I want to read this book: "In the Service of the Sultan"

I want to read Ian Gardinar's account of the war in Dhofar. I like war stories (my family has more than 1 or 2 soldiers) and think Oman TV (yeah right people say now) should make movies or series about things like this. This book would BE PERFECT for a movie or series. Anyways....

I almost bought it at the airport (which is more expensive than anywhere else). But I waited. So next paycheck, I am purchasing it.

That's fascinating that you wrote about this book. I was going to post a similar blogpost titled "A book I have been wanting to read for quite some time!" for the exact same book! Well, my trip down to Salalah solidified my plans and I actually purchased it. I've only browsed through it but it looks like it's going to be an awesome read. Expect a book review on this soon! :-)

Doesn't it look interesting?

How much did you pay for it?

Can't wait for the review. Hopefully I'll read it around the same time.

Oman NEEDS a library, lol.

Where can I find the book? in Muscat or Salalah

Nadia: The airport in Muscat stocks it, so does the publisher. And you can buy it on Amazon books if you search it on the net.

I don't know about Salalah.

I got the book at WHSmith in Al Shatti Qurum, Muscat, for 16.2 rials. I think it was 18 at the airport.
