This sort of intertwined stream-of-consciousness story is hard to pull off well, and Yazbek falters a bit at the start. But once you get your bearing it flows better. You certainly get a glimpse into different parts of Syrian society*, but the story is clearly not one that average Syrians, rich or poor, would actually live through.
Well written, albeit with some weaknesses in the broader plot, this slim book is worth reading if you want a glimpse into Syrian society.
* This is a before the civil war story, so don't expect it to represent Syria today.
