    2 thoughts on “I, Who Did Not Die

    1. My words won't do this book justice. Read it, be prepared to be sickened by what we humans do to each other but uplifted by the resilience and hope these two men radiate. An incredibly well written account of the atrocities of war and the redemptive power of forgiveness. Wish I was a history teacher if only to make this book required reading.

    2. This memoir tells the story of two men one Iranian, one Iraqi. It starts with their childhoods and lives in better times before the Iran Iraq war. Zahed (Iraqi) joined the Basij paramilitary at just 13 to escape an abusive father and try to find the family he didn't have at home. Najah (Iranian) came from a typical middle class family with good memories. He didn't join voluntarily, but was conscripted at 18.So much is covered in this story, their immediate family, how their lives were affected ( [...]

    3. Amazing story of two men who meet as strangers and potential enemies during the Iran-Iraq War, one at the mercy of the other. Written in the first person by both men in alternating chapters which takes a little getting used to, but you feel as they are talking directly to you about the horrific things that happened to them at the hands of demonically inspired men and the tender mercies as well. Read and be inspired by their spirit to endure and by their bond of brotherly love.

    4. I, Who Did Not Die is an epic story that surpasses the test of time. Truly, an amazing and perilous journey of two soldiers whose crossroads led to one another. It was an easy and attention grabbing book that delivered real accounts that were mind-blowing in nature. It sounded like it was fictitious however these were the actual events of a war that was fought for naught.

    5. Such a haunting tale. I couldn’t put it down and certainly felt the pain, anger, happiness, and hope that these two men experienced. I’ll forever have this book in my mind. Certainly a favorite.

    6. Never have I read such a harrowing book - what these two men went through and survived will haunt me for a long time. The description of their meeting at the end of the book brought me to tears.

    7. Wonderfully moving and very well-written. The story is both heartbreaking and inspiring- also learned a great deal about the Iran-Iraq war.

    8. Extraordinary page turnerAn unbelievable story of humans' indomitable spirit that seeks to survive despite the chaos and brutality they are immersed in.What makes this book singularly compelling is that it tells the story of two men as fully fleshed-out individuals with stories about their families, their first loves, their school days, and how they had to endure a winding path through a violent conflict that was not something they either one believed in, cared about, or even wanted to participa [...]

    9. Autobiographies of 2 Iran-Iraq war veterans; one is Iraqi, one Iranian. The war starts in 1982 and ends in 1988. Both men are the oldest son in a big family and both drop out of school. Zahed is a 12-year-old boy soldier for Iran. Najah is a conscripted ex-soldier with a thriving falafel joint in Basra, Iraq. Neither soldier is particularly political or religious, but they love the smell of their city and the sound of their own language. Iran as Persia had been fighting Iraq as the Ottoman Empir [...]

    10. It is a book about life and death, about how our choices influence our path and the path of others. It describes the horrific cruelties which are happening in wars, and how to survive and be happy even after life has taken all from you, but mainly, it is about what it means to be human, kind and compassionate. It is an enjoyable book, and the fact that this is a story of two real men, makes it more captivating and interesting.

    11. I read the hardcover, but this is the only choice that came up when I wanted review it.The story of two soldiers, one Iraqi and one Iranian, whose paths crossed during the Iran-Iraq war. Well written page turner. Good coverage of the politics from an average soldier's perspective. And the ending is incredible. And it's a true story.

    12. Wonderful book--an account of two men, from opposite sides of the the Iran/Iraq war, who meet and later meet again, each saving the other's life. Their stories give a picture of this conflict, their societies. Very compelling. Their stories make the conflict real for me, more importantly the power of men to survive. Hard to say enough about this wonderful book.
