Playing Atari with Saddam Hussein: Based on a True Story

We rated this book:


I reviewed Playing Atari with Sadam Hussein. First of all, I didn’t even know it was a fictionalized biography until halfway into the book, so knowing that put me deeper into the story as I was finishing it. I like the Atari in the story. It’s kinda funny just sitting there, and I love the characters. I think my favorite was Mustafa, and then there are the brats you can’t get rid of, Omar and Umar. The characters have good personalities, and they had a storyline: Good Guy – Person in the middle – Bad guy.

I can tell that the Fadhil family was always grateful when they had one chocolate square or a can of coke; things that we have every day and take for granted. I really enjoyed the book, even though I didn’t think I would at first. I am closing my review with a thank you for sending me this book! I give it 4.5 stars.
