At last i read this book everyone has been talking about.
Yes, it seems i am the last one on planet earth to read it, and here is what i think:
No doubt it is a good book. Full of wisdom words and spirituality which touches base with anyone (from any religion) because it speaks of common things all religions share (hope, destiny, desires, pleads, faith...etc.).
To me as a Muslim, i was extra hooked because the characters (%80) were Muslims. And thank God they were portrayed in a good way (actually sometimes in a very good way).
I felt soft for the guy who wanted to go to Hajj (the merchant).
Quotes from the book?
Meaning of: "Always follow Omens, listen to your heart and make the best out of beginners luck".
The only part that the book could do without, is the part when the Arab chief requested that the boy (i already forgot the hero's name...lol) was supposed to change into wind. This part was silly and i thought there was no need for it.
I have to say the other part i don't like about this book has nothing to do with the content of the book. Makes no sense, huh??! lol.
I mean the part that annoys me is that this book became Cliche.
Everyone "HAS" to read it and everyone "HAS" to like it. If you don't then you are not cool?!!!!!!!!!!
That's ridiculous besara7a! In Egypt if you didn't read it and like it you are not part of the cool club!
