Book Review-And The Sun Always Sets-Danny Odato

Monday, June 16, 2014


I am going to start this review with part of the courtesy interview I was sent by Outskirtspress.

"What is your book about?

Its about two teens in love who try to get married but the society has their own mentality and cult against liberation, therefore soon they discover deceit, and more obstacles then they imagined, and they soon discover that it may not be their destiny to live by their own decisions in this modern world.

Why did you decide to write it?

To send a message to the world, in what condition women in this country are living and how they are treated.

What is special about your book? What differentiates it from other books in the same catagory?

My book talks about the real life these people are living in. It shows in tangent detail how hard it is to have rights if any, for women. It shows the undisputed leadership of the macho man regardless of his leadership quality. It shows the raw life of humans who are treated like animals."

Do you plan to publish more?

Yes, I am coming up with a few other books which are really pieces of art always with the same goal in mind which is Women's rights.


I have read and reviewed two other of Danny Odato's books- The Witches Revenge and The Evil Is In The Ice. Both are very good books--But I really think he has outdone himself with And the Sun Always Sets.

It is again a short book but very much to the point--there are women around the world who are still treated as second class citizens. It reads almost like Romeo & Juliet those star crossed lovers. I REALLY think that any woman (or men who love them) should read this book-it is an eye opener. It is difficult to believe that this still goes on in our world today. 10 Stars!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

The World Indifferent Is Watching

Mariyum tells the story of her life in a small Pakistani village, of her love of books and learning, and the challenges of living with a father who has given up on his family’s future. But the harsh reality of her world suddenly emerges, and she and her soul mate, Faisal, must embark on a journey to escape the corruption and oppression of their community—to live by their own merits and on their own terms.

Their path is full of treachery, deceit, and more obstacles than they imagined, and they soon discover that it may not be their destiny to live by their own decisions in this modern world. In And the Sun Always Sets, a suspenseful and romantic tale, Mariyum and Faisal eventually decide to take desperate measures in order to be together…no matter what the cost.

About the Author: (from the back of the book)


Danny Odato was born in 1953, the youngest of a family of seven, in the small town of Controne, Salerno, south of Naples. His passion for writing stems from his early education in a Franciscan momnastery, which was stocked with a collection of handwritten manuscripts, some hundreds of years old. He was drawn to a deeper education in philosophy and literature and began writing in his native Italian. Today, Danny's talent is at its peak. He credits his seond wife for giving him the inspiration and encouragement to continue writing, which has led to his most exciting stories, including his most recent novel, The Witch's Revenge.

It's hard to believe that some of the things that go on in the world these days still do, so this book sounds like one that would get me all fired up!

Jessica said...

This sounds like an interesting, unique read. I'm for anything that points out, and hopefully works towards making a change, in the rights (or lack thereof) of women.

Sounds like an eye opening read...very tough to accept that there are still so many that don't enjoy the freedom we do.

Against all odds love stories teaches a lot of life lessons!

This sounds like an amazing book. I would love to read how this woman rises above and escapes the mistreatment women of her culture are put threw.

Athena Nagel said...

It is always so interesting reading about other cultures - the good and the bad. We often forget just how lucky we are to have been born in the US.

Lame Shrill Owl said...

Several members of my book club love to read just these types of culture type books, I will tell them about this one when we meet tonight.

Becka M said...

I really like the concept and look forward to reading it.

Rebecca Swenor said...

It is a shame for some woman to have to go through what they do now days. This is a great cause why the author wrote this book. Sounds like a great read. Thanks for sharing.

I like that you included the interview questions. I love to know why an author chose to write a book!

Carla WorkingMommyJournal said...

I love books like this and the fact that some of it holds true in real life is shocking and eye opening. Love teh way you opened the review it gives a great insight to the book!

mail4rosey said...

It sounds like an emotionally intense story. That's the best kind for a book. Thank you for sharing!

Theresa Mahoney said...

I like books like this that open your eyes to what people in other parts of the world have to endure. I do hope this book is able to help spark some kind of change, as everyone should be treated as equals.

Jenn said...

I love books like this to change how you see about other places in the world.

LeahSay - Bonnie said...

Sounds like an interesting read. Yes, I agree women have come a long way in the past 200 years, however we still have a LONG way to go. Compassion, common sense and moral values seemed to have left our younger generation.

Kung Phoo said...

Treating women as a second class is really old school.. people should really get into the new century... sounds like a good book.

Elayna Fernandez-Bare said...

I love this kind of initiative and motivation. I believe that we were given freedom of choice or free will, as others call it. No one oughta be telling us whom to marry or how to act, or what to love. That is not a tradition, it is an abomination.

This book looks beautiful...
love conquer all...
this is the kinds of book I want to read...

Teresa McCluskey said...

This book sounds amazing, the kinda book I would take with me to the beach sit back and read!

Kristen Campbell said...

Sounds like a great one! I love when men are so moved by women's issues that they write about them - it somehow makes it mean more!

Angel said...

Sounds like an interesting story. I hope they were able to get married and live happily in the story! :)
