    1. Binebine's novel immediately places us in the complex, sordid, and filthy--yes, filthy--business of migration over the Strait of Gibraltar from Morocco to Spain. Under no uncertain terms is this a journey to be romanticized, as the narrative makes clear by the contrast of "Paradise" in the translated title and the opening pages describing of Reda's gastrointestinal problems. (The original French language title, 'Cannibales,' functions differently) Yet this is simultaneously an opportunity to sho [...]


    2. Best of the Morocco fiction I've read to date. The story is engaging while remaining just to the good side of being overly dramatic. The stories of corruption and various ways people suffer in North Africa are sad but probable.


    3. I read this book in Dutch, and out of interest of the current theme of boat refugees risking their lives to make it to Europe. It's so easy to pretend not to understand why people make such choices.From the start, I was captured by the Binebine's poetic way of writing. In spite of the storyline being quite filthy and even gruesome from time to time. Even though there are some moments of happiness depicted in the book, it paints a gloomy story. Each of the characters we meet in the book feels to [...]


    4. I'm bumping it up a star because of the quality of the writing. Just based on my enjoyment of it, I'd give it 2. The overarching story is of North Africans waiting on a beach to be trafficked into Europe, for various reasons. Each character's back story is explored in more depth. The writing was quite lyrical, and I found many of the character's stories interesting. But the whole book was filled with so much sadness with very little hope. It is a very gritty novel, and I found myself wishing tha [...]


    5. Mahi Binebine is the first Moroccan writer I have read and I really liked this for the important subject matter it addresses.The desperations and aspirations are finely portrayed, in a situation that has become an industry unto itself across Fortress Europe. The yearnings for European utopia are particularly touching as a reader from a Europe that is looking increasingly dystopian and unwelcoming of anyone not able to offer blood and profit.I hope to read Mahi Binebine's other translated novel s [...]


    6. Impressive and harrowing. The writing (or should I say the translation) is at many times poetic and poignant, reaching its greatest heights when it describes the hopes of this group of people with their sights set on their new lives in France. Just putting that level of desperation into words for a group that's learned to remain silent and invisible is remarkable in itself; to do it in a way that feels so real, that doesn't have a hint of condescension but that surprises you repeatedly, is a rea [...]


    7. I won this book on a giveaway. I am not even sure how to write a review simply because I found the book to be quite bland. I was pretty shocked by one particular section where the main character spoke about his teacher having relations with him. I was not expecting that part. The characters themselves did have interesting backgrounds but the story could have been told better.



    8. harkens to the stranger in its abstraction (and morrocan beach element) but also all those heartbreaking stories of people trying to get accross the rio grande and sonoran desert.


    9. Toepasselijk boek voor deze tijd, ook al is het eigenlijk van alle tijden, mensen op zoek naar een beter leven, naar liefde en een toekomst.
