the narrative pace was really punishingly slow The timeline was broken up into such small fragments, constantly jumping back and forth, that I got never really involved in the story.Direct speech is almost completely missing and combined with the similarly paced sentences, it took all imp I rea [...]

    I received a free copy of Death is Hard Work by Khaled Khalifa, through the Good Reads First Reads Giveaway This book is an uncomfortable read because of the realistic representation of the Civil War in Syria and death in general The author s talents makes for a sincere story including a dysfunctional family, both of which make one uncomfortable.This work is informative and sad, as is the situation in Syria I respect the book, although I couldn t wait to finish it because the true story is I rec [...]
