300 passengers. One plane. One bomb. One switch. One Omar Farouk to set it all aflame!
Welcome to the fast moving world of advanced terrorism where Jihadists in Oman or Afghanistan can blow up buses, trains, and planes in New York, Madrid, or London-without even going there.
This is not the world of the future; it is our world as it is!
A world unpredictable, unforgiving, and deadly!
I was actually approached by the author himself through my blog to see if I would be interested in reading a copy of his book in exchange for an honest review.
I don’t mind admitting I was a bit sceptical to whether or not it would be something I would be interested in reading but after reading the description and some other reviews I thought I would give it a go.
Bomber Boy is a short story which was originally intended for a magazine. I have read many books where terrorism features as the main storyline but I have never read a book which has been from the prospective of a terrorist. Saying this though I don’t think the main character, Farouk is fully committed to the idea either. There are parts of the book which I found to be quite humorous and later on ironic. Even though terrorism is something certainly not meant to be taken lightly I think the author is trying to give a slightly different approach to the subject.
Overall it is an enthralling read though slightly let down by the ending but I certainly would recommend this book to fellow readers and I would certainly read more by the author.
