By Ibrahim al-Koni
The Scarecrow is the ultimate quantity of Ibrahim al-Koni's Oasis trilogy, which chronicles the founding, flourishing, and decline of a Saharan oasis. Fittingly, this continuation of a story of greed and corruption opens with a gathering of the conspirators who assassinated the community's chief on the finish of the former novel, The Puppet. They punished him for opposing using gold in company transactions—a symptom of a severe holiday with their nomadic past—and now they have to look for a pace-setter who stocks their fetishistic love of gold. A wilderness retreat conjures up the crowd to pick a pacesetter at random, yet their "choice," it sounds as if, isn't really solely human. This interloper from the spirit international proves a self-righteous despot, whose intolerance of humanity presages catastrophe for an oasis besieged through a world alliance. although al-Koni has many times under pressure that he's now not a political writer, readers might even see parallels not just to a former Libyan ruler yet to different tyrants—past and present—who look as hole as a scarecrow.
