Fascinating as a document, less good as a novel Interesting to contrast the political ideas put forward by the Socratic dialoguesque sections of the book and the drastically different practices of the author.Would recommend. Just don t One of the four novels ever written by Saddam Husein i ve got one entitled translated into Evil Dance which was interesting to put politics into a novel heu5.. A story about the relationship between a king and a peasant woman, her attempts to change the living conditions of her people while influencing her king s heart.The author supposedly Saddam himself could have done so much better The book becomes a dialog and a kind of philosophical and political debate, where a kind of democratic way of life is defended Some parts are really dull and the narrative just has a few moments where it seems to go forward. An amazing novel by a great leader It s a touching story and Saddam was a well read educated person who could touch deeply into human emotions What a pity the bastards bush and blair executed this leader and robbed Iraq of its riches and oil RIP Saddam Though at times eloquent and expressive, the term that most accurately describes Saddam Hussein s allegorical love story though that categorization itself can easily be challenged is dense Its characters are philosophical and introspective, and while there is a romance between Zabiba, a common woman and Arab, the king, they both arelikely to be having socio political discussions than to be doing anything traditionally romantic The repeated visits between the two feel like Sheharazad s Though at times eloquent and expressive, the term that most accurately describes Saddam Hussein s allegorical love story though that categorization itself can easily be challenged is dense Its characters are philosophical and introspective, and while there is a romance between Zabiba, a common woman and Arab, the king, they both arelikely to be having socio political discussions than to be doing anything traditionally romantic The repeated visits between the two feel like Sheharazad s ritual storytelling in their ritualistic constancy, substituting of course their public minded discussion for folk stories and legends, and the motivation of love rather than to save one s life Theirs is a cerebral love that at times veers close to being unconvincing, but in the moments when the characters connect on some idea or important distinction, there is a definite sincerity of feeling Perhaps the most surprising thing is that the two are clearly equals in their relationship, as the book takes pains to point outthan once Was this Saddam s ideal relationship, one that unites soul, mind, heart and body, as he describes in the text Altogether this is not what one would expect from such a demonized dictator though I would definitely say that the end product is rather challenging and at times stifling At least by Western standards, it s hard to say Saddam has acheived a literary milestone But that doesn t mean his novel isn t interesting |Free Book ♾ Zabiba and the King ♂ WHAT IS IT ABOUT Zabiba and the King is an allegorical love story between a mighty king Saddam and a simple, yet beautiful commoner named Zabiba the Iraqi people Zabiba is married to a cruel and unloving husband the United States who forces himself upon her against her will This act of rape is compared to the United States invasion of Iraq DOES SADDAM HUSSEIN RECEIVE ANY MONEY FOR THIS BOOK Not a dime The translation is owned by the editor WHY TRANSLATE THIS BOOK The editor, an American businessman, had the book translated into English to satisfy his own curiosity He also felt it would be interesting and a beneficial tool for the curious, the patriotic, the educator, the historian, etc as well as for the friends and families of servicemen serving in Iraq The publisher, a strong supporter of US troops, felt the book was an interesting read While the allegory is controversial and, at times, unsettling, it gives the reader an opportunity to play detective and attempt to decipher any hidden meanings WHAT IS THE SETTING The stomping grounds of a young Saddam Hussein near Tikrit, Iraq WHAT IS THE TIME PERIOD The era of the story is the mids to earlys AD due to the clue the main character, Zabiba, is a devout follower of Islam, yet the king still worships the idols of his forefathers and is ignorant of some of the fundamental traditions of the Islamic faith DID SADDAM HUSSEIN REALLY WRITE THE NOVEL While it is no secret that the release of this book in Arabic was an overnight best seller in Iraq and even became an on stage musical production in Baghdad, the book promotes the establishment of a quasi democratic form of government that the editor and others believe would not have been allowed to be published in Iraq unless Saddam were intimately involved in its creation Many Iraqis firmly believe it was penned by Saddam Hussein I didn t get too far in this one There is some question on whether or not this book was actually written by Saddam Hussein I am inclined to think it was because a ghost writer would have probably written a better book.
