My Review:

The Secret of Hawthorne House turned out to be just the book I needed. I have been reading a lot of Urban Fantasy and Dark existential books so I needed something light, spooky and yet a story that is soulful for a change. TSoHH did good on that account.
The book did creep me out at times because who mentions scary murder story to a stranger on a school bus? But then again, I let many instances skip because middle school kids and their curiosities are something I am familiar with. Continue reading

About this book:

Mimadamos revolves around an ancient triangle of the most significant characters on earth, paralleled by three of the most significant forces in life, and their combined story in space and time. Journey through this fable and explore the ideas that have mystified mankind for centuries: good and evil, heaven and hell, the beginning and end of the world.

Did the ending precede the beginning? Are we only here on earth to comprehend its machinations? Is there room for choice to shape our destiny in the wake of fate and its brutal logic? Mimadamos is a unique, philosophically-rich fantasy which journeys through the depths of conflict and harmony that we understand as the spirit. It decodes the magic of the most ancient scripts known to man, the symbolic fall from Eden and the long anticipated armageddon, revealing a logic so unique that it brings history to its conclusive end.

My Review:

Mimadamos: The Eden of Choice by Chadi B Ghaith is a unique book for sure. The matters that this book deals with in abstract form and deep existentialist thought could have only made a book lengthy and boring if not for the author’s compelling narrative. The book lacks much dialogue and it did feel that some parts were dragged on but I felt like I was reading a more entertaining version of Albert Camus while reading this book. Continue reading
