Pride of Baghdad – Book Introduction

Pride of Baghdad is a fiction novel by a famous novelist Brian Vaughan about four lions that escaped the Baghdad zoo during the 2003 bombing of Baghdad. The lions’ roaming of the city for sometime before American soldiers gunned them down, attempts to portray the life in the city of Baghdad during wartime. Although a fiction novel, numerous narratives are based on real time stories in Iraq.

The theme of the story is based on freedom and analyzes the topic in the eyes of the lions roaming the dangerous environment after being freed rather than being captive and caged safely.

This book seems to have been written for elderly teens and is a comical and graphic depiction of the life in Baghdad in the post-Saddam era.

    Alhamdulillah! Jazakallaahu bilkhayr for finding a link in Iqra that I was able to share it with friends both muslims and non-muslims. an woman office-mate is already learning to understand Islam, she told me that this is a perfect religion. i gave her articles from iqra and she wanted to read more of the Qur-an with English transliteration and translation. hope iqra can download me a free copy. Shukran. wassalam
