    Reader Reviews
    Dogs of Malicious Symbols of Socio-political hallmarks, October 24, 2003 Reviewer: A reader from dogs of war, USA The Dogs of War by F. F. is an intricate cultural novel which focuses on the different concepts that underlie politics across the world in a central African location. This book is intricate in all the concepts it deals with, i.e. politics, resource economy and the eclectic types of tribal mercenaries present. All in all, the book is a horrendous yet scrupulous analysis of the complex avarice that is ubiquitous in all socio-cultural hodgepodge novels. The complex metaphorical analysis and connections present in the book allow the reader to better discern the sundry of indelible characters that try to attain the resource-gluttonous needs of every complex society around the world. The platinum rich mountain is more than a unifying symbol of greed unto which all humanity rests its existential and rather materialistic bases on. It is more of a dithering social analysis that percolates through the general needs of our modern world, which depend on such symbols as platinum rich mountains. The incipient technological innovations that come through what we need in our modernistic valued world comes to see the mountain as a complex intertwined mix of different cultural as well as political needs. It therefore becomes the sole possessor of all mind psychology and philosophy, which base their attitudes on the materialism that pervades most of our societies and governments today.! YEAAAA
