Bookreview: Master of the Jinn

23 09 2009

Happy Eid to whom it may apply. I know it’s a bit late but I am soooo busy!!!!!!
In a good way!
Ok, to celebrate Eid I have added a new category: ”bookreview”

I’m starting off with the book written by fellow blogger Irving Karchmar, writer, poet and darvish.

master of the Jinn

If you are lucky, you can from time to time get the book for free in Pdf, but I also have brought the book for real, I like reading proper books. It’s available at Amazon.

Master of the Jinn is a gripping story, while it teaches you a lot about the sufi philosophy, and is written in a beautiful poetic style, it also keeps you sitting on the edge of your chair with it’s imaginative and exiting quest.

A mysterious papyrus in a container is found, (in a mysterious manner) which turns out to be sealed by the legendary seal ring of ………, said to give the power of controlling the Jinn.
Following this discovery an unlikely group comes together, becomes friends, and are send out by a modern day sufi master on the quest to find this ancient ring.
But after many adventures the quest leads them further than the world we know….

The quest itself turns out to have a different goal as first thought…

And almost everybody ends up a sufi.

I enjoyed reading this book. It is beautiful and exciting. You can get it from Amazon, or Irving’s website.

I would also second that we should all try to ‘buy’ the book, please. It is VERY hard work to write a book, and near impossible to write a book as good as Master of the Jinn. Irving has done an impossible task and we should all support him by buying the book as a hard copy. I had the offer to get it free as pdf but I still bought the ‘real’ thing.

Loved the book. Every page.

Lat, it is a beautiful book, I think everybody should read it!
I think the world would be a much better place if everybody did think like the sufis in Irving’s book!

Haleem, I can only say: read it! 😉

Irving, I think you spread more sweetness and light as I do! 😀
And I love your book!

Susanne, read it! 😉

Achelois, I should have known you would also have read the book! 🙂
I do prefer a hard copy; sit on the couch with a cuppa tea and just relax!
