5.0 out of 5 stars London set novel of ideas., 19 Mar. 2009
This review is from: The Road from Damascus (Hardcover)
i found Yassin-Kassab's brilliant debut difficult to put down and it deserves wide popularity.

The book has been reviewed in depth already on amazon so i won't regurgitate any plot but I will say that characters are cleverly used to delineate useful fictional boundaries around and between a few of the multifaceted aspects of Islam in London and, without ramming it in the readers face, Yassin-Kassab demonstrates just how ridiculous and cliched a vast swathe of the media's representation of contemporary British Islam is. It's to the authors great credit that even through employing this clever tactic, the characters remain well rounded and sympathetic instead of ham fisted ciphers and like any good novel, you genuinely miss them after closing the last page.

It's also extremely refreshing to read a new novel that's brim full of ideas, a novel not afraid to have ideas, sometimes radical ones. At times i was even reminded of Philip K. Dick at his drug twisted gnostic best.

I look forward to this talented new authors next novel, i suspect exceptional things are on their way.
