The book starts off very good, but drags a bit in the middle. However, it quickly picks up the pace and really gets your attention. My book club picked this book for one of the monthly selections, and while I wouldn't have read it on my own, I'm glad I did. It gives a view of being raised with the Islam faith and how one's priorities and understandings can be so different from those of the mainstream.
A story for today when anyone we pass on the street could be the terrorist we all fear and dread. This tightly written novel explores what happens in a young man's life that drives him on that course. Fast moving, skillfully plotted - you'll enjoy this book from first page to the surprising end.
