Here’s what people are saying about The Shattered Lens:
“A gripping and a personal view of war by someone who has been there.”
– Andy McNab, author of Bravo Two Zero
“A chilling tale about how Alpeyrie managed to win the fragile esteem of his captors while simultaneously keeping his fried nerves from completely shorting out, as well as his personal take on armed conflict and global jihad. A gripping account of life in captivity and humankind's ongoing relationship to war.”
– Kirkus Reviews
"A keen photojournalist’s eye serves Alpeyrie well as he painstakingly recounts his capture in 2013 by rebels during Syria’s civil war . . . Throughout, he offers frank discussions about the illusion of freedom and the lure of violence, and offers a touching appreciation for the parental love and support he receives . . . In this harrowing story, Alpeyrie offers insights that deserve attention."
