The Reluctant FundamentalistThe Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I suggested this for my book groups summer read (perfect for summer as it's short!) and I'm really glad I did.  It's going to provoke lots of discussion amongst us, and it will be interesting to see if I have a different reaction to it than my American friends.

I enjoyed the way it was written - I wasn't expecting that at all and it was a refreshing change to read that style of narration.  I felt totally engaged with the character and could even understand how he came to feel the way he does.

That ending though..............argh!  I think for a long time I will be wondering which way it went!
