Nazin was a wonderful poet and in love. However, when the love of his life does not feel the same way, he is left broken and shattered.
Stumbling upon a genie, Nazin wishes the one thing that the genie cannot provide. What will this genie do to help this young man?
Overall, this was an interesting read and reminded me a bit of Aladdin. A big difference though, Jasmine from Aladdin is amazing, while Nazin’s love interest here is shallow and I can’t understand what he sees in her.
Being a less than twenty-page book, it is hard to go into too many details without giving the plot away. Nazin is likable, aside from the obsessive love he has for a woman who won’t return it. The genie is also likable and seems like he genuinely wants to help Nazin.
The ending was extremely interesting and left me hanging. I can make my own conclusions as to what happened, but I kind of wanted a confirmation.
