Interesting read

You probably need to be from the sub-continent to identify with some of the keen observations made in the book about how the Americans interpret us. A few of them were more than chuckle worthy. Also I enjoyed reading the 'other sides' perspective in the post 9/11 world as well as Indian parliament… (View complete review)

Ok quick read.

I found this too be an Ok quick read, the writing style - of writing it as only one person talking was a new experience, initially it felt good...but by the end of it it becomes boring. I feel the movie is better than the book, - keep you interested with different people and scenes.

Hated it

The book and movie have got a fair bit of publicity and I must've been one of the last people to read it. Self-indulgent, unmitigated rubbish. The only good thing- it wasn't long.

Not quite there, yet at the same time POWERFUL

b4 anything else, kudos to Mohsin Hamid for attempting a monologue that lasted the whole novel, all 184 pages, and for never letting it go haywire.
unapologetic, frank, not always inclined at being politically correct, charming, seductively polite, a straight-A Princeton graduate, an Underwood Sampsons employee earning $80,000 and a man who made it his mission, on returning to his homeland in Pakistan, as a profeesor in a university, 'to advocate Pakistan's disengagement with America'. That's what our reluctant fundamentalist is like.

the beginning was good in the sense that it was a flat 2

Read only for its prose!

Hello everyone!

"The Reluctant Fundamentalist", sounds very intelligent! But the book fails to establish this connection through its story. I found the protagonist extremely confused, he is not sure whether he is reluctant or a fundamentalist. In between, is his love story, contributing nothing to the story that he wants to tell. There are lose remarks made about India and America, he does not substantiate on why he said that. If you have to read, i would suggest you to do so for its fine prose (yeah! the writer is gifted with vivid descriptions) and for its technique of narrating the story t

Also I enjoyed reading the 'other sides' perspective in the post 9/11 world as well as Indian parliament attack. The descriptions are vivid. I am tempted to claim that I have been to Lahore as I could smell the bazaar, the people and of course the food. I particularly liked the ending since it was left to us to decide how we wanted the story to end. This I found very clever as I toyed with various

Exquisite prose & marvelous carry through

This book shows the transition of the author from a banker to a "reluctant" fundamentalist. Conflicts are captured well and the pages just fly by.

His conflicts seem real, in case you have been a minority anywhere. Although have to admit, it stays on the mind. Story is cliched but gets a good treatment.

Definitely a sunday afternoon read
