5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Read of 2013, 25 Nov 2013
A great book, as a British Pakistani myself I thought I had a very good understanding of the country, until I read this book. I saw another perspective, having finished it, for the first time ever my mother in law asked to read it also, as did my 11 year old nephew!
What is good about the read is that it pulls no punches, the author has rightly criticized many including normally untouchable institutions like the army and state. But they are balanced as well and not scapegoating.

If you are looking to read a book, look no further. This one is unforgettable.
The Real Deal: My Story from Brick Lane to Dragons&hellip by James Caan
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read, 9 Dec 2012
I stumbled upon this book which happened to be on my sisters bookshelf and ended up skimming the first chapter, before I knew what was happening I was asking to borrow it and ended up thoroughly enjoying it. Definitely a good read and I know there are life lessons for us all in it.
Jinnah, Pakistan and Islamic Identity: The Search &hellip by Akbar Ahmed
It was a good read, I have read others but this one does delve into more depth than some other biographies. It also has more details on the Pakistan movement, and does not seek to idolise Jinnah, so much as place him in context.

A recommended read on the man.
