Format: Hardcover
Loved it!! The book is a play and not in narrative format and it is this aspect that makes it a very fast moving story. The tension and suspense is gradually built up right through to the finale and the climax is brilliant albeit tragic.

There is also some humour in there and the scene where Bhutto gives his opinion on LBJ had me on the floor. It was reminiscent of the "dhobi's itch" incident from the book Clash of Fundamentalisms by the same author.

The only criticism I have is that the book is too short. It is no more than a two hour leisurely read and in this respect it sort of leaves you wanting more.

Format: Hardcover
This is fantastic story and commentary on Pakistani politics it is ultimately allows you to understand why Pakistan is in the state it is to today and how different it might have been under a progressive social democratic movement. I am not a the biggest fan of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto but I am big believer in the Ideology he proposed and one that would work across all nations. This book without mention of the current situation in Pakistan and with Al-Qaeda will allow you to understand the role of the US government help in bringing about its own creation of the WAR ON TERROR.

So please read this Book especially if your are a Pakistani.
