This largely plotless parable esue little novel is worth reading it's an effective evocation of a world that sounds like a dystopian satire until you set it alongside dispatches from Syria when it suddenly starts to seem brightly optimistic than reality But while the narrator's voice is compelling and the sense of stifling heat noise and bureaucracy shines through it's unsatisfying as a novel full of stagnant sketched out characters and unresolved plot points

S told to report to the police station before night falls   When Fathi turns himself in he is led from one department to another in an ever widening bureaucratic labyrinth His only weapon against the irrationality of the government employees is his sense of irony Tinged with a Kafkaesue sense of the absurd The Silence and the Roar explores what it means to be truly free in mind and body. This well written novel by Syrian author Nihad Sirees conveys what life is like in a country ruled an oppressive totalitarian regime His storytelling is compelling as the reader follows a day in the life of a writer who clearly has a lot in common with the author who has been banned by the government for his critical writing Sirees has written a number of plays and tv series and this is evident in his writing In fact this novel would make a good movie I wish people in the West would read books like this so they might have an idea of what people in other parts of the world live with I must add that I had this book for awhile but kept putting off reading it because I thought it would be too depressing While the subject matter is not light this novel is uite readable and even rather humorous It makes one realize and appreciate how people manage to cope with an atrocious situation
