The Tears of Olive Trees by AbdulKarim Al Makadma


Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me. Online Book Club provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.

Book cover shows the shadowed form of a boy sitting under a tree, with a vibrant gold, mauve, and violet sunset in the background

The Tears of Olive Trees: An Autobiographic Story Featuring Poems From Mahmoud Darwish by AbdulKarim Al Makadma


Even with its grievous subject matter, this autobiographical and multigenerational account of a Palestinian family’s exile in Gaza is inspirational. I’d recommend it to anyone concerned with justice, compassion, and peace for humanity.

Officially reviewed at with 4 out of 4 stars. Do take a look.
