Freedom Hospital is a mix of fact and fiction based around an underground Syrian hospital which tends to injured rebels At the start of the book it feels like the rebels wanted a peaceful solution to the country's problems As time goes on and the death toll climbs they are turned to violence too This leaves a space for extremists to recruit those who feel failed by both sides and we see how Isis tried to take advantage of the situationAs well as these three factions of course there are those who just want to get on with their lives along with their human rights so uashed by Assad The daily death count printed at the top of the pages is a saddenign reminder of the senseless loss of the conflictAssad's regime is propped up by foreign weapons and throughout the pages the tanks planes and artillery are tagged by who provided what a lot from Russia but tother countries aren't innocent eitherIf you're uite well informed of the Syria situation I'm not sure reading this will add much but it serves as a good introduction It's not an intensely personal approach as Hamid has used anecdotes from many of his friends who stayed behind rather than writing an account of his own experienceI'm not a huge fan of the artwork but its sparseness does fit with the subject matter here

Hospital illuminates a complicated situation with gut wrenching detail and very dark humor The story of Syria is one of the most devastating narratives of our age and Freedom Hospital is an important and timely book from a new international talent. It's near impossible to tell an uplifting or a comprehensive story of the still ongoing wars within Syria and this book doesn't attempt to do so but tells a story of complicated situations that can't be contained within a binary of good and evil Sulaiman himself a Syrian refugee attempts to educate foreigners on the international scope of the war in his home country and show that there are kind and caring people within who believe in the human right to survive The Syrian war carries so much tragedy day after day and as foreigners we don't get to see many individual stories on the news This novel was finished in 2016 and just a few months ago in 2019 new terrible dimensions of the civil war unfold drawing deaths and despair Fck

Freedom HospitalJOE SACCO MEETS PERSEPOLIS IN THIS GRAPHIC NOVEL FROM A NEW INTERNATIONAL TALENT HAMID SULAIMAN WINNER ENGLISH PEN AWARD It is spring and people have died since the start of the Syrian Arab Spring In the wake of this Yasmine has set up a clandestin. This is the kind of book I always feel bad about not liking better It's important subject matter about real lives being destroyed or sent into upheaval And yet all I do is wonder why the author didn't provide context for the events and characters who wander through his tale and I end up spending too much time focused on the inadeuacies of the story and art Some people live some people die and this story does not do much to make me care about any of them It doesn't help that this is a fictionalized account of the Syrian Civil War and so I have to wonder how much license is being taken Also there is a constant refrain of x number of days pass and y number of people die It's a horrifying reminder of the toll but it also serves to start causing a detachment and makes me think of that awful old Stalin uote The death of one man is a tragedy the death of millions is a statistic It's staggering to think how this story is set like five or six years ago and how the death and suffering has just continued unabated in the interim But again the creator doesn't manage to bring this home to me between the covers of his bookAnd no the author having a character acknowledge the cheesiness of an amnesia storyline in the script does not then make the amnesia storyline not cheesyThe art is full of big black blotches that at times seem less like illustrations and like Rorschach test inkblots Characters are drawn in an almost impressionistic style with a minimum of lines so they are sometimes difficult to tell apart Action is sometimes difficult to followI was hoping for something that would educate and move me but instead I'm left wishing I had read something else
