    If anyone deserves to get the life he has prepared for and does by example strive toward with work/goals continually forward, it is this author. He is also a born capitalist in his soul, IMHO. Not to mention that his intellect is coupled with a personality born whole and then honed by ...

    This is one of the most amazing stories I have ever read ? and it is a true story! Across the top of the front cover of the book is a very powerful description ? ?Four Strangers, Three Faiths, and One Extraordinary Escape to Freedom?. Mohammed Al Samawi grew up in Yemen bein...

    I won a copy in a giveaway -- and I'm so glad I did! This was a very well put together story of a refugee's experience in faith, friendship, and international affairs. There was a lot of explanation of the war in Yemen, which was a little slow at times, but helped me (as someone who wa...

    Mohammad grew up in Yemen and was taught that Westerners and Jews were evil and an enemy to all Muslims. A college level course provided him a fateful interaction with a Western man that led to his continued education in other religions, cultures and nationalities. This is a moving mem...

    I didn't know much about the causes of the war in Yemen until I read this book. It still doesn't make much sense to me because it boils down to "Those people look different than us and think differently than us." It is that kind of mindset that Mohammed Al Samawi was working a...

    "The Fox Hunt" is the story of Mohammed who dreams of making his home country of Yemen a better place where more young people can succeed and be safe. Yemen is embroiled in a brutal civil war where the lines between the various sides and outside influence from brutal terrorist groups a...

    An important read for today's conflict in Yemen. 4 stars because the harrowing story is, I feel, just the beginning for this author's contribution to his country. I reviewed an early copy of this book as part of the TLC Book Tour - please find my full review available APRIL 17, 201...

    Thank you, @tlcbooktours, for my free review copy. All opinions are my own. While reading @alsawami?s memoir, THE FOX HUNT, I was continually relieved by the fact that I?ve never had to know a day in my life of bullets whizzing by my ears and bombs falling from the sky. I have h...

    This is the story that kept me on the edge of my seat. Imagine being a country torn by civil war and you are a wanted man. The situation is deteriorating and you need to get out ? but how? Oh, and that country is Yemen. The Fox Hunt is the memoir of the man in this story. In this ...

    This book is one that is outside my usual type of reading. It reads as though the author is telling you his story as a friend over a cup of coffee. It is a true story about a Muslim in Yemen, who grew up learning to hate Jews and Christians. When he became friends with a westerner at s...

    This was a mind blowing story about how a man from Yemen made connections with people around the world and how those people moved mountains to save that man's life by getting him out of war torn Yemen. The whole time I was reading this book, I thought, this is so extraordinary. I'd nev...

    Are there any skeptics out there who are skeptical about the value of interfaith dialogue? This book will convert you. If there is a book that will drive home the point that there are good people in every faith who will do whatever it takes to do the right thing, this book is it. A Mus...

    Mohammed Al Samawi is a person to admire and emulate. He is a humanist, a caring questioner, an activist who chooses to put his well thought out love of humanity and understanding of religions into action by working in NGOs. His life thus far shows how good comes from good, how love is...

    If for no other reason you want to get a better idea of the Muslim faith, and the history of the Middle East conflicts between various Muslim sects, this is a phenomenal book. I gained a much better understanding of the Muslim religion just by reading this book, and the long history of...

    This story is incredible. Even though we know that it ends with the author's safety, it is a captivating read. I have met several of the people in this book, including Mohammed, had lunch with others, and am a close friend of one of Mohammed's friend, also mentioned on the book. They d...

    Wow, this was an informative, exciting, and inspiring story! I really admire the author's compassion and open-mindedness. And, I am in awe of the the many who helped him, with their commitment, helpfulness, and generosity. This book details the devastating situation in Yemen, but leave...

    I read this in less than 24 hours. A screenwriter couldn't have woven a more edge-of-your-seat thriller - and this actually happened. I was lucky enough to meet Mohammed soon after he made it to the US, but had no idea of the extent of what went on to make his escape possible. I finish...

    A Must Read This is a must read for every American. This should be taught in high school! If I had had any inkling that I could have so much power to change even some small part of the world when I was in my twenties...Wow. I have so much Faith in our younger generations. We must a...

    A real touching memoir of a young man named Mohammed who is truly inspiring. The story is how 4 strangers, three faiths, the power of social media who helped a young man escape from a war in Yemen. How they planned one extraordinary escape to freedom. Truly gave you hope and made you r...

    This was a gripping memoir about the writer's harrowing escape from Yemin after a civil war erupted there in 2015. Growing up a Muslim, he was taught to think of Jews and Christians as enemies. He knew nothing else, but when he began connecting with them he changed his mind. The ones h...

    A truly incredible tale that brings light to the situation in Yemen, shines a light on how humanity can truly come together, and yet also the horrible things humans can do to each other. While perhaps not the greatest writing in the world, the story is very compelling. ...

    I am writing my memoirs so I?m reading memories and this was a good one Very natural presentation I was not bored. Though it?s not a model for me I enjoyed reading it over just a few days. ...

    Riveting and captivating. Amazing what Mohammed has overcome to escape horrible circumstances. This book/story is inspiring and gives you a good feeling about good/kind people in the world. I highly recommend this book for a great read. I won this book in a GoodReads Giveaway. ...

    Such an incredible story! Mohammed Al Samawi and his Facebook friends are such an inspiration and a testament to how anyone can truly make a difference. ?We all have our own stories, but if we can start to connect - online and in real life - we can start to see just how similar the...

    Powerful, moving, compellingly readable, and true! Al Samawi?s path is inspiring and can be summarized in the book?s final phrase: ?Let us move toward peace.? ...

    I was provided this ARC for free from TLC Book Tours in exchange for my review. This book is a MUST read. One of my fave memoirs read this year so far. ???? I was provided this ARC for free from TLC Book Tours in exchange for my review. This book is a MUST read. One of...

    If anyone deserves to get the life he has prepared for and does by example strive toward with work/goals continually forward, it is this author. He is also a born capitalist in his soul, IMHO. Not to mention that his intellect is coupled with a personality born whole and then honed by ...

    This is one of the most amazing stories I have ever read ? and it is a true story! Across the top of the front cover of the book is a very powerful description ? ?Four Strangers, Three Faiths, and One Extraordinary Escape to Freedom?. Mohammed Al Samawi grew up in Yemen bein...

    I won a copy in a giveaway -- and I'm so glad I did! This was a very well put together story of a refugee's experience in faith, friendship, and international affairs. There was a lot of explanation of the war in Yemen, which was a little slow at times, but helped me (as someone who wa...

    Mohammad grew up in Yemen and was taught that Westerners and Jews were evil and an enemy to all Muslims. A college level course provided him a fateful interaction with a Western man that led to his continued education in other religions, cultures and nationalities. This is a moving mem...

    I didn't know much about the causes of the war in Yemen until I read this book. It still doesn't make much sense to me because it boils down to "Those people look different than us and think differently than us." It is that kind of mindset that Mohammed Al Samawi was working a...

    "The Fox Hunt" is the story of Mohammed who dreams of making his home country of Yemen a better place where more young people can succeed and be safe. Yemen is embroiled in a brutal civil war where the lines between the various sides and outside influence from brutal terrorist groups a...

    An important read for today's conflict in Yemen. 4 stars because the harrowing story is, I feel, just the beginning for this author's contribution to his country. I reviewed an early copy of this book as part of the TLC Book Tour - please find my full review available APRIL 17, 201...

    Thank you, @tlcbooktours, for my free review copy. All opinions are my own. While reading @alsawami?s memoir, THE FOX HUNT, I was continually relieved by the fact that I?ve never had to know a day in my life of bullets whizzing by my ears and bombs falling from the sky. I have h...

    This is the story that kept me on the edge of my seat. Imagine being a country torn by civil war and you are a wanted man. The situation is deteriorating and you need to get out ? but how? Oh, and that country is Yemen. The Fox Hunt is the memoir of the man in this story. In this ...

    This book is one that is outside my usual type of reading. It reads as though the author is telling you his story as a friend over a cup of coffee. It is a true story about a Muslim in Yemen, who grew up learning to hate Jews and Christians. When he became friends with a westerner at s...

    This was a mind blowing story about how a man from Yemen made connections with people around the world and how those people moved mountains to save that man's life by getting him out of war torn Yemen. The whole time I was reading this book, I thought, this is so extraordinary. I'd nev...

    Are there any skeptics out there who are skeptical about the value of interfaith dialogue? This book will convert you. If there is a book that will drive home the point that there are good people in every faith who will do whatever it takes to do the right thing, this book is it. A Mus...

    Mohammed Al Samawi is a person to admire and emulate. He is a humanist, a caring questioner, an activist who chooses to put his well thought out love of humanity and understanding of religions into action by working in NGOs. His life thus far shows how good comes from good, how love is...

    If for no other reason you want to get a better idea of the Muslim faith, and the history of the Middle East conflicts between various Muslim sects, this is a phenomenal book. I gained a much better understanding of the Muslim religion just by reading this book, and the long history of...

    This story is incredible. Even though we know that it ends with the author's safety, it is a captivating read. I have met several of the people in this book, including Mohammed, had lunch with others, and am a close friend of one of Mohammed's friend, also mentioned on the book. They d...

    Wow, this was an informative, exciting, and inspiring story! I really admire the author's compassion and open-mindedness. And, I am in awe of the the many who helped him, with their commitment, helpfulness, and generosity. This book details the devastating situation in Yemen, but leave...

    I read this in less than 24 hours. A screenwriter couldn't have woven a more edge-of-your-seat thriller - and this actually happened. I was lucky enough to meet Mohammed soon after he made it to the US, but had no idea of the extent of what went on to make his escape possible. I finish...

    This was a gripping memoir about the writer's harrowing escape from Yemin after a civil war erupted there in 2015. Growing up a Muslim, he was taught to think of Jews and Christians as enemies. He knew nothing else, but when he began connecting with them he changed his mind. The ones h...

    When I was in college, I had to write a paper in my comparative governments class about a country I knew nothing about. We drew them from a hat. I drew Yemen. From that day, I have followed Yemen in the news. So when I won a copy of Fox Hunt, I was excited to read it. Now I sit, crying...

    I won a copy in a giveaway -- and I'm so glad I did! This was a very well put together story of a refugee's experience in faith, friendship, and international affairs. There was a lot of explanation of the war in Yemen, which was a little slow at times, but helped me (as someone who wa...

    Mohammad grew up in Yemen and was taught that Westerners and Jews were evil and an enemy to all Muslims. A college level course provided him a fateful interaction with a Western man that led to his continued education in other religions, cultures and nationalities. This is a moving mem...

    I didn't know much about the causes of the war in Yemen until I read this book. It still doesn't make much sense to me because it boils down to "Those people look different than us and think differently than us." It is that kind of mindset that Mohammed Al Samawi was working a...

    An important read for today's conflict in Yemen. 4 stars because the harrowing story is, I feel, just the beginning for this author's contribution to his country. I reviewed an early copy of this book as part of the TLC Book Tour - please find my full review available APRIL 17, 201...

    Thank you, @tlcbooktours, for my free review copy. All opinions are my own. While reading @alsawami?s memoir, THE FOX HUNT, I was continually relieved by the fact that I?ve never had to know a day in my life of bullets whizzing by my ears and bombs falling from the sky. I have h...

    This is the story that kept me on the edge of my seat. Imagine being a country torn by civil war and you are a wanted man. The situation is deteriorating and you need to get out ? but how? Oh, and that country is Yemen. The Fox Hunt is the memoir of the man in this story. In this ...

    This book is one that is outside my usual type of reading. It reads as though the author is telling you his story as a friend over a cup of coffee. It is a true story about a Muslim in Yemen, who grew up learning to hate Jews and Christians. When he became friends with a westerner at s...

    This was a mind blowing story about how a man from Yemen made connections with people around the world and how those people moved mountains to save that man's life by getting him out of war torn Yemen. The whole time I was reading this book, I thought, this is so extraordinary. I'd nev...

    Are there any skeptics out there who are skeptical about the value of interfaith dialogue? This book will convert you. If there is a book that will drive home the point that there are good people in every faith who will do whatever it takes to do the right thing, this book is it. A Mus...

    If for no other reason you want to get a better idea of the Muslim faith, and the history of the Middle East conflicts between various Muslim sects, this is a phenomenal book. I gained a much better understanding of the Muslim religion just by reading this book, and the long history of...

    This story is incredible. Even though we know that it ends with the author's safety, it is a captivating read. I have met several of the people in this book, including Mohammed, had lunch with others, and am a close friend of one of Mohammed's friend, also mentioned on the book. They d...

    Wow, this was an informative, exciting, and inspiring story! I really admire the author's compassion and open-mindedness. And, I am in awe of the the many who helped him, with their commitment, helpfulness, and generosity. This book details the devastating situation in Yemen, but leave...

    An important read for today's conflict in Yemen. 4 stars because the harrowing story is, I feel, just the beginning for this author's contribution to his country. I reviewed an early copy of this book as part of the TLC Book Tour - please find my full review available APRIL 17, 201...

    Thank you, @tlcbooktours, for my free review copy. All opinions are my own. While reading @alsawami?s memoir, THE FOX HUNT, I was continually relieved by the fact that I?ve never had to know a day in my life of bullets whizzing by my ears and bombs falling from the sky. I have h...

    This is the story that kept me on the edge of my seat. Imagine being a country torn by civil war and you are a wanted man. The situation is deteriorating and you need to get out ? but how? Oh, and that country is Yemen. The Fox Hunt is the memoir of the man in this story. In this ...

    This book is one that is outside my usual type of reading. It reads as though the author is telling you his story as a friend over a cup of coffee. It is a true story about a Muslim in Yemen, who grew up learning to hate Jews and Christians. When he became friends with a westerner at s...

    This was a mind blowing story about how a man from Yemen made connections with people around the world and how those people moved mountains to save that man's life by getting him out of war torn Yemen. The whole time I was reading this book, I thought, this is so extraordinary. I'd nev...

    Are there any skeptics out there who are skeptical about the value of interfaith dialogue? This book will convert you. If there is a book that will drive home the point that there are good people in every faith who will do whatever it takes to do the right thing, this book is it. A Mus...

    Mohammed Al Samawi is a person to admire and emulate. He is a humanist, a caring questioner, an activist who chooses to put his well thought out love of humanity and understanding of religions into action by working in NGOs. His life thus far shows how good comes from good, how love is...

    If for no other reason you want to get a better idea of the Muslim faith, and the history of the Middle East conflicts between various Muslim sects, this is a phenomenal book. I gained a much better understanding of the Muslim religion just by reading this book, and the long history of...

    This story is incredible. Even though we know that it ends with the author's safety, it is a captivating read. I have met several of the people in this book, including Mohammed, had lunch with others, and am a close friend of one of Mohammed's friend, also mentioned on the book. They d...

    Wow, this was an informative, exciting, and inspiring story! I really admire the author's compassion and open-mindedness. And, I am in awe of the the many who helped him, with their commitment, helpfulness, and generosity. This book details the devastating situation in Yemen, but leave...

    I read this in less than 24 hours. A screenwriter couldn't have woven a more edge-of-your-seat thriller - and this actually happened. I was lucky enough to meet Mohammed soon after he made it to the US, but had no idea of the extent of what went on to make his escape possible. I finish...

    This was a gripping memoir about the writer's harrowing escape from Yemin after a civil war erupted there in 2015. Growing up a Muslim, he was taught to think of Jews and Christians as enemies. He knew nothing else, but when he began connecting with them he changed his mind. The ones h...
