Mohsin Hamid – The Reluctant Fundamentalist

In the first few chapters, the writer welcomes you with his easy-going, friendly way of putting things.  He invites you to listen to his life story without seeming forceful or self-important.  The experiences he shares with us are simple, honest, and interesting because he is a likeable character from the get-go.  The writer opens himself up in a way that is pleasant and appealing; he draws you in to his unwavering confidence by allowing you to sit down and have a cup of tea with him.  The exchange feels easy and kind, and therefore, like a simple friend, you are attracted to come inside this strange new realm and hear a tale told from the other side of the world.

*Love, hard-working, privilege, accomplishment

*A sense of displacement, wanting to belong, prejudice, inequality, longing
