Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"Honour's" hero, Azeem, faces terrible threats, irreconcilable dilemmas... and this is what drove me to write the book.

Because those threats and dilemmas face countless people face today...

Do our lives have a meaning? Can we reconcile faith in something higher with the demands and pressures of the modern world? Is our love for seemingly shallow, consumer-society things a sign we ourselves are shallow?

What are we prepared to do for love? How far are we prepared to go? Will we kill for love, if doing so means betraying one's beliefs?

Idealistic Azeem gets pulled into a tragicomic nightmare, stumbling through a terrifying series of misunderstandings and conflicts which culminate in a bloody confrontation on the Turkish coast.

More About the Author

FREDDIE OMM is an award-winning advertiser who has worked at some of the world's most creative agencies. Born in Holland, he grew up in the USA, England and Indonesia, got a first class degree from Oxford before working in London, Milan, Amsterdam and Dusseldorf. He lives in a rambling old house in a small town in Germany with his wife, daughter and dog. "Honor" is his first thriller.

A shocking thriller, darkly funny, edgily post-feminist, "Honor" is about men who kill for honor, and the girls who drive them to it.

Freddie Omm also writes short stories, articles, poetry, children's stories, a couple of blogs, translations, ad copy and music.

He has had short stories and poetry published in the collection Words to Music (2011), as well as the Jericho Bugle and the Manchester Review.

MORE ABOUT "HONOR"

"Honor" was first written 2007-2008.

Its controversial nature made the established agents and publishers fearful of publishing it.

A more open-minded interest in Islamic culture, combined with rising outrage against so-called "honor" killings, have changed that.

"Honor" was published in March 2012 by Mad Bear Books and soon became an Amazon best-seller in the UK and Germany.

Format: Kindle Edition
Just as the 19th century's major conflict was industrialism, and the 20th century's was democracy over fascism and communism, it now appears the struggle of the 21st century will be western democracy over Islamic fundamentalism. This book deals with a question I've been asking myself for a long time--will Muslim immigrant populations ever truly integrate into British society.

But this is not merely an "issue" book. It is brilliantly written, stylistically fresh, full of vitality and biting reality. The characters are fascinating and conflicted, all on the edge of despair and violence. They are caught between the glitter of western pop culture, a desire for self-determination, and a genuine religious yearning. The interweaving of plots and the handling of different ethnic and social voices are masterful. I was riveted and moved. I haven't been as impressed with any political fiction since Philip Roth's "A Plot against America".
