LONG-LISTED FOR THE CARNEGIE MEDAL Reminiscent of the work of Nobel Prize winner Svetlana Alexievich, an astonishing collection of intimate wartime testimonies and poetic fragments from a cross-section of Syrians whose lives have been transformed by revolution, war, and flight. Against the backdrop of the wave of demonstrations known as the Arab Spring, in 2011 hundreds of thousands of Syrians took to the streets demanding freedom, democracy and human rights. The government's ferocious response, and the refusal of the demonstrators to back down, sparked a brutal civil war that over the past five years has escalated into the worst humanitarian catastrophe of our times. Yet despite all the reporting, the video, and the wrenching photography, the stories of ordinary Syrians remain unheard, while the stories told about them have been distorted by broad brush dread and political expediency. This fierce and poignant collection changes that. Based on interviews with hundreds of displaced Syrians conducted over four years across the Middle East and Europe, We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled is a breathtaking mosaic of first-hand testimonials from the frontlines. Some of the testimonies are several pages long, eloquent narratives that could stand alone as short stories; others are only a few sentences, poetic and aphoristic. Together, they cohere into an unforgettable chronicle that is not only a testament to the power of storytelling but to the strength of those who face darkness with hope, courage, and moral conviction.… (més)

It feels strange to rate a book like this. Because I don’t want to be rating a person’s struggles, trauma, losses... but the way Wendy Pearlman put these fragments of people’s stories and thoughts, combined with the introduction, really helps for those even not deeply familiar with details of what has happened in Syria to understand what those ‘news events’ mean for very real human beings.

If someone wants to try and understand what’s going on in Syria from the perspective of those who ultimately felt they had no choice but to flee their country and everything this once knew, I think this book will really help you to that. It can be hard at some points to process what you read is something that really happened. Not just that, but recently happened. But, I think especially because of that it’s important to know stories like those shared in this books pages. ( )

An excellent retrospective of events in Syria told by actual Syrians. The final chapter is particularly moving. ( )

This puts faces and names to the political, social and humanitarian plight in Syria. Everyone should read this. This is happening now and yet we know so little of it. “Every Syrian has a hundred stories in his heart; Every Syrian is himself a story.” ( )

Collected stories of people who have lived in Syria during the horrific civil war. It is a first-hand account of the real-life suffering of those that have survived.

Rating a book like this is hard because the accounts in this book are real and terrible. The stories are not to be taken lightly. Many people died and had they not have this book would not have to exist.

I feel like the formatting of the stories could have been better. I read this a bit ago and honestly, I do not remember much… but I think that is because of how I have trained my mind to get over the dark side of my illness. I try to let the negative go and move on. That does not mean I think what these people went through should not be ignored.

This is a book that I wish did not exist. I do remember it was a tough read and very real encounters. ( )
