Tough one to sum up in a review this one While the content is great and the information about the Tuareg comes across as accurate and authentic I found it a hard book to maintain momentum with It is hard to explain because the story was interesting a return visit to Algeria after 30 years to reconnect with people the author had met and spent time with and the author had an obvious passion for the Tuareg and the experiences he had with them but it just didn't pass that passion on to the reader at timesMy coping mechanism in these cases is to read a couple of chapters of this then read a different book and return to this when complete or is a frame of mind to try this again Hence the long read duration almost a month This is course has the negative impact on the book in that there isn't the continuity or the ability to retain detail about the people in the narrativeNevertheless this isn't a bad book by any means and for those with some prior understanding of the Tuareg a particular interest in the the author or perhaps someone focussed on the reading it is probably compelling However I can't fault the content35 stars rounded down The author returned to Algeria after many years away and I guess went searching for ghosts of his past He bumped into a younger man Mokhtar and they took a look at the Hoggar region together It's a very simple story but it does give an insight into return and to making a new and different connection with a region A great travel book Keenan is a respected anthropologist who in recent years has perhaps been slightly too enamoured with conspiracy theories about CIA involvement and false flag operations in North Africa But don't let that deter you this book is a wonderful account of Algeria the Tuareg and how things had changed for both in the c30 years since he had been there
