3.0 out of 5 stars A Unique Trip through Palestinian Eyes, March 13 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Palestine Collection (Paperback)
What makes this work valuable is the focus on the views of the Palestinian without even attempting to explain the history and events that lead to their plight. Sacco just suspends the why's.
What we see is a dark, depressed and oppressed people who unfortunately harbour a growing hatred and resentment towards the Israelis. It does not leave you hopeful for a peaceful solution anytime soon.
It is biased, but does not pretend to be anything else. It is also enlightening. The comic style makes it an easy way to get a picture of the Palestinian Viewpoint; it turns a narrative into a picture.
For those of us in the west looking for another viewpoint it is worthwhile.
