Novel Review: Leo the African by Amin Maalouf

Leo the AfricanLeo the African 

by Amin Maalouf

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was assigned this as reading for a university class… and truthfully of all the books, I was dreading this the most. But so far, of all the books, it’s the one I’ve enjoyed the most. It was a brilliantly written story based on the true-life adventures of Hasan Al-Wazzan. It seems even more remarkable coming off the previous assigned reading which I was looking forward to the most but may be one of the worst books I’ve ever read. Anyways, I liked this book so much that when I’m finished with my degree and am back to “reading for pleasure” I will definitely be picking this up again.
