Writer : Omar Shahid Hamid
I laughed, I cried, but most of the time I was horrified. Shahid has done it again folks. The Spinner’s Tale has a dark and gore narrative, which explains that how social circumstances (injustice, corruption, nepotism and so on) can turn an educated/moderate youth into a horrifying and dehumanized psycho terrorist. At the same the book also attempts to explore other themes like friendship, religious fanaticism, inter/intra-faith grievances and finally, Jihad.
All in all, Shahid’s work proved the fact that,
‘Monsters are not born, they are made’.
Highly recommended to all my fellow Pakistani bookstagrammers and to all those obsessed with terrorism phenomenon.
