This book has a very interesting storyline that seems to based on fact. Its about the Zabbaleen of Cairo. I'm not sure if these are real people or just made up, but the way the Anna Perera wrote it made it seem that it was based on reality, and could possibly be true.

The story itself didn't have a very exciting plot at the start, but it was a little better as the story wore on. This book was a slight bit boring, and I lost interest in some places. I liked the idea of the plot, and the topic was quite interesting. This topic makes you think quite a bit, as you think about whether or not these things happen to real people, and I'm pretty sure they do.

The characters are well written, but sometimes they weren't very clear, and I got quite confused on what was happening. I liked them a lot, but they weren't anything special.

I love the writing style, it was quite similar to a lot of other books, but it had its own slight difference that is hard to explain in words.

All in all, this is a good book, that you may enjoy if you liked realistic fiction that has a main focus on a present crisis that is major issue in today's society.
