Amir Adel Anis’s book reviews

As is always the case with Sabatini, one of the most criminally underrated authors on Earth, this is an excellent historical fiction with a superb cast and a very interesting plot.

I hate spoilers, so I'll mention nothing about the story itself. Just download it and read the first couple of chapters. You'll be hooked. Trust me.

Happy reading.

This is one of the most beautiful fantasy stories I've ever read.

Sanderson's a natural story teller, and he cooks his plots and magic details like a master.

Highly recommended.

Jane Austen's writing skills are stunning. This book proves it. The characters are real, the story is entertaining, and the overall quality of the novel makes it one of the best.
If you haven't read and are still wondering whether you should, I'm telling you, you should...

One of the few books one reads and never forgets. Hardy's work is the correct definition of a classic...

Excellent. Nothing too deep to freak people out, and yet not at all your shallow stars and swords sort of action. This is an intelligent novel from a good--yet not perfect--writer, once you get used to him.

It's fast-paced, lively, thrilling, and most of all entertaining novel of science fiction (with emphasis on fiction) that will surely keep you reading it all in one session. Not the type you read twice, but certainly the type you never regret having read.

Take into your consideration however that this was written in the 1950's.

This is one of the few nightmarish books that have not much "story stuff," but can leave you quite puzzled and startled once you've finished them, trying to understand what is what, and why did who.. etc

But to me, I've never read such a book. Just the first few lines, and I couldn't help finishing the book the same night. The thing that really got me mad was the thoughts of the main character, Gregor.

It's a real nightmare I wish I never go through, especially how it ends. Really as weird as it is loathsome.

Read it at your own peril...
