I read this for a book group - probably would not have chosen it on my own. It can be read on many levels -- from a simple suspense story to a political commentary. I found it hard to put down, but disturbing at the same time. The writing style is very unique -- the entire book is a one-sided dialogue between the main character (Changez) and an American stranger he encounters. It's told first person as if Changez were talking to the stranger -- but you never "hear" the other side of the conversation. Very different than any other book I've read!
It started out strong, but faultered at the end. I was just glad to be done with it, so I could move on to the next book. I hope they never make a movie out of this one. The suthor's style was good, but by the end, I really didn't give a crap what happened to him or his weird ass family.
