    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Use of First Person Perspective, Multiple Points of View, and Real Incidents in Real TimeAfter the fourth war between Israel and Palestine in 1973, Palestine had to give up almost 60% of their territory, including Jerusalem, to Israel As a result, majority of Palestinians lost their land, home, and property Due to famine and shortage of money, Palestinians often had to go out to Israel where they would be unfairly treated and get arrested for illegally working The book, Real Time, by Pnina Mo Use of First Person Perspective, Multiple Points of View, and Real Incidents in Real TimeAfter the fourth war between Israel and Palestine in 1973, Palestine had to give up almost 60% of their territory, including Jerusalem, to Israel As a result, majority of Palestinians lost their land, home, and property Due to famine and shortage of money, Palestinians often had to go out to Israel where they would be unfairly treated and get arrested for illegally working The book, Real Time, by Pnina Moed Kass, is a realistic fiction showing conflict between Israel and Palestine during 1995 like the ones above To beprecise, it portrays conflicts between terrorists, patriots, soldiers, students, civilians, doctors and manyThe strong point in this book is that it doesn t convey only the facts or story of one single character, but delivers stories of various characters in order to show the story to the readersobjectively so that it gives them a chance to think about the incidence from all perspectives But how did the author did that to effectively reach the author s goal for the readers She used first person perspective, multiple points of view, and a main incident based on a real story People often say that experiencing is better than thousands of words In other words, if people experience, they can get the ideaeasily than reading explanations in words The author wants to convey the story and the theme effectively to the readers by setting the point of view of the story into first person perspective If to give some examples, I unzip my backpack and stick my hand in 3 , Yes I was trying to get around the yellow van 86 All of these sentences from the book are written in first person perspective since they all have I as the subject A first person perspective means that the character of the story is talking directly about themselves from in body perspective In this case, it has some advantages such as the fact that it gives the readers the feeling of being the character him or herself and being in the actual story By using this, the author is able to help the readers better understand what it feels to be involved in a terrorism event by providing liveliness, sense of realism, and a chance to think from the character s perspective Throughout the story, there are various perspectives that appear In other words, there are many different narrators in one book Why not just one What does the author able to gain by using multiple perspectives In order to comment that a story can contain various stories and to bring the storyobjectively In order to propose this, the author states the speaker and their location at the change of each perspectives Thomas Wanninger Departure terminal, Schonefeld Airport 3 , Baruch Ben Tov Kibbutz Broshim, Judean Hills 10 , Sameh Laham Olive grove, Judean Hills 21 , Dan Oron An army base somewhere in Israel 22 Various perspectives in only twenty two pages Multiple points of view means that the readers can hear one story from various people One narrator means, one story and, one translation However, multiple narrators, means multiple stories and different translation of the situation This can help the readers thinkobjectively about the incidence How the terrorists thought that attacking Israel was a patriotic act for their motherland, Palestine, and how the Israeli civilians thought that all Palestinians were just a bunch of terrorists., and the victims in fear of terrorism All these in one story can help the reader experience different explanations and thinkobjectively about the event The main event of this book, the bus attack, is actually, based on a real story, which took place in Israel According to Wikipedia, in 1995 Israel, a bus to Kfar Darom was attacked by a suicide bomber carrying bombs in a van, just like in the story Seven Israeli soldiers and one American civilian died, and the event was remembered as the Kfar Darom bus attack The Shaqaqi faction of the Islamic Jihad, claimed responsibility for the bombing As you can see, the main event in Real Time is based on a true terrorist attack Because of that, the author can help the readers understand better about the event terror or even a part of the main idea The author described the main event just like the terrorist attack The bus driver beeps his horn at the yellow van The van driver holds something large and black He looks up at the bus I can see his face It is Omar Why is Omar here Number 9 bus from Ben Gurion Airport to Jerusalem Explosion 77 At this point, the actual terror occurs Readers who already know about this can understand the story better, or find iteasy what the author is trying to say, such as conflict between Israel and Palestine, innocent victims killed in terrorist attacks and so on Or, the author might be able to attract readers who are interested in this kind of field or even people who are related to this event In it s final analysis, the goal of the author of this book is to convey the theme of the story effectively to the readers In order to tell and support the theme, the author used three other ways, which are using first person perspectives, writing in multiple points of view, and using an event that actually happened in real life as the main story By using multiple points of view, the author is able to bring the story to the readersobjectively, and deliver the idea that a story may contain many different ones This method is supported by first person perspectives which are contained throughout the story The narration done by first person perspective can give liveliness to the readers which can help them understand better about the story, idea or even the theme Also, to make it interesting for the readers, the main story of this realistic fiction is based on an actual event that occurred in 1995, Israel Kfar Darom bus attack Setting a story based on a true story can attract readers who are interested or even related to this kind of field With these three combined, first person perspective, multiple points of view, and a story based on an actual one, the author is able to effectively deliver her message to the readers

  3. Ian Ian says:

    I loved this book It s about a few people who all come to Israel, and the descriptions of their lives and how and why they came here But when they were all on a bus outside Jerusalem, it got bombed and all of them got seriously hurt, and all of their lives changed forever after this 1 event The book gave a really good description of their lives and how they got changed after the 1 event The action and suspense kept me reading this book for a long time This book was really good

  4. Izzy Izzy says:

    3.5 This book was a really interesting concept and takes place over only a few days Its fast pace, and is told from multiple perspectives However I could have done with a bitI felt it was too short with not too much resolution That being said I still thought this was a beautiful story with an array of different character perspectives.

  5. Maria Elena Maria Elena says:

    I ve never quite read a book written in such a manner before with the times and the different perspectives jumping back and forth And yet, this book was such an eye opener and so very powerful on so many levels It definitely is worth the read

  6. Sara Sara says:

    I wish it sharedabout the reasons for the Palestinians feeling desperate enough to bomb the bus.
