I hope you are enjoying the holiday season! I have been seeing some great reviews from readers for my newest release, The Heart of Aleppo: A Story of the Syrian Civil War, and wanted to share some of them with you. All of these reviews are from the Goodreads Review Site, and you can read more of them HERE. You can also read more reviews of the book on AMAZON!
“Moving tale of how war effects children! I have seen the war reported on the news, but this book really brings it home how it has affected families on a day to day basis. There is no mention of the politics of the war, just the story of group of children. Highly recommend read!” -Sarah Rayner
“A beautiful novel that will stay with me for a long time. Habib managed to write Zaid as a character many people will be able to relate to. A teenage boy with hopes and dreams of the future, who’s innocence is quickly destroyed when the first bombs start to fall. The conflicting emotions Zaid experiences about his brother, his family, the military and life in general are put into words beautifully. Thanks to Habib’s writing I was able to really picture Aleppo and the destruction that took place. I would definitely recommend this novel to other people to gain more insight of what is going on in Syria and to see things from a different perspective. Rather than all the news coverage we’ve all seen before, this novel allows us to understand the humanitarian aspect.” -Keeley Jansen
“Wow! What a read. It really touched my soul as I read about how Zaid and his friends had to endure what no child should ever have to go through. I think everybody living in first-world countries should read this book to get a better understanding of what people in war-torn nations are experiencing.” -Laura Jackman
