The Lone Leopard by Sharifullah Dorani (Book Review #1404)


‘The Lone Leopard’ is a historical fiction set in 1992, beginning with Ahmad, a 15-year-old traditional Pashtun, and Frishta, a 16-year-old women’s rights activist who is well outspoken.

They both meet in a very odd situation and soon becomes friends, but their conflicts of upbringing and differences in belief cause the drift between them. The truth, however, lies between the two, which is far more than just a love story.

The book may not have had the best cover design to represent its content, but the interior was well put together and written in a pleasing way.

I found the story thought-provoking and engaging. The characters pulled the story together, and the dynamic between the two main characters meshed well.

I recommend this book to historical fiction readers.
