    Under the Persimmon Tree by Suzanne Fisher Staples is a significant book to read to help promote a global society Due to the war in the Middle East and much of the media coverage done on it there has been a great misconception created about Islam and the majority of Muslims News and media has a tendency to focus only on the very worst Media can even exaggerate news in order to suit a specific agenda Due to this unfortunately many Muslims and middle easterners have been misrepresented U

    I got to page 100 and stopped I just can't do it This godawful piece of garbage beat me I'm actually wondering how I got this far There are so many things wrong with this book that I'm not even sure I can list them allA large amount of the sentences have an absence of commas making them either extremly choppy and short or so long that my internal voice even has to take a breath Either way it is exceptionally annoying A great example of this would be in page 7 where it bares the sentence of A

    This was an excellent book One of those books that I think everyone should read A book that should be on every school's reading list The book takes place roughly 2001 2002 in Afghanistan and Pakistan following two people one a shepherd girl from a fictional North Afghanistan village and the other the American wife of an Afghan doctor who is living near a refugee camp for Afghans in Pakistan while her husband works at a clinic in war torn Northern Afghanistan A series of probable events brings these two people

    Overall I really enjoyed the book At first I wasn’t too big of a fan but then once the family problems came into play I wanted to keep reading Every chapter switched between Najmah and Nusrat and that was a little confusing at the start because I didn’t know what was happening The book was very upbeat and it has a good story behind it It shows how important family really is to people and that parents would do anything for their children This may not be a true story but this stuff really happens People lose their home

    When I was reading this book A long walk to Water popped up in my mind Their both so alike in so many ways two points of views and they both intercept child soldiers losing your family but finding them in the end and etc Under the Persimmon Tree really makes you look at things differently just like A Long Walk To Water Also I like how this book some insight on how people lives are in India or Pakistan This book didn't disappoint me whatsoever and I hope that you get a chance to read this amazing book

    I hated this book If i could give it less than one star I wouldIt's plot line was the most confusing thing ever There were two stories happening at the same time and often switched between the two without warning I wouldn't really mind this if at least one of the stories was a good one but neither of them were There were both boring and didn't keep my attention at all If you are into confusing plot lines and boring stories then this book is for you otherwise find something else other than this waste of paper
