Book Review - Israel by Sarah Glidden

Ok the full name of the book is 'How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less' and its Memoir/Travelogue by Sarah Glidden. 

This book is in Graphic Novel format where in Sarah shares her experience from her Birthright Trip to Israel. This is something which is offered by Israel to Jews living in other countries to introduce them to Israel.

Through out the Journey Sarah battles with the idea that this entire trip is nothing but a ploy by Israel to brainwash her with Israel's ideology. Throughout Sarah fights with her ideas and her expectations for the trip.

She also poses few tough questions about Israel's policy with Palestine and other neighbouring countries. 

In all the book is quite enjoyable as reading a travelogue in Graphic Novel format was a different experience. I know there are other memoirs too in Comic or Graphic Novel format and I am keen to check them soon too. I am no expert on Israel situation but this book does introduce you to few questions from an American born person. You should check the book if you want to read a non-fiction/Travelogue/Memoir in a different format. You should be able to enjoy it too.

My Rating - 4/5
