The Raqqa Diaries: Escape from Islamic State – Samer

cover.jpgI picked this up completely at random in Waterstones. I have absolutely no idea what attracted me to it. But I’m glad something did.

This is a fantastic little book. I read this in a very short single sitting, but it will stay with me a great deal longer. Poignant, painful, sorrowful and heartbreaking though it all is, this is a show of defiance and an important work.
