Definitely in the top five adventure novels I've read (and I've read lots). Azzam's escapades are everything an adventure should be. The charming, heroic, and sometimes hapless sea & desert voyager Azzam faces thrilling quests and unforgettable adversaries (flaming skeleton crew, anyone?).
I shifted between not being able to stop reading, to slowing down because I didn't want it to end. Is The Amazing Voyage of Azzam an Arabic Indiana Jones? A 9th century Star Trek? An ode to other swashbuckling myths and legends? It's a real nail-biting ride, however you define it!
What are you waiting for, get it!!
