    1. I enjoyed reading the book because most of the short stories were written in a very smooth way that teleported me to Sudan. I liked the creative idea behind "The Tank" short story and how a civilian was using a tank for his transportation. Also "In The City" short story and how a young person from the village tried to cope with life in the city. One more short story I liked is "A boy playing with dolls" because it took me to my childhood games when I used to play with my toys and imaginations. A [...]

    2. Short contextual stories of KhartoumThe books has interesting short stories that give some insights of culture and relationships, as well as past glories of the people of Sudan.

    3. I'd ordered this before the travel ban, but in its wake, I thought it was important to understand and highlight the humanity and commonness of people from these countries. Sometimes difficult reading, but well worth it for a glimpse of a sometimes similar, sometimes difficult way of life.

    4. I really enjoyed 'The Void' and 'The Passage' but was less impressed with some of the stories such as 'The Butcher's Daughter'. Overall, a quite nice collection.

    5. This book was featured in the Nota Benes section of the January 2017 issue of World Literature Today Magazineliteraturetoday/
