In the Land of the Unknown ....

is my companion tonight

a book by a Kuwaiti Author called Tarek Al-Duaij

i bought it a few months ago, tonight will read it, although i did read 28 pages in the first day i took the book & i have to admit i was hooked

*hooked and it took me all this time to decide & be done with reading it! eshloon if am not hooked??*

i have to admit i had little time + interest in reading the past few months...... however that didn't stop me from buying books at all!! and the list is pilling up......

back to the book......

not only that the stories are exciting, but to try & understand the way the author is writing in & the philosophic message behind each story! is a challenge....

i have to admit the book cover caught my eye first! not noticing the crazy + cool poster that was hanging right there in front of me, was actually to promote the book, i didn't bother to read but laughed on how the poster was like.

it had a picture of some guy's head with an odd expression on his face, as if he is screaming :D but multiplied for a zillion times ;p

in that poster, if my memory doesn't fail me the multiplied pictures of the man's face were in the form of a big swirl ?? pity i didn't take a picture of it & kept browsing in my favorite book place....

not until i got to the Indian cashier who i like so much, such a friendly guy although when you first know him he can be moody! but as time passes by he will be nicer.... I knew who was in that poster!!

he looks at the book & praises the author a lot & says a few nice things about him, and asked if i knew him, i didn't :D but the book looks appealing to me, he didn't recommend the book as much as he again praised the author & pointed out to the poster that was also behind him, the same odd funny poster i noticed before, saying this is Mr. Tarek, a thing that made me smile & like the book even more, and hated the fact of how careless am i to read whats around me!!! and we kept talking for a short while regarding the material i took that day...

pictures & more tomorrow :D inshallah

Note: Patience can be painful, but might spare you a lot of trouble later........ Anxiety isn't helping...... Jealousy isn't too!!
