5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and thoughtful, 10 Feb. 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: The Caliph's House (Hardcover)
Fed up with the drudgery of British life, author Tahir Shah packs up and leaves with his wife and kids for a new exotic life in Morocco, in the end finding more than he'd originally bargained for. Meanwhile, he delves into the life of his grandfather, an Afghan diplomat, who spent his last years in Tangier.
A great, pacy read which manages to hit numerous important 'bells' along the way: the search for a more 'engaged' life, the current radicalisation of Islam, the importance of never giving up when everything seems to be against you. Shah seems to be a colourful guy living in a colourful country: a perfect, but sometimes explosive combination!
This was the first book of his I've read, after a recommendation from a friend. I shall be looking out for some of his previous titles based on this.
