39th Review of Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses   8 comments

I’m excited to share with you the latest Amazon US review of Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses. Of course, I would love it if one of these days the book would catch on and I’d see something other than a flat line in the report of sales. But it’s good for the soul to know that someone else has appreciated it. And I certainly am made happy by Kerstin Volbrecht’s kind words.

This is a beautiful book about love, friendship (a different manifestation of love), spiritual and personal growth, told by means of the story of Dara and Job. The book starts with Dara’s childhood in a nomad tribe, where she is raised with the values of respect, self-consciousness and the acknowledgement of the Other. The story is told as if one is reading a diary of her life, including her reflections about the occurring events and about how things just are.
Although I’m not inclined to the bible or any religion, I take the religious aspects as metaphors and lessons that are to learn.
The characters are described in a very profound manner, making it easy to get familiar with them and understand their reactions and thinking patterns. The way the book is written is very clear and precise.”

Go to amazon to see this review and all 38 previous.

Thanks, Mona

    • Definitely the French! Oh my! I want to travel. I want a leisurely meal like that with friends and special conversation. You’ve made me hungry.

      But let me remind you that the Cheese meal referred to in my title would be quite different. Here’s where the title comes from — on page 50 of the story, in case you don’t remember.

      “Love changes over time. I guess you could say at first it is like feasting on figs and pomegranates and special cheeses, and later it is like enjoying the evening potage. The thrill may not be so great later on, but each day it fills the empty hole that would be hunger if you did not have each other”

      Thanks for commenting

      • @”But let me remind you that the Cheese meal referred to in my title would be quite different.” – yes, of course, Miss Mona, but… my motto would be:”don’t take life(and other temporary stuff!) too serious, as we won’t get out of it alive!” – and, hence the title of my blog… 😉
