*Bella a.k.a A. ^_^

I began reading the inside story of *The Wink of The Mona Lisa* which is also called "the wink of Mona Lisa" during my high school years. It was a great book that interacts different stories from different perspective: from the young generation to the older generation. However it left me with many question to ponder on. I didn’t give it much heed, because am the only one who's brain is pilling up with unanswered questions *giggles*. However when am reading through the posts my dear friends posted especially F. I start to take a step back and recollect my thoughts and conclusion about the book. It is basically a blend of Arabic culture and the reality of life; the writer gracefully caught my attention with his 24 tales from the gulf. Although I admired all of his tales, the last story will still be my favorite.

After reading this story and other stories, I often wondered why do authors in general always write from a women’s perspective, I’ve never read a piece that give's me a glimpse of what a man's perspective in life or general issues? I ask this question & look forward to you feedback

I guess it depends on the material we read, I have to admit that most of the books I read in the past were from a women's point of view because they were romances *shy grin* & I feel men in general like to write about different kind of issues & they won't easily go for the "happily ever after" ending that we girls "seek"...
However, I did realize that with this book some of the stories do give you a glimpse into a man's thoughts, but you are right I wish there was more reading material out there ! Especially from local men ^_^
