Book Review
Featuring: Luka and the Fire of Life
by Salman Rushdie

When you love somebody, you most likely will risk your life to save theirs, even if it means putting yourself in danger. Luka, a young boy, struggles to decide if he should save his fathers life. If he does, he knows he will have to go on a very dangerous journey. Beneath this struggle, Luka has to face all the hardships that will lead him to the Fire of Life, were he can get the magical power to save his loved father.
Nobodaddy, the man, or "ghost" that tries to take away Rashids life (Luka's father) by becoming stronger when Rashid gets sick and weaker, and becoming more and more transparent as Rashid gets healthier, is a very complex character. Luka was never sure if Nobodaddy was meant to help or not, by the way he acted. Nobodaddy has many sides to himself, many ways of acting, and it is as if he is on both sides, all sides, or no sides. He is helping Luka but wants Rashid to die.

I recomend this book.
