  • [Around the World challenge: Oman] This book takes place in a little village where people have too much time on their hands and use it to intrigue against each other. I liked the atmosphere, and the opposition between the conservative older villagers and the more progressive youth. There were too many points of views for my taste though, it made the plot sometimes difficult to follow and it was harder to get attached to the characters while spending so little time with them.
