I am proud of this book. I am georgian and i love this book so much . I am realy happy because foreigh people love this book. Nobody knows who was Shota Rusaveli, some people think that he loved Tamar Mepe . This story is amazing but sometimes i think that this book is big dream of SHOTA RUStAVELI .!!!
