The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid
The Reluctant Fundamentalist

vince1178, April 29, 2009

Here's a 9/11 tale told from a completely different perspective from our (American) own. While there are some flaws and ultimately the book tries too hard to be a political thriller, the ideas it serves up are worth contemplating. I read this as part of a book club and it gave us plenty to discuss. It's a quick and worthy read.
