Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I agree the ending is weak--the whole (I think) last chapter.  Thank you for an explanation why.  

Lawrence feel for--and description of--terrain is just amazing.  

An obsessed and eccentric character, one nevertheless gets the impression he is describing Arab culture as it is.  (Or was).  I have nerver encountered another western author who sought to do this.  

(Well, Richard Burton, but I really haven't read much.)  

Modern writers seem determined to perceive nothing.  I won't bother you with references to tedious, self important, egotistical not to say ethnocentric,  . . . well, never mind:  You get the idea . . .

The Fates are kind.
