Inside the Story: Immersive and Personal Journalism

Memoir tends to be subjective, while journalistic writing aims at objective treatment of a topic. Then there are those books that combine these strengths, exploring a topic of interest from within, either through the eyes of someone whose experience gives them a revealing perspective, or a journalist who immerses themselves in the world they’re writing about.

Brilliant film and, although different, excellent book.

These explorations of the personal and political complexities of Afghanistan and Pakistan were funny and illuminating. The movie took a number of liberties but I enjoyed it as much as the book.

The author was able to maintain political neutrality which I would hope for in a journalist while illustrating the failure of local leaders and the international community in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

She also shows her personal growth in light of friendship and dating challenges in a war zone and vastly different culture.

I liked it for these reasons and for the clarity of her writing style

Not enjoyable at all. It played like a documentary and not a very good one. So disappointing as the "jacket" of the dvd pumped it up as "the best" and a comedy. I don't remember laughing at anything in this movie, much less smiling. Very disappointing.

Yet another mindless, witless, know-nothing yahoo of an American newsy who still hasn't - - and probably never will - - grasp the underlying agenda of American super-imperialism. [She actually believes America is trying to // get it right \\ - - what a hopeless fool!]
