This review is from: Osama: A Novel (Paperback)
There are lots of gushing comments from people on the inside of this book about how good it is, comparing the author to philip k dick in particular... maybe people want to say nice things about it because it's an anti war/terrorism novel, but i found it all a little boring to be honest, 300 pages of following a chain smoking semi alcoholic to various bars and pubs while he tries (not very convincingly) to find an obscure author. It isn't particularly well written or original, there were quite a lot of cliches rolled out. Apart from the alternate reality angle, the comparisons to PKD are few and far between...
