Khalid, the Son of Abraham is a novel written by the author, Mahfouz Fayezi. It was first published in 1999 and is about Khalid’s life in the United States. The novel covers most of his life from childhood to his time in prison.
Fayezi’s writing style is somewhat unique as he usually presents a broad brush strokes for the book, but goes into detail in certain chapters. However, there are instances where he gets bogged down and goes in detail about something that has only a small part in the story. This is one of the few instances where the reader gets caught up in the events and this is quite common with novels by Fayezi, who is a rather slow writer.
The writing style is very easy to follow and one can easily understand the meaning of the words and how the events occurred. There are some portions of the book that was kind of hard to understand but with a bit of effort you can understand what is going on in it. The most important aspect of the book is the content as the rest can be overlooked if it does not relate to the content. This book was recommended to me by a friend and I have to say it definitely meets the mark.
I must admit that I do not have any credentials as a fiction writer, but I still managed to read this book. The book had enough information on the child to satisfy all those who wants to know more about the child and why he committed the crime. A lot of details were given and the events of the crime can still be considered as unsolved crimes.
Despite the controversial subject matter, the book is not really a controversial book. It focuses more on the children rather than the crime itself. However, what you read in the book is up to your discretion and what I mean is you can read it if you so choose.
The book has been widely praised by critics and many people say it is not fiction because it is based on real events. If you are interested in reading the book, you can purchase it from your local bookstore. However, the book is available on online eBook stores at the same price as the regular book.
The book is full of stories of life of Khalid and the other children. You will read about the lives of children who face many challenges in their lives. It gives hope to them and the message is that we can make our lives better by the actions of a single child.
To sum up, the book is not a story of fiction character but it is more of a real life story of one real life person who faces challenges in his life. He had an opportunity to avoid the death penalty but chose to serve the rest of his life in prison. So, he had a story to tell.
