Another Tomb in Algiers—truly a haunting read. It would have been enough for the book to immerse the reader in the richness of the culture of the late Ottoman period in Algiers; it would have been enough to immerse them in the cadence of the language, the cultural passion, and explosion of colors, scents, and sounds.
But the genius of Another Tomb in Algiers is that these things, fabulous as they are, never overshadow the story. You as a reader are there, and although the tale is set in what most would consider an exotic time and place, you, the reader, can relate to the trials of a young man feeling his way, caring for his friends, and striving so hard to do the right thing, only to be faced with an excruciating moral choice at the end. Then there are Muhamma’s mentors, friends, and antagonists, colorful, yet universal.
Thank you, AJ Lewis, for sharing the era and a subtle but solid hope that heroes like Muhammad are out there still.
All that, and the book also is fun. I for one had a hard time putting it down. It’s definitely a must-read.
Throughout the story, the author successfully builds conflict, rescue, conflict, rescue to make this a page-turner.
A well-written and creative tale.
Love of money drives the plot in this riveting story.
This is a fine story with turn-the-page action … Who wouldn’t want to read further after the first line … ‘What did I, Ettore, know of Algiers when I was swept to sea in the year 1788?
