Raad Chalabi, author of multiple astounding truth-seeking books, offers readers another intellectually and emotionally overwhelming volume titled The Smiling Owl. Through philosophical grocer—who also happens to be the author’s alter ego—Ramiz Alkhishin, readers will uncover and acquire priceless perceptions of mankind through the mind and words incredibly clever animals.

Ramiz, when asked about what is the most appealing feature of animals, replies “their indifference to what I think and believe”. True to this rather stoic statement, readers will concur, be it entirely or passively, that it is sometimes simpler to let animals assess what humans are, how they think and behave. Perhaps, it is because, they do not disguise their selfishness the way people do. Furthermore, unlike humans, they deal with reality as it is, not as they wish it to be.

This new and noteworthy book probes into the basic nature of man through the vantage point of animals. Through a series of 39 dialogues, each of which is a stand-alone scene, the primitive, gross, and uncultivated character of man is impartially exposed in the vantage point of an impressively shrewd owl and the rest of kingdom animalia. Honest and simple, their descriptions and evaluations of man are weighty enough to demand contemplation.

Chalabi, once again, proves his inimitable dexterity in crafting thought-provoking volumes. Readers will be stunned by the forthright and truthful revelations this book provides. An all at once sly and philosophical book, The Smiling Owl is an eye-opening animal discourse that unveils the raw and denied truth mankind is so keen to suppress.
