" A Thousand Obolos Coins "
"A Thousand Obolos Coins" I found this book very entertaining not only as a great Historical book but also as a great suspense thriller. Very well written and thought out. While reading the book I could just picture the place and down to the clothing and jewelry being worn in my mind. Very vivid. Trying to figure out who the killers are will keep you turning the pages. Different culture from the way I was bought up. The girls are promised in marriage not to who they choose to be with. I would think that would be difficult. Was very interesting to learn different ways people in different countries live. The author kept it interesting all the way through to keep you turning pages. This is the first book I have read from Farzana Aqib, but look forward to future books.
