The Reluctant Fundamentalist

The Reluctant Fundamentalist - Mohsin Hamid The rating on this may be 1 star too high. I'm trying not to let the abrupt ending spoil the entire experience. The main character's voice is done well -- if you can handle lots of dependent clauses and non-restrictive clauses. I fell into the rhythm quickly and plowed through the book in one night. Sadly, the plot is not as satisfying in the last 1/3. The title itself is a bit misleading, but I'll say no more for fear of spoiling. If you enjoy intriguing narrative voices, check this out.
