it was amazing
Read from September 08 to 09, 2012 — I own a copy

this is not a small book, yet i pretty
much gobbled it up within 48 hours of starting.
set in the middle east, wilson manages to
seamlessly weave ancient folklore with modern
day technology, raising profound and pertinent
questions on what it is like to live in our world
today: religion and belief warring with
technology and internet access speed.

a compelling read with fantastic pacing, yet
reminds me at times of iris murdoch novels
(a favorite author of mine) that dabbled much in
philosophical questions in her novels.

Gabrielle I am intrigued, it's been sold out in all the bookstores within my area, either rent or e-book
