#ArmchairBEA2014 Beyond The Borders

Armchair BEA

I love going 'beyond the borders' in books. Taking me far away, to another place and sometimes time, showing me how things are elsewhere. From the culture, food and even way of thinking is often different than my own.
The first time I was touched by a book based in another country, I still think about it;
AMAZON
This book shows that not all Muslims are terrorists. Really, the message could not be any clearer. I read it in 2009, when people were quicker to judge Muslims on this side of the world. 

Then I read this one;
AMAZON
This story I will never forget. He was so filled with hate once, and everything people assumed terrorists to be, and then it all changed. A very powerful story indeed. You should really check it out.

Last one that I remember clearly is this one;
AMAZON
This is all about the Jihad, and the best part of it is how the author tells the story. Some of the best writing ever!

I've read more but these are the top ones I could think of. I really love reading outside the box, so-to-speak. It expands my horizons.

  4. I've read a lot of Indian literature, but not so many from Pakistan or Afghanistan - this will help me get started.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
