Best book ever!
What a story! What a journey! I love how it all comes together. So humorous, such fantastic and clever storytelling, you surely don't realize this is a first time author. What an epic adventure! You really can't help but get immersed in this extraordinary journey.
Aja, the fakir, is so interesting and more unique than any other character I have read about before. Really, at the end, I wanted more. Though the story opened, flowed and closed perfectly, I could keep reading day in and out.
Romain Puértolas is a genius storyteller and frankly, a new favorite of mine.
I now NEED a copy of The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared. I strongly suggest you start reading his books too!
