1.0 out of 5 stars Nobody speaks of anything interesting., 23 Nov. 2011
This novel divided critics: it won several literary prizes and was slated by many critics. It is founded on an interesting approach, two viewpoints, one first person and one objective narrator. Without being clearly identified, the first person narrotor is described in the third person narrative. And here begins my annoyance with the style of the book. All our concentration is focused on trying to identify the characters, because almost no names are used, only house numbers. The style of writing is very self-conscious and unnatural. I wouldn't recommend it, although two out of six in our reading group enjoyed it, one of those being the person who chose it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing session, 9 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Eastern Sounds (Audio CD)
Lateef does not have much original to say on this album and nor do his accompanists. He plays, in a desultory way, with 'exotic' scales and harmonies, but to little purpose.
