    Absolute genius A Chronicle of Amends offers a solution to the continuous question what s the point In this debut, Tariq Saleim has created a collection in four parts poetry, reflections, a novella, and finally notes and probes The poetry beautifully illustrates how complex and unreliable human thoughts and emotions can be Likewise, his reflections, notes, and probes are thought provoking and lack nothing short of depth The questions brought forth are likely those that will stick with you Absolute genius A Chronicle of Amends offers a solution to the continuous question what s the point In this debut, Tariq Saleim has created a collection in four parts poetry, reflections, a novella, and finally notes and probes The poetry beautifully illustrates how complex and unreliable human thoughts and emotions can be Likewise, his reflections, notes, and probes are thought provoking and lack nothing short of depth The questions brought forth are likely those that will stick with you and impose reflection The novella component, however, is most compelling The novella begins with the author illustrating an attack, one that he was unfortunately in the midst of While in a country, not his own, to do some good he remembers, an invisible force pushed me forward into the wall After this horrific event, the author reflects throughout the story of his mentor and friend, AA, whom was lost that fateful day The story dives into the subject of God, yet not in relation to a cookie cuter religion rather, in the sense of God being the all powerful source of creation and wisdom above anyone s meager understanding The author claims it is almost criminally na ve to deny the existence of God after he speaks of his spiritual journey and asserts that to deny God s existence is to deny any meaningful reason for your own existence In reading this work, one will likely find it difficult to argue this point A lot of questions remain for the reader to think about This is a story that will likely shake your personal philosophy and beliefs while coming to the realization that life isn t about us, and was never intended to be easy.Overall, A Chronicle of Amends is an extremely fulfilling read and presumably fitting for members of all faiths although the author is Muslim This collection is deserving of a space on any bookshelf and shouldn t be overlooked by anyone looking to better understand God, life, and where that sense of purpose comes from Fans of Mitch Albom and Yann Martel will likely appreciate Saleim s work and may consider itfulfilling in many aspects An engaging, well written, autobiographical collection written with sincerity

    Disclaimer I received this book as part of a Goodreads first reads giveaway.A Chronicle of Amends is basically four different books in one As such, I will review each section independently.Book one is Poetry While I may occasionally find meaning in poetry, it is not really my preferred literary method I read the first three poems, but couldn t get into them, so I just skipped this section.Book two is Reflections This section is comprised of simple one liners and short notes, or reflections, Disclaimer I received this book as part of a Goodreads first reads giveaway.A Chronicle of Amends is basically four different books in one As such, I will review each section independently.Book one is Poetry While I may occasionally find meaning in poetry, it is not really my preferred literary method I read the first three poems, but couldn t get into them, so I just skipped this section.Book two is Reflections This section is comprised of simple one liners and short notes, or reflections, on life While some may not be new to most readers, they are interesting This section can be read through very quickly.Book three is Novella An interesting read in that it is written from a first person perspective as though the events are actually someone s story, but it is fiction.Book four is Notes and Probes This section isphilosophical in nature and my favorite section of the book While my spiritual beliefs are different from the author s, I whole heartedly agreed with some of the points he made in this section, particularly that religious tolerance is important.Overall it was an enjoyable read, but not exceptional It is labeled as a spiritual journey for discovering life s true purpose What it delivers is the authors view on the meaning of life, and depending how much it lines up with your views will probably determine how much you like it

    This book is both brilliant and incorrectly formatted It needed to start with the novella and be followed by the notes The first half is superfluous, however gifted the verses may be.The novella deals with a guy named AA who was hurt in a bomb blast in an unnamed Middle Eastern country The narrator explains how AA changed his complete modus operandi in life, how AA decided to lose his wealth and become a person.If that is not intriguing enough, then after the novella the reader may dive into This book is both brilliant and incorrectly formatted It needed to start with the novella and be followed by the notes The first half is superfluous, however gifted the verses may be.The novella deals with a guy named AA who was hurt in a bomb blast in an unnamed Middle Eastern country The narrator explains how AA changed his complete modus operandi in life, how AA decided to lose his wealth and become a person.If that is not intriguing enough, then after the novella the reader may dive into the Notes, which explain from a completely reasonable God believing perspective why Muslims do not convert to Christianity when Christian prayers are answered, and why Christians do not convert to Islam when Muslim prayers are answered For the second half of A Chronicle of Amends, I applaud so heartily my hat falls off And everyone knows I wear one.Mashallah.Peace

    I have won this book through Goodreads first reads giveaway The book is written in four parts Poems some interesting concepts there however I found them a little repetitive Reflections random one liner thoughts on life Novella not a bad plot though the story wasn t developed well enough for my liking Notes Probes I found the most interesting and varied.Before I started to read the book and having read the description, I was expecting an exploration of spirituality in broader terms I have won this book through Goodreads first reads giveaway The book is written in four parts Poems some interesting concepts there however I found them a little repetitive Reflections random one liner thoughts on life Novella not a bad plot though the story wasn t developed well enough for my liking Notes Probes I found the most interesting and varied.Before I started to read the book and having read the description, I was expecting an exploration of spirituality in broader terms, away from religion specifically I was a little disappointed that all parts of the book concentrated heavily on the author s own faith and that the moral of every story was believe in God or there s no point in living an honest life May as well lie, kill, cheat and steal because atheists obviously have no morals
