Críticas:

Praise for THE SIRENS OF BAGHDAD
"[A]n astonishing novel with overtones of Camus (think of "The Fall" as well as "The "Stranger).... It's simply admirable...a magisterial work of fiction."
--"Lire"
"Like all the great storytellers of history, [Khadra] espouses the contradictions of his characters, who carry in themselves the entirety of the human condition."
--"Le Point"
"[T]his major author is establishing himself as one of the consciences of our confused age."
--"La Croix
""The logic of terrorism is taken to a virtually ultimate extent in this bloodcurdling successor to [Khadra's] highly praised novels...perhaps the most frighteningly plausible doomsday scenario yet to appear in fictional treatments of this seemingly insoluble crisis. And if it doesn't scare the hell out of you, you're not paying enough attention."
--"Kirkus Reviews"

“Compelling. . . . Khadra brings us deep into the hearts and minds of people living in unspeakable mental anguish.”
—"Los Angeles Times"
"Khadra's work has been compared to that of his Algerian compatriot Albert Camus, and "The Sirens of Baghdad" has a similar blaze of heat, the same heavy, insoluble questions. . . . The novel builds to a startling and wrenching finish."" "
—"San Francisco Chronicle"
"Nerve-wracking. . . . A blunt story line that has real passion behind it. The author's ear for Iraqi despair, fury and violation is keen."
—"The New York Times"

Reseña del editor:

The third novel in Yasmina Khadra's bestselling trilogy about Islamic fundamentalism has the most compelling backdrop of any of his novels: Iraq in the wake of the American invasion.

A young Iraqi student, unable to attend college because of the war, sees American soldiers leave a trail of humiliation and grief in his small village. Bent on revenge, he flees to the chaotic streets of Baghdad where insurgents soon realize they can make use of his anger. Eventually he is groomed for a secret terrorist mission meant to dwarf the attacks of September 11th, only to find himself struggling with moral qualms. The Sirens of Baghdad is a powerful look at the effects of violence on ordinary people, showing what can turn a decent human being into a weapon, and how the good in human nature can resist.

Compelling. . . . Khadra brings us deep into the hearts and minds of people living in unspeakable mental anguish. Los Angeles Times
