Sep 29, Usha Alexander rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Anyone who loves a haunting fable built upon deeper themes. Beginning among the shifting dunes and menacing storms of the Sahara Desert between Algeria and Morocco, The Wind Thief is a modern-day fable that takes the reader on a journey across the world and the through the human heart.
The two protagonists, Ajay and Madina, are both troubled youths, each absorbed in a solitary quest.
Ajay, a loner and a pickpocket, seeks a life of material ease in which he is able to support himself through his talent as a drummer. Lost in the desert, he encounters Madina Beginning among the shifting dunes and menacing storms of the Sahara Desert between Algeria and Morocco, The Wind Thief is a modern-day fable that takes the reader on a journey across the world and the through the human heart.
Lost in the desert, he encounters Madina unexpectedly and hopes to use her knowledge of the desert to save himself. At first he finds her only innocent and earnest, vulnerable and childlike, easy to manipulate. But he soon discovers there is a great darkness lurking within her: Since Madina's traumatic childhood, she has been haunted by the voices of spirit-like Winds, and now she follows the signs she believes the Winds give her, urging her to stop the impending end of the world.
Ajay writes off her Winds as delusion.
Yet these two souls, who could not be more different, find connection in their music. As they travel together, they begin to know that their quests are conjoined; they have much to teach each other and learn from each other. Their quest turns inward, as it becomes clear that these two damaged souls are really searching for a deeper human connection, for love, for the sense of being needed. With sensual imagery, Martha Engber paints for us a world eerily populated by a host of mysterious, benevolent, and dangerous Winds.
The reader is torn between wanting to believe in Madina's world of personified Winds, a world of chaos, power, and possibility, and Ajay's concrete world of the here and now, the practical and real. It turns out to be the same choice that Madina must make, and the reader roots for her both ways.
But what it costs Madina is almost everything. This story takes the reader through the discovery of what may be lost or gained by choosing either, and whether it is possible to have it both ways.

From the burning desert to the smothering jungle these two broken people pursue their obsessions What do you get when a thief falls for a hero? From the burning desert to the smothering jungle these two broken people pursue their obsessions and find love and healing along the way.
Having been to both the desert okay, not the Sahara, but a desert none the less and the jungle, I loved the sensory realism of the locales in this book. The scenery was grand and sweeping, but at the same time personal, intimate, and accurate.
