Book Description

2 Jan 2013
Sufii is a timeless story of the search for true happiness and enlightenment. Weaving an ancient indian parable, set in the deserts of Rajasthan and Egypt, the story follows Hafiz through a journey of life, love and longing. On the way he meets an old Sufi master who attempts to show him the mysteries of life, yet in unconventional ways that test every belief he has about him self and the world. Like the Alchemist, it is a story that can appeal to people of any age and from any culture. Set to be a classic in its own right, Sufi can be enjoyed by any age, culture or religion, as it steps beyond all defined boundaries, pointing to the heart.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great content but needs a proof-reader 11 April 2014
By Robin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If I were going by content alone, this book would have 5 stars. The story is written in lyrical story-teller fashion and with an engaging manner. In addition, Mr Williams raises serious issues;in a society where many have nothing and some so much that it is shameful, are 'Robin Hood' type exploits allowable, or even justified? And again; are most people concerned more with impressing others, with being liked and hiding their own vulnerability, than with truth and justice?

And there are other deeper matters discussed as well.

So why only 3 stars? Because the author has not bothered at all with grammar, spelling or even proof-reading the text. Mine was the Kindle version but the errors seem far more wide-ranging than can be accounted for by transcription. For example, a drawer in a cabinet is consistently spelled "draw"; words are omitted, 'their' becomes 'there', apostrophes appear where they shouldn't and so on and so on.

The story is suitable for children too - but I would never let a child of mine near the book for fear that they would pick up and adopt some of the errors.

If the author could only get the text properly proof-read in a new edition, he'd get 5 stars from me. But he would first need to establish whether the Afterword should really be entitled "Prologue" or whether it actually is an Epilogue!

5.0 out of 5 stars 'A spiritual pearl' 7 Jan 2013
By JoannaO
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As the title promises, Sufi whirls us through bustling market places, ancient customs and forgotten secrets. A significant piece of writing, with beautifully woven segments, each paragraph a delicate gem moving ever forwards towards its goal. Mystical tales and divine poetry thread together to form a guidebook for the new spiritual era.

5.0 out of 5 stars sufi an enlightening tale 21 Dec 2012
By karen
I loved this tale, of course it has more than one level, on the pure story telling it took me to the streets of the middle east to the arabian tales of old, i was there even though reading it on my mobile phone app... timeless.
and a timely reminder of what really matters in life...
I also think this would be a really good short story to read as a bed time story to youngsters too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Condescending and Riddled with Errors 23 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've given up reading at just 20%. This is the first time I've given up on a book in years but I can't read something that clearly wasn't even error-checked in Word. This book needs a lot of work. I also feel I'm being spoken to as if I'm an idiot. Not impressed.
