An amazing book a page turner you don't want to put it down. Achraf El Achmawi in this book made me want to jump on a plane and go to Kenya hoping to see Toya's tribe and the lake where she used to meet Youssef. Does the volcano really exist? Did Professor George Randall a real character did he exist in reality? I knew allot about Leprosy before reading the book having visited the leper colony in Egypt years ago. I know how Egyptians mistakenly believe that Leprosy is highly contagious and they ...more

The novel depics the journey of a young British-Egyptian doctor, named Youcef, who seems only interested in the financial revenue of his job. Until, he travels to Kenia, falls in love with a tribal girl, named Toya, miraculously finds the cure of leprosy, and discovers the true meaning of his occupation, which results in a radical change of his personality.

Would I recommend it? Hell no 😒

Adventure Genre with historical background
i liked it being fast-paced adventure,the language is beautiful and the change between places is refreshing.
However,the plot as in terms of change in the hero's character is too predictable with somewhat cliche of the beautiful local girl who act as a medium for transforming her culture to him, also the foreign master who drains the African treasure via a corrupt local is a terrible cliche, but being the case that keeps repeating itself over and over we

The characters are well drawn so is the surroundings description. the storyline itself is good but it needed more tweaking especially the abrupt end. I had a good time reading it but I think it could have been better.
