I found this book to be very young. young in the sense that the illustrations have a doodling quality, the level of emotions real but still seem to come from an author who is wet behind the ears in life. this is all self admitted even in the title which is more of a sarcastic glimpse of whats to come. As by the end of the book, a lot about the region is explained but because of the deep history and entrenched beliefs regarding the subject, the author comes away realizing that despite her overwrought attempts to understand the conflict and her history, she finds her firm preconceptions shadowed in doubt and ambivalence.
