Good fences make good neighbours, but what about bad ones?'The Israeli separation barrier is probably the most iconic divider of land since the Berlin Wall. It has been declared illegal under international law and its impact on life in the West Bank has been enormous.Mark Thomas - as only he could - decided the only way to really get to grips with this huge divide was to use the barrier as a route map, to 'walk the wall', covering the entire distance with little more in his armoury than Kendal Mint Cake and a box of blister plasters.In the course of his ramble he was tear-gassed, stoned, sunburned, rained on and hailed on and even lost the wall a couple of times. But thankfully he was also welcomed and looked after by Israelis and Palestinians - from farmers and soldiers to smugglers and zookeepers - and finally earned a unique insight of the real Middle East in all its entrenched and yet life-affirming glory. And all without hardly ever getting arrested!… (més)

I really enjoy Mark Thomas's ability to treat serious issues with a twist of humour that enables people who wouldn't read a more heavyweight book (or watch TV programme) to become familiar with an issue. This book is no exception and it would be nice to see him write more.

In this book, Mark and his cameraman take a walk round Israel's illegal Separation Barrier, walking on both sides of the wall, with locals as guides, hosts and conversationalists. It's a moving, funny and witty description of the difficulties 'ordinary' people living by the wall have in trying to live their lives with a wall impinging on their life. His bewilderment at how some Israelis can justify the mistreatment of the Palestinians in the name of security is hauntingly genuine.

If you know very little about the situation in Israel, this is a good place to start; if you consider yourself to have a good understanding this provides a humane portrait of the reality; a light read of a heavy topic. ( )
