THE JIHAD NEXT DOOR The Lakawanna Six and Rough Justice in an Age of Terror

by | Read by Marguerite Gavin

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

The timely story tells of six Islamic youths from an immigrant Yemeni community in Lackawanna, New York, who attend an Al Qaeda training camp in Pakistan and meet Bin Laden himself. When they realize all the "killing and suicide stuff" isn't their cup of tea and return to the U.S., their lives change forever. Marguerite Gavin's brisk pace suits the audiobook's flavor as it maintains the flow of an action-adventure. She handles the abundant Arabic names and places with ease, creating a smooth and artistic presentation. Gavin does a few gruff male voices but doesn't make a distracting drama with the characters. She has the coveted ability to disappear as a narrator, letting the story take the limelight it deserves. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 08]
