Dear Reader

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This book is being released via BookCrossing on 5 March 2011 as part of the inaugural World Book Night. With the full support of the Publishers Association, the Booksellers Association, the Independent Publishers Guild, the Reading Agency with libraries, World Book Day and the BBC, one million books will be given away by an army of passionate readers to members of the public across the UK and Ireland.

Read and release!

I was assigned 48 copies of this book to give out as part of world book night 2011. I have just finished reading my last copy, and intend to pass it on to a friend!
I found the style that the book was written in (one end of a two way conversation) to be frustrating and awkward in the first few chapters, but as I read on, I got more in to the book, and found the narrative style to be integral to the plot. Without giving away too much of the ending, it was definatly poignant and somewhat shocking. I advise future readers to look past the initial awkwardness of style, because the book is a short and easy read, and definatly one to make you think.

Changez, a Pakistani man, tells his story of being in America. The time line spams 4 years where he is a young man and he ends up going to Princeton and then working in a small but exalted financial company. The salary is high and many want this exclusive job.

During his time in America, the world trade centre disaster happens, he meets a young woman Erica who he loves and there are issues affecting his family in Pakistan.

He tells his story in a small restaurant in Lahore, his home town to an American. The descriptions are vivid, the story in depth and very interesting.

I never knew what to expect of this book and was pleasantly surprised, reading and immersing myself into his life, his story, his choices, his past and his future.

Well written, easy to read and a little gem of a book.
