In the beginning of March, I've hinted that I am going to launch another feature which I have confessed that I am most excited about... and this is it. I have reached out to some bookish friends to grace this feature and most of them did agree. And so, every month we will get to read a book review from a non-blogging friend who I believe have great things to share about a book he/she read. And who best open this feature than my good friend and Neighbor, Emir Gamis.
A Necessary Encounter
“Then still shaking, I got up and walked over to that vase again, with, I think, the sensible intention of picking it up and smashing it on the floor, on the green tiles of that floor, and this time the path I traced toward the object of my terror was not spiral but a straight line, admittedly rather hesitant, but straight nevertheless. And when I was a few feet from the vase, I stopped again and said to myself: If it isn't Hell in there, it’s nightmares, and all that is lost, all that causes pain and is better forgotten.”
Emir: I have no particular genre preference. I read based on what I find and what other people, mainly friends, recommend, directly or indirectly.
Emir: I'd say I'm moody. I read depending on what I fancy at the moment. Ditto my take on what I had finished reading. I could be generous or exacting, all depending on my state of mind or emotion. Makes me utterly unreliable in my reviews and invalidates me from writing in your blog, so I take the bit back.
