    The Flame Tree by Richard Lewis tells the story of a young boy named Isaac Williams who now lives in Indonesia after his parents were put to work there by the U.S. government. Personally, I found this to be a good book if you have some free time and you're not really busy doing much else. Each chapter it feels that it is wrapped up so well you can tell some good thought and hard work was put into this book. The author is very descriptive in his words as well and it almost paints a sharp image of [...]

    ‘The Flame Tree’ is a book dealing with Islamic fundamentalism after 9/11, stereotyping about the Islamic revolution over the world. It tries to show us the real Islam settling in U.S. It all goes around the experience that Isaac, a 12 years old American boy, who became bitter along with his friend who he met; Isaac’s adventure starts when he travels to U.S and experiences from the betrayal of terrorists. He tries to pardon those who have harmed him, though he doesn’t know if he can. His [...]

    Teen reading challenge. I'm conflicted about this one because it definitely gives a better view of Islam than if ALL the Muslims were terrorists, and yet the terrorists are awfully brutal. The Javanese setting is beautifully described, but the protagonist's time in captivity seems totally unrealistic. I don't really know how I feel about it, I guess. I mean, the "good guy" terrorist is going to make a big deal about the "peace be upon him" after Muhammad's name but then doesn't use it himself fo [...]

    For once i strayed out of my reading-comfort-zone and found that that can be quite a good thing to do. I enjoyed this novel about a 12 year old son of american Christian missionary doctors in islamic Indonesia. The two parties have always lived peacefully side by side, until the spring and summer of 2001 when a radical anti-american group of muslims pops up into the boys home town of Wonobo, the compound is all blocked off and the boy (Isaac) is no longer allowed to see his best friend. What rea [...]

    This book was very good I would tell everyone to read this. This book is very personal to Issac and tells a lot about him. I would read this book a lot if I could. I think that this book I very good because it gave a lot of detail. Also this book was very interesting because I didn't know about a lot of stuff in this book. Also I feel bad for Issac's parents because all they want if their son back. I also don't understand why in the book sometimes it was spelled like Issak instead of Issac.

    I met Richard few years a go when he launched this book. we had little bit conversation about The Flame Tree. He getting inspired this book from the situation in Indonesia about Islam and Christian. He make story about the friendship. A lovely friendship between two kids who have different culture and background.

    The Flame Tree is intelligent and thought-provoking. It is action packed and lyrical, a wonderful contribution to young adult literature, and an excellent read for older adults too.
