    On a flight back to US from India, about half an hour was left to land in San Francisco, everyone was asleep, when we heard the captain speaking over the intercom All I heard was something about how we were about to land in Japan In my sleepy state I assumed that something was wrong with the plane and was about to panic when my husband told me the rest of the captain s message Apparently we were denied entry into United States because a passenger was on their no fly list.On landing in Japan, On a flight back to US from India, about half an hour was left to land in San Francisco, everyone was asleep, when we heard the captain speaking over the intercom All I heard was something about how we were about to land in Japan In my sleepy state I assumed that something was wrong with the plane and was about to panic when my husband told me the rest of the captain s message Apparently we were denied entry into United States because a passenger was on their no fly list.On landing in Japan, as we all emptied the plane, I saw a family of about 6 a young boy, bearded, about 20, and women of different ages wea...

    A real bowl of literary prawn crackers you eat and eat and they taste of nothing, they re entirely synthetic, like a form of extruded plastic, but you can t stop and then you realise the whole bowl is gone and what was that all about This is not a good book and yet it was compelling, I can t deny it, a smooth, snaky insinuating monologue which in retrospect and often in real time spect is a ridiculous tissue of allegory, you ve seen all this in other reviews but it s all horribly true our r A real bowl of literary prawn crackers you eat and eat and they taste of nothing...

    In one sustained monologue, a young Pakistani named Changez relates his life story to an unidentified American man in a cafe in the city of Lahore Changez, a Princeton graduate who once worked as an analyst for a Manhattan financial firm, tells us how his optimistic view of America began to darken in the aftermath of 9 11 I liked this book for its elegant style and outsider s viewpoint, but my favorite part of it is the mysterious relationship between the narrator and his American listener Te In one sustained monologue, a young Pakistani named Changez relates his life story to an un...

    Nine Reasons To Read This One Because it s short, yet evocative a relief at a time when authors needlessly pile on the pages.Because it s hard enough to sustain a distinctive voice for a dramatic monologue in a poem ask Robert Browning , leave alone an entire novel.Because the voice is just right formal without being sombre precise without being stiff.Because, unlike in John Updike s Terrorist, you can empathise with and understand Changez, the fundamentalist.Because of the delicious ironie Nine Reasons To Read This One Because it s short, yet evocative a relief at a time when authors needlessly pile on the pages.Because it s hard enough to sustain a distinctive voice for a dramatic monologue in a poem ask Robert Browning , leave alone an entire novel.Because the voice is just right formal without being sombre precise without being stiff.Because, unlike in John Updike s Terrorist, you can empathise with and understand Changez, t...
