The Map of Love
The Map of Love
Price: £6.02

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable novel. An immersion in the Egyptian rich culture., 1 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Map of Love (Kindle Edition)
Remarkable book. A political novel, really, with an underlying fascinating love story - or the other way around! - shedding light on the British occupation in Egypt and Western politics in the Middle East. The characters are so real that even the reader will feel as being related to them! Very well written, with two parallel stories at 100 years of distance interwoven throughout the narrative. An immersion in the Egyptian culture, the use of words in Egyptian of most common terms and of the expressions in the everyday language of greetings, blessings, praise, reverence, revealing the deep values of this rich culture. I discovered Ahdaf Soueif' s The Map of Love from the suggested reading list at the end of Khaled Hosseini' s The Kite Runner, another remarkable book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful Sufi story, 24 Jan. 2013
Lovely short story full of wisdom that reminds me Herman Hesse' s Siddhartha and Voltaire' s Candide. The search for truth of the young hero and his adventures in the outside world that translate in a inward spiritual journey. The Sufi wisdom shines throughout the book that includes also a couple of beautiful pieces of poetry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction and step-by-step guide to Drush, 30 Dec. 2012
Well written book, with easy-to-follow code examples and screenshots. I just started to learn Linux command line and Drush and, following the book instructions, I have installed a new Drupal 7 site on my remote server only using the terminal and I am already able to do the basic maintenance such as installing modules, clear caches, and put the site in maintenance mode, everything without the need to open the browser! I created my first sample module with Drush and discovered how easy it is to build installation profiles with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent manual to get you started with Drupal 7, 27 Jun. 2012

This review is from: Drupal 7 Manual (Kindle Edition)
Excellent manual to get you started with Drupal 7. Takes you through the whole process of setting up the first website explaining every step in each detail. One problem with the Kindle edition: none of the links to David Ipswich's test site display the path. I found it once by pure chance and then lost it. No search on the Internet could get me there again. Still five stars since the test site is not necessary to follow the manual.
