It is a very well written book that captures you and doesn t let you go till the last page The story is flowing like sand dunes in Sahara but the ending is somehow shocking I d recommend this book to all of those who want to broaden the cultural borders It shows that sometimes people who can t read or write, who don t know what is a building or a train still are very cunning and creative in their mind Different doesn t mean bad or stupid Anyway, give it a try. I am kind of torn between like it and not really like it It started very well, very authentic, as far as I could say, but on the way these elements kind of got lost The end is absurd from the character evolution point of view, if you ask me I have nothing against absurd ends, I even like them, as they only show how our own lives can get really meaningless, but this one is just inconsistent Or maybe I just don t get the logic of the novel I guess he intended to say that old ways are obsolete I am kind of torn between like it and not really like it It started very well, very authentic, as

and the desert people should reconsider thiswell, I think the character was stronger than the author as I really don t think the novel succeeded in convincing me of that, and so, final turn of events looks to me just like the author s arbitrary choice I do not think that a real tuareg, as Gacel seemed to be, would have done all those Then again, what do I know What a surprise As I was studying spanish, I bought some top rated spanish written books Touareg was one of them I never heard about the book, or the author, but I was surprisedGood narrative, including an interesting overview of saharian culture. 4.5 starsReview to come I think, overall, this book deserves a five Though the ending is controversial, I think, and I personally resent it, the Tuareg warrior, Gacel, is so masterly defined, its skills and adaptation to the harsh land he lives in so compellingly described, that through him mostly the author built a book that stuck with me through decades It s one of those books I never forgot As for the ending, without spoiling it none, I can say that some will find it amazing, a twist of a master, and others will I think, overall, this book deserves a five Though the ending

different ending, but like I said before it doesn t take the shine off the magnificent portrait of the Tuareg warrior and the blend he has with his ancient home I recommend it for sure It was a really enjoyable reading I learned many interesting things about Tuareg and related cultures The character and plot development were very professional I never felt any boredom However, I give 4 stars not 5, just because from the very beginning I hadexpectations Onething if you have your piece from romanticism regarded fiction reading, this book will be really engaging and emotional, if you don t, then it is just narration or plot If you decide to read this book, bear It was a really enjoyable reading I learned many interesting things about Tuareg and related cultures The character and plot development

outcomes of the book One of Gazel s guests is murdered, and so he must fight to fix the wrongs according to his ancestor s ways His journey takes him from the middle of the Sahara Desert to a wasteland from which no one returns to a foreign city beside the sea In this story, tradition clashes with the modern life as good intentions clash with corruption Upholding either law only seems to add to the chaos of Gazel s solitary war.Gazel is a hero with a flaw, which of course makes this story a tragedy He has a lot One of Gazel s guests is murdered, and so he must fight to fix the wrongs according to his ancestor s ways His journey takes him from the middle of the Sahara Desert to a wasteland from which no one returns to a foreign city beside the sea In this story, tradition clashes with the modern life as good intentions clash with corruption Upholding either law only seems to add to the chaos of Gazel s solitary war.Gazel is a hero with a flaw, which of course makes this story a tragedy He has a lot of persistence and resourceful skills His presence makes the book fun to read The other characters definitely add to the color of the story There are Gazel s foil, the ultimate bad guy, the nice guy just following orders, and then pawns of the military Ultimately, independence and remaining faithful to your values permeates this story I don t necessarily agree with the treatment of some of the characters, but that s probably because I m not used to the Tuaregs culture The story was translated from Spanish, but it s still well written It flows very well, but unfortunately, it doesn t have any chapter markers Every now and then, there are breaks in between the storyline and perspective changes Some of the perspective changes are confusing because the chapter starts with he rather than a name Grammar mistakes can be found in the book there are a few missing verbs and common problems.I found this book on Goodreads and downloaded a PDF version I hate the moment when I read a really good book and I can not find the suitable words to review it It was magic definitely A great story full of beautiful details, and such great events that surprisingly can change your anticipated mood And then epically ended with a tragedy Brilliant Worth every hour of reading such a legend Highly Recommended Incredible book, I literally could not put it down Great insight into one of the most mysterious cultures and a page turner at the same time The book teaches us about essentials in life, about extreme non consumerism and about values, maybe contradictory but still very rare in the modern world
