F1 Book Club – Round 21 – Abu Dhabi

Yes, I know the front of the book says ‘Dubai;, but the inside cover says the locations are imaginary places “based on the various societies that lived in the region that today makes up the United Arab Emirates and the Musandam Peninsula of Oman.”

So, when I thought about doing the F1 Book Club, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity for me to read ‘Death in Venice’.
