I have just finished ZAHIR.

 

I was very impressed. I finished the book in one sitting (although a short story this is unusual for me). I’ve always wondered where good writing comes from.  I’ve always believed that to be a successful writer one needs not only to understand oneself but to have an understanding of the human condition. The story was well crafted and I was totally immersed in the plight of your characters. I was horrified and enthralled at the same time. I was hoping that at least someone survived but then quickly realised that there was only one possible ending.  Your mastery of language was a joy and generated a level of imagery which no film could match.

 

I look forward to reading Light from a Distant Star soon.
