It’s refreshing that the main female characters are both strong, independent, confident women. Which is interesting that as a male writer the author captures both the feminine and vulnerable sides of these influential and decisive female characters. “Old Mother” is a fascinating woman "old and strong, authoritative and mystical at the same time" she remained a mystery to the end. "Ghazala" is seen throughout the story being just like one of the boys and in command yet in the end we see her sultry side, I love the ending. Wide range of readers would enjoy this book.
As Omari's journey developed slowly into an enticing plot of unpredictable circumstances, halfway through the story, I found myself reading eagerly to keep up with its movement- It was like watching a movie.
From the first introduction of the enigmatic "Old Mother" through the introduction of the cold sensuous lover, I appreciated the author's clever depictions of Women's Power!
Omari's transformation through the desert was as puzzling as that of the "Old Mother"... (You must read it).
Although this book is far from being a self help book, it does validate life's lessons of love, betrayal, perseverance, and hope. I absolutely loved it!
Note to the author: I am anxiously waiting for a sequel.
I really enjoyed this story. It feels like an old folk tale from the Arab deserts. It’s filled with humanity and majestic awe of nature and just a little bit of magic. And ultimately, it’s a story about right and wrong and how these decisions can impact a person’s personality. Throughout the hardships of the journey in the unrelenting desert, the struggles and conflicts that Omari and the people face change them. And as the story progresses, he and we learn about how people change and how peoples’ responses to situations are not always singularly driven. And so, this is a story about change. Omari himself is a likable character. From the beginning, the reader quickly becomes aligned with him and hates his enemies and loves his friends. Also, I liked the addition of the magic to the story. It really added to the folklore feel of the story and made it seem just a little more magical. Overall, this is a story about people and peoples’ lives.
The narration by Curt Simmons was fantastic. His characterization of each of the characters was amazing and they were all distinctive. The changes to peoples’ accents and way of speaking were consistent. I would definitely listen to another audiobook narrated by him. The production quality was also good. I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes listening to folklore and stories that are inspired by folklore.
Audiobook was provided for review by the narrator.
