This was the first book I read for Mr. Maalouf. The story is fantastic, and the author is gifted. As a Lebanese immigrant and author, I appreciated the book and enjoyed Mr. Maalouf's style. I strongly recommand to read all of his books. Roy Habib, M.D. author of "lessons in times of war and peace" and "A dream on the lake"
