Review: Levy’s Who Killed Daniel Pearl

Who Killed Daniel Pearl?
Bernard Henri Levi

Levy is an ass. Frankly, I have no idea why I thought reading this book was going to be a good idea. Perhaps it was worth the five hours or so it took to knock this one out, just so I know never to read anything by this guy again, even if it is about issues and a part of the world that I would generally be very interested in.

This would have been a good book if he had stuck to an investigative narrative of what happened to Daniel Pearl and stayed away from philosophizing about the nature of the Islamic extremist soul and/or crowing about how brave/moral he is. Horrible book written by a horrible person.

Not recommended.
