I can never tell if this book's story is set in the author's home country of Pakistan or in what I perceive to be "rising Asia" -Eastern Asia. I assume it to be the former.
I didn't like this one quite as much as "the reluctant fundamentalist" though they both have a similar quality. I get the sense the quality is that they feel like they are intended for an American audience to get a grasp on what it is like for others in our world. I said earlier "an average human" because I think us Americans don't often understand what an average human is like. We represent only 250 million of this world of 6+ billion people. In my experience of living abroad, this gets at the average human as i understand it.
I liked that the book seemed to have a grasp on real humanity. Hamid stays near the details of life and doesn't overhype any of it. I listened to the audiobook of hamid's reading of it and though his voice bordered on monotone, I think it was actually quite helpful.
The author, M. Hamid, is quite young, (compared to me). How does he know so much about life? Why did it take me so long to learn what Hamid knows and is able to write about? Let me remind you again: Mr. Hamid is not the cynic he appears to be. As you read the book, you will find Mr. Hamid in love with life, though he expresses himself in a most unlikely way. Read the book, be prepared to laugh and to cry. Do enjoy Hamid's latest book. NanS
