A fictional story, 'The Young Explorer's Adventures in Makkah' is also a great example of ummah support. It received laudable help to either edit, illustrate the book, and even publish it.
What I most appreciated about it was the truth and opinions that mirrored my own; the holy sites shouldn't have been destroyed or neglected in the KSA so they could become forgotten. Visiting these places don't equal shirk but hey what do I know? I'm not a scholar. Allahu Alim.
What I hope the author can improve is the style of narration insha'Allah. There is quite a lot of telling and sometimes it felt like info dump. There was not a lot of showing. A story should roughly be about 75% showing and 25% telling. Another thing is the vocabulary. A glossary of non-English words at the end of the book would make a less distracting read in my opinion plus a uniform way of spelling Arabic words. For instance, we have Jabal Thur and Jabal Thawr. And there are not in the same sentence or paragraph to tell the reader that people can spell it differently.
There were also a lot of characters who got me confused at one point. A Character List would be a good addition in upcoming editions.
'The Young Explorer's Adventures in Makkah' is a good educational read overall.
