Title: To Afghanistan And Back
Writer: Ted Rall
Artist: Ted Rall
Price: $ 9.95 US
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Comments: This is a graphic travelogue chronicling Ted Rall's travels in Afghanistan. This book seems to put down the U.S. It talks about how unprepared it was for 911 but really how could anyone prepare for that. The illustrations are simple.
Some of the views expressed by Ted Rall may not be looked at favorably by Americans. They are his views though and that is what the American troops fought and died for so he and others have the right of freedom of expression.
"The Ain't No Game" is the illustrated graphic novel part. It chronicles Ted Rall's days in afghanistan in drawings as well as words. He gives a very open and frank look at conditions there. The art is simple but still brings across the message conditions in Afghanistan are not well. The way journalists live while reporting stories there is unbelievable but true. The U.S. government seemed to not care at all about the safetly of its own reporters.
The Afghanistan people are helpful beyond belief to each other compared to Americans and lots of others.
The dispatchs Ted Rall filed while in Afghanistan are reprinted here. They tell his story with vivid detail. Its not pretty. He provides a well written account of what Afghanistan was like during his visit. He mentions the censorship that occurs in American journalism which he does not have here in this book.
