Read ñ Les Jardins de lumière É PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Une nouvelle vision du monde profondément humaniste et si audacieuse u'elle allait faire l'objet d'une persécution inlassable de la part de toutes les religions et de tous les empires Pouruoi un tel acharnement uelles barrières sacrées Mani avait il bousculées uels interdits avait il pour faire r. The Gardens of Light tells of the prophetsage Mani who lived in the third century adThe story follows Mani s life from his birth to his torturous death The book centers on Mani but it also gives a great historical view of the Sassanid empire during that time I especially loved the little gems of historical information on both the Sassanid and Roman empire Maalouf has dropped in to this storyIt does tend to be of a historical book than a novel as Maalouf likes to stay true to the original story witout adding any great embellishments However this does not mean that the book is too dry as Maalouf s biggest strength is that he can make any historical figure come alive Giving them real depth in character and emotions
