“Nir Baram’s World Shadow is an exciting and delightful novel and even more than that it is the official handbook for the global protest where ever it may be. A sensational worldwide plot, fascinating characters, touching writing flow and so much philosophy and psychology. I don’t know where the world protest is heading but I know that Nir Baram is already there.”

(Maariv, Ben Caspit)
