Changez is living an immigrant's dream of America. At the top of his class at Princeton, he is snapped up by an elite firm that specializes in the valuation of companies ripe for acquisition. He thrives on the energy of New York. But in the wake of September 11, he finds his position in his adopted city suddenly overturned. And Changez's identity is in seismic shift as well, unearthing allegiances more fundamental than money, power, and perhaps even love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Read This book was really unexpected. It keeps you guessing and has a bit of a thriller quality about it. It's well written and was an enjoyable read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thought Provoking Thriller The author of the Reluctant Fundamentalist uses monologue in a very interesting way. While reading the story, it kind of makes you wonder if are you the one being talked to or not. If one can explain the experience, it is up to the reader to decide. I really recommend this book because it will help you open your mind by experiencing the perspective on what it would feel like if you are a Middle Eastern man in post 9/11 America.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thought provoking and interesting It seems like while we are sitting in one of the popular restaurants of Lahore (Pakistan) savouring the busy atmosphere of the city at dusk, we overhear one side of the conversation between a native Pakistani man, a former American immigrant, and an American visitor. During the course of their dinner, the one voiced dialogue reveals the real identity of the characters and the connection between them. As the ominous darkness slowly creeps into the town, so does the tension escalates between the two men as they say good bye to each other. It’s an enjoyable book to read.
