And I fear for you. Even though I don't k Francesca, I don't know where I've read it but it also applies to you: You write like breathing. Even though I don't know you, even though I'll never meet you, even though this book isn't about you, I fear for you. That's the power of good writing. The power to engage other human beings into alien situations, and make them care.
That's what you are fucking doing. And I fucking thank you for it. I first encountered Francesca Borri's writing the same way many did — by reading her much-shared article about the second-class treatment of freelancers on the frontline. And it's exactly this sort of fame which distresses Borri, as she was never the story. It should always have been Syria. If Borri is still carrying this insidious guilt, she deserves the comfort of knowing that her book will speak to people. And by speak, I mean shout.

She captures the complexity and muddied politics of a ruined country through a human lens, and the immense suffering and wasted lives are never secondary concerns.

Nor should they be. Because at the end of the day, war is always more than right or wrong. It's about people and their stories — and these should never be forgotten. This book gives you a unpolished view of what the war in Syria looks like, without any villains or good guys. It is a raw report from the front lines that reflects on the ignorance of the West that has the power to construe the Syrian narrative.

Questo libro potrebbe davvero turbarvi. This is the most powerful book I have read since Walden. Thank you Francesca Borri for barring witness for those in Syria. Words cannot express the emotions I have after reading this book! Nothing makes sense in the world to allow false politicians to turn a blind eye to the atrocities in Syria. We all should feel shame. It was hard to read and yet important. I cannot express how important this book is. Please, please read it. It broke my heart a million times over. Very informative.
A bit repetitive at times. Also, the writing style didn't always suit my fancy. Numerosi anche i riferimenti agli equilibri politici globali. Da approfondire gli spunti dati dalle numerose citazioni di colleghi fotografi e giornalisti e ad un professore di diritto internazionale Cassese. I would gladly read anything that Francesca Borri writes that gets translated into English from her native Italian.
Syrian Dust: reporting from the heart of the battle for Aleppo , is a devastating critique of the Syrian conflict and its horrors; and Borri's account can be seen as either incredibly cynical or absolutely realistic. I suspect the latter is closer to the truth since her account ends in and NOTHING about the war has changed except to have grown worse. Now instead of coping with I would gladly read anything that Francesca Borri writes that gets translated into English from her native Italian.
Now instead of coping with barrel bombs taking out a building, the Syrians experience Russian jets with high-explosive bombs taking out city blocks. Syrian Dust is a must-read for anyone interested in the Middle East, not just for those interested in the Syrian situation. No organization comes off well in Borri's account, not the Syrian government, not the international community, not the NGOs, not the fighting factions, and not the Press. Borri is even self-critical. There are no winners in Syria. So objective and concise, you read her paragraphs and you can really see it, it made me feel sick.
Not out for her own benefit in writing this, that's the way it feels, and from a woman's perspective again is always different, she's not paying lip service to anyone or anything. Some perspectives in here that are hard to find - such as the true state of humanitarian involvement for one. The only thing was the printing style The content of this book was good and very eye-opening, however, the writing style didn't really work for me. Perhaps because it was a translation. There were some weird sentences starting with 'Because' and I couldn't figure out what the 'because' was connecting to.
It does give a good insight into some aspects of the war and I would recommend reading it to get a deeper understanding of the situation in Syria.

Made it to page 60 and then read a few more pages later on before calling it quits. The author is an Italian journalist who tells stories from her time on ground between and Expected more. Just finished reading the book not the audio book. Francesca is a fantastic journalist. Her work has really opened my eyes, this is easily one of the most illuminating books I have read this year!
So real, unbiased, detailed reporting of time spent in Aleppo during the Syrian War. So amazingly tragic to live there with the civilians who are trying hard to make it, which in turn, makes this book difficult to put down. The writing isnt amazing but it is powerful. A difficult read. But very, very enlightening. I couldn't help but think about Elie Wiesel while reading. Nov 02, Eleonora Borghi rated it it was amazing. Dec 05, Marco Lupis rated it it was amazing. Il suo sguardo sulla tragedia siriana mi ha ricordato il lavoro degli inviati "di una volta", quando si andava sul terreno, mischiandosi alle vittime e mangiando polvere ed orrore insieme a loro.
Da ammirare. E da leggere assolutamente. The time it took for Borri to write this book after multiple freelance read: basically unsupported, unfunded reporting trips to Aleppo in , and then the time it took for it to be translated into English, makes the book no less current, no less incisive, no less essential. In fact, its roiling emotion--rage, shame, fear, bewilderment--is only magnified by the knowledge that in the intervening years, things have only gotten worse, and the world has only continued to look away, or, if we look The time it took for Borri to write this book after multiple freelance read: basically unsupported, unfunded reporting trips to Aleppo in , and then the time it took for it to be translated into English, makes the book no less current, no less incisive, no less essential.
In fact, its roiling emotion--rage, shame, fear, bewilderment--is only magnified by the knowledge that in the intervening years, things have only gotten worse, and the world has only continued to look away, or, if we look, we don't really see. I needed to read this book in small doses as it covers the Syrian conflict in gruesome detail. Borri's work, which by three years predates the current reporting of Declan Walsh of the New York Times, remains uncanny in similarity. Comparing the work of Borri and Walsh demonstrates that little, if no progress, has been made in resolving the conflict or horror which the Syrian people face.
Borri's book remains a testament of the will of war correspondents who return to conflict time and again to b I needed to read this book in small doses as it covers the Syrian conflict in gruesome detail. Borri's book remains a testament of the will of war correspondents who return to conflict time and again to bring to light and remind the rest of the world of the suffering of the innocent.
