it was amazing

The first half of the book is eventless, but at least it is delightful with the charmingly clumsy, but very eloquent Abdullah. At the middle I started to get bored with the soldier, the wandering, the running away, and altogether the fiddling around.
But then suddenly there is a turn, when Abdullah “challenges fate”, and the story becomes a whirling, magical, humorous adventure with a pinch of romance.

After lots of twists and turns, surprises, and the appropriate amount of coaxing, the ending is really satisfying.

Oh, and I loved the chapter titles!
