Another 5 Star Wow for Qaisra Shahraz Dec 20, 2005
Qaisra Shahraz, has once again wowed her readers with her second novel Typhoon and has become one of Britain's leading authors. Typhoon, although not a direct sequel to her previous novel: The Holy Woman, tells the gripping story of three women. Once again Qaisra Shahraz has taken some of the fascinating characters from her earlier book and developed them in a truly excellent way. One character in particular is the proud queen of the village Chaudharani Kaniz. She has become one of the most interesting characters in both books. We thought we knew her well in The Holy Woman it is not until Typhoon that we really understand this wonderful complex woman. Once again Qaisra Shahraz takes us on a wonderful exotic journey opening up the world of Pakistan to both the Western and Asian reader. You don't need to travel to that country because its heat and passion both spring out of the pages of these wonderful books.
enjoyable Sep 23, 2005
I must say that I have really enjoyed this book. Once I started reading it I was not able of stopping. I was interested, just from the beginning, in knowing the end and why of the story. Thanks Qaisra to let me have a nice time through this story. I have already ordered the other book I have seen in this site of this author.
