2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing addition to the TY range, 7 Aug 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Beginner's Urdu Script (TYBS) (Paperback)
I'm sorry to disagree with other users, but whilst this book is adequate as a means of learning to read Urdu, it is not at all helpful in learning how to write. The handwritten examples are sloppy and make it difficult to distinguish between letters such as vau, dal and re. The pen used is too thick and letter forms that should be hollow are filled in and appear as black blobs. Also, little explanation is given about how the letter forms should be arranged in relation to each other in the slanting nasta'liq style chosen for use in the book. When one of the chief aims of the book is to teach people how to write, there should be far more fastidiousness in the presentation of the written examples.
