A book review

I had the pleasure of reading 'The Consequences of Love, a novel by Sulaiman Addonia.

It is a first novel and in my view, it is an excellent one. 

His writing evoked many sights and smells in my mind as I read his words.  His vivid imagery helped me see the streets his character walked on, understand his quest for love in a country where men and women do not mix freely, and the dangers this presents to both the girl and the boy.

I would strongly recommend this first novel especially for those who may be interested in the Wahabi way of life.

It is a novel, but told in such a way, that it is totally believable.
