beautiful writing

by Dr Hunter B on Jul 14, 2011

Wonderful novel with gorgeous metaphor upon metaphor. The most intriguing book I have read in the last few years, which added greatly to my understanding of Muslim life in England. Strongly recommended.


Trying Too Hard

by MariaUmar on Jul 2, 2007

Nadeem Aslam is another one in an increasing number of authors from the sub-continent writing about the everyday trials and tribulations of Indians and Pakistanis living abroad. So, what makes him different than the others? Perhaps it is his ability to knit together several plots and make them into one whole. But to me and my reading circle this happened to be his biggest vice too ; touching too many subjects in one book. His character portrayal is no doubt fantastic that many sub-continental immigrants can relate to. What detracts from an over-all good book is a lack of spontaneity. It seems that Mr. Aslam is 'trying hard' to write a prize winner and at moments loses his grip as happens with all literature that doesn't come straight from the heart.


Charming ride through the lives of immigrants

by bombayKaChhokra on May 3, 2007

As a reflection of the increasing diversity in Western societies because of the "flat-earth" phenomenon, we have a lot of books trying to open windows into the lives of immigrants. But Nadeem Aslam does an exemplary job at this. His portrayal of Kaukab in this novel is most laudable.
