AND THE SUN ALWAYS SETS by Danny Odato is an interesting Fiction/Suspense/Romance set in Pakistan.  It is for readers 16 and older. A very compelling, thought-provoking tale of two teens in love with families who do not want them together, each family for their own reasons.  They are thwarted on very corner by society, culture, their parents, deceit, treachery, corruption, and obstacles they find in the modern world, as well as oppression.  Well written, with compelling characters. The storyline is interesting, well thought out, and told with emotion.

Women, have none or very few rights, even in a modern world in Pakistan. The author has captured this, and so much more. While, I had no idea of such tragedy, I  totally understand the turmoil, struggle and discovered so much from just reading “AND THE SUN ALWAYS SETS”.

A suspenseful but romantic tale of two teens,their decision and their destiny. Taking their own fate into their own hands. Love can or will last forever for Mariyum and Faisal. I was in awe at the ending for these two teens. Thought-provoking and very emotional and compelling. A wonderful read. I enjoyed how the author brought so much into the tale of these two teens with his written and the way he told their story. Much emotion involved in this tale. Please, beware, this tale has some very intense moments, with a very intense ending. Well done! Received for an honest review from the author.
