A truly beautiful story, with complexity. Beautifully written. Everyone should read. I would compare it to the Kite Runner. ( )

This story is about Adam, a young Iraqi from a Christian family in Baghdad during Saddam Hussein’s dictatorship. It was really interesting and sad to read how life was for families during this time. Adam writes the story for his friend Jon and is about the things that happened to him during his life. I thought it was a really good book. ( )

Oh. My. God. This book really got to me, emotionally-speaking. Thankfully, it was relatively short and very easy to breeze through. However, I did try to take my time so that all of the stories could fully sink in. My heart was breaking for Adam, his family, and his friends. There were several instances in which I felt my heart physically aching because of the torture they all went through. If you want to read a book that will truly give you a different perspective on life, this is the book for you. ( )

This book tugged at my heartstrings. Reading about Adam's life in Iraq and all the injustice and hardship his family endured, was sad. I enjoyed how the book was filled with hope regardless. Adam's dad says to Adam, "In this life, you must be prepared to lose everyone and everything at any time. Otherwise, you will always be sad and shocked." That line pretty much sums up the book especially in regards to the twist at the end.

Special thanks to LibraryThing's Member's Giveaway for this free book and the opportunity to read and review it. ( )

It Was You by Raed Slewa is the story of a christian man, Adam, recounting his childhood in Iraq during Saddam Husseins dictatorship. The beginning and end of the book are with Adam in the present as he talks to his childhood best friend, Jon, on the phone after an attempted suicide. After the first chapter I was hooked. I loved the writing so so much. It was incredible and very disheartening to read about what life was like during Husseins dictatorship and the religious discriminations that christians received. I will definitely be recommending this to friends. ( )
