Very, very interesting, especially in that it gives a glimpse of the Islam version of the religious right. Very clever how they escaped in the end (that's not a spoiler - it's mentioned very early on, maybe even on the jacket flap, that David escapes :o). My one big problem with this book - and it's a doozy - is how ANNOYING it is to read. It's all written in the first person - no problem - but also in the present tense, which I find incredibly off-putting. I nearly put it down several times and I skimmed chunks of it. Still - the story is engaging enough that in the end, I put up with the style.

excellent story told by both David Rohde and his wife, Kristen Mulvihill, about his 7-months in captivity after being kidnapped by a Taliban chief. weaves in historical and current facts about the tribal territories at the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Enlightening and shocking.
