Overview

Khaled stood in the third heaven, which is the heaven of precious stones, and of Asrael, the angel of Death. In the midst of the light shed by the fruit of the trees Asrael himself is sitting, and will sit until the day of the resurrection from the dead, writing in his book the names of those who are to be born, and blotting out the names of those who have lived their years and must die. Each of the trees has seventy thousand branches, each branch bears seventy thousand fruits, each fruit is composed of seventy thousand diamonds, rubies, emeralds, carbuncles, jacinths, and other precious stones. The stature and proportions of Asrael are so great that his eyes are seventy thousand days' journey apart, the one from the other.

    Text is readable, but this is a Google-digitzation of a copy from the holdings of the NY Public Library. The formatting is whimsical and there are many garbles and artifacts from the digitization.

    SO glad I took a chance on this title!

    I actually bought this as a hard cover book first, an antique at a flea market. I was intrigued by the title as I like to read about exotic places. This turned out to be such a fun book; it has a fantasy fairytale quality with out being juvenile. It has adventure, romance and it is so beautifully written. The dialogue between the main characters is amazing and gets you thinking about life and love but I promise it is NOT a "romance" novel! I bought the NOOK version so I could reread the book; mine is so old it is falling apart. I will be trying other titles by this author.
