The way this book is written is really great. The whole thing is told to me, a buff American soldier, by a bearded Pakistani man who sits at my table uninvited and unwanted.
I don't get to read my own lines, of course. Just his reactions to them. Which is a lot of fun. But the man's life story is a little too much I love Erica
for me, and I'm not crazy about the ambiguous ending - and I normally love crazy endings.
