Format: Paperback
I could hardly put this book down. It haunted me when I wasn't reading it, the first time that a novel has had a hypnotic effect on me in a long time. All three main characters are complex, sympathetic, and real. I felt equally absorbed in the story of each one.

It is a pleasure to read about a lesbian character who is fully human and whose sexual orientation is a given. I appreciate that Nasreen struggles with neither internalized homophobia nor intense social discrimination.

I highly recommend this nuanced, insightful, generous, concise, and beautifully-written book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lots of stories have difficulties finding the right tone for the falling action of a plot once the climax has been receieved. the book has a very intense beginning that does keep you at the egde of your seat but, upon wanting more out of the book-as in a actualy lesbian relationship and growing of the characters, i was disappointed.

after the kiss salma gave to nasreen, i felt everything went down and once i scanned through the rest of the book, because it suddenly got to boring to read, i wondered what was the actual story of the book. what was the point? and if anyone can answer that question then that would be great.
