Ouch. I was plagued again by ceaseless, restless bed-wandering, a soujourn which I beleive indicates a return to health. I acknowledged the nature of the road around midnight and picked up Autumn of the Phantoms by Yasmina Khadra. N had picked up this slim volume the other day and i read it in two hours. Built along the specifications of the hard-boiled whodunnit, it is a lament for the ongoing civil war in Algeria and its melancholy chief inspector Brahim Llob. Its mood is bleak and there isn't ana ctual case to be solved, but it is worth anyone's time attempting a quick insight into the turbulent seas of present day Algiers.
