Read from August 28 to September 07, 2010

This book was alright. It was a fast read in that I could read it quickly...but the story itself was really slow and really lacking on action. It was originally written in Arabic by an Egyptian writer, so I wonder if the lack of appeal is that it was coming from a different cultural perspective?

The main character is interesting. And at the end, it did leave me wondering momentarily what happened after that.

Overall, I don't have any good reason to recommend it to you.
