At a Bookstore in India Sir, I see that you are checking out this book by Mohsin Hamid. I read it a few days back. How did I find it you ask?
Well, it was pretty interesting. I found the narration style of the author quite unique. I think that alone was reason enough to make it worth.
Oh, you are getting distracted. I see you are eyeing those shining new book covers of The Hunger Games and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
They came out after the movies were released. No, I have not seen th At a Bookstore in India Sir, I see that you are checking out this book by Mohsin Hamid.
Are you looking forward to reading the books? I found the books impressive but just my experience with movies inspired from books made me avoid the movies.
Nowadays most of us are. I see in your grip on the book and the way your eyes exuded enthusiasm when you saw the new cover, that you like to buy books.
What prompted you to find this book then? You heard it from a friend and he recommended it to you. You see, this book is about a young Pakistani who went to the US for studies and later lived there with a very lucrative job.
Your eyes are drifting. I think you are becoming bored. You feel this story line has been covered umpteen times in many books.
I must give you something which makes this one different? The emotions displayed by the younger generation of the third world countries when they work for the very country which is making the life of their own people back home miserable.
This is a new breed that has worked their brains hard, can speak English effortlessly and are starting with salaries which are much more than their father's.
Now you are able to connect with it. You are turning some pages to look if you find it interesting.
Reading a full page from the middle of the book is also a good idea. What did you find so astonishing here? Yes, he had a conversation with some man who changed his heart.
But let me tell you that he was not a religious fanatic. Here, you will see some soft emotions. In meeting you the pleasure was all mine.
I like to talk to people about books. Many times you will find me standing alone at this or the other corner of the book store. Would you like to recommend some book to me?

All I heard was something about how we were about to land in Japan. In my sleepy state I assumed that something was wrong with the plane and was about to panic when my husband told me the rest of the captain's message.
Apparently we were denied entry into United States because a passenger was on their no-fly list. On landing in Japan, On a flight back to US from India, about half an hour was left to land in San Francisco, everyone was asleep, when we heard the captain speaking over the intercom.
On landing in Japan, as we all emptied the plane, I saw a family of about 6 - a young boy, bearded, about 20, and women of different ages wearing burkha's - sitting quietly in the center seats not meeting anyones eyes.
I remarked to my husband about how horrid they must be feeling, that just because they are Muslims they must have shown up on the security radar for US.
Once the aircraft had been emptied out, the family was brought out with about 10 men surrounding them and taken away. We boarded the plane again and went on our way.
Once there, we told our friends about our "adventure" and had discussions about racial profiling, heard stories from others about how they had been subjected to profiling.
Pro's and con's of racial profiling, US government, security, prejudice, patriotism, terrorism.. I'm sure you can all imagine what was discussed and debated.
I remember sympathizing with the family on the plane. About a week later, I read that the young boy had later been sent to US and arrested on arrival.
Allegedly he had gone to Pakistan and had taken part in a terrorist camp. I did not follow the case since then. Those of you who are still reading this post, thanks :.
Throughout the book, as I heard Changez the young Pakistani protagonist talk about his life in America, I followed him on all the various issues he tackles in the book.
Be it his social identity, his professional acceptance, America's fair treatment to him and his achievements. But as I finished the book, my thoughts forked out to this incident.
I don't know what happened to the boy in the plane. How accurate were the accusations? Did he or why did he join a camp and many questions that went through my mind.
Many that would remain unanswered. I did wish Mohsin Hamid had ended the book on a definite note, but then that would have made it more fictional than real in account.
This extremely fluid, unapologetic, frank, point of view had me hooked from page 1. Changez a young muslim, confident, achiever, confused, looking for acceptance, searching for identity, guilty of abandoning family, trying to define his patriotism, enjoying the fruits of his labor - all his layers come through with such clarity.
I really enjoyed the narrative style. It flowed naturally. It felt like you were right there listening in on an actual conversation.
Mohsin Hamid has not held back Changez's thoughts to be politically correct, or tried to portray Changez as a victim.
The Reluctant Fundamentalist is an honest, at times appealing and at times disconcerting, account of a man's internal thoughts, who knows that he may be a few feet away from death and has nothing to lose by telling all.

This is not a good book and yet it was compelling, I can't deny it, a smooth, snaky insinuating monologue which in retrospect and often in real-time spect is a ridiculous tissue of allegory, you've seen all this in other reviews but it's all horribly true - our reluctant hero's name is Changez - that's right Ch-ch-ch-changez to you!
The fundamentalism of the title is from the business slogan of the arbitrage company he works for in New York, "focus on the fundamentals" - that's the fundamentalism he's reluctant about.
Okay, nice joke. That said, a lot of the reviews of this book would have you believe it's an apology for al Qaeda - no, it's not, Changez is an extraordinarily secular Muslim - I think the M word is used once only in the whole book, and nowhere does he speak of Islam.
The opposition to America which is eventually accepted and embodied by our troubled young man is entirely political - he does give a faint but pertinent impression of America as the lover who kills you or as the murderer who loves you.
But oh dear, this kind of thing is not good : "I had always resented the manner in which America conducted itself in the world; your country's constant interference in the affairs of others was insufferable.

I liked this book for its elegant style and outsider's viewpoint, but my favorite part of it is the mysterious relationship between the narrator and his American listener.
Te In one sustained monologue, a young Pakistani named Changez relates his life story to an unidentified American man in a cafe in the city of Lahore.
Tension and threat bubble beneath the novel's polite surface, and the possible explanations for that tension keep the reader guessing and give the novel sublety, power and depth.

And I'm glad I made an introduction with Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist, who earlier wrote Moth Smoke, a novel, which Rahul Bose is now adapting into a film.
Lately, there has been a flowering of young Pakistani writers like Hamid and Kamila Shamsie Cartography, Salt And Saffron , and in many ways, this is the first literary stirring that the country is witnessing.
The Reluctant Fundamentalist looks at t I've been trying to read some good Pakistani writing in English for a while now.
The Reluctant Fundamentalist looks at the increasingly volatile and precariously balanced relationship between the West United States and East South Asian Muslim countries , and how without a certain sense empathy, this equation will steadily spiral downwards.
Soon enough, he falls in love with Erica, a rich, pretty and artistically inclined American girl. But this relationship is fraught with troubles.
Though there is a great deal of affection and even curiosity between Changez and Erica about their respective backgrounds, theirs remains a largely unfulfilling bond.
Erica cannot get over Chris, her boyfriend who died some years back and thereby, can never fully 'open up' sexually too with Changez.
In a moment of frustration and even resentment, the latter asks her to imagine him as Chris and make love. Erica stands for America Erica , and symbolises the deep infactuation Changez feels for her on certain levels.
His own company is called Underwood Sampsons, standing for US, a highly competitive firm with a narrow focus on its own progress. Till this point, Changez largely shares a love-hate equation with the US.
He loves being a New Yorker, both his high-flying job and girlfriend fill his heart with a sense of pride.
However, at the same time, Hamid's protagonist is no pushover. Clearly, Changez has a mind of his own and feels a deep sense of attachment to his motherland Pakistan.
The fact that bright minds like him have to desert their own country, to fill the coffers of an already overdeveloped, supercilious country, leaves him frustrated.
From there on, life is never the same and his disenchantment with America is complete. Erica is afflicted with a mental illness and slowly fades away literally from his life.
This is a period when Changez also develops a certain rebellious streak, refusing to either cut off his beard or focus on his job.
News of America's attacks on Afghanistan, Pakistan's closest neighbour fills his heart with resentment and from there on, it's only a matter of time before he loses his job.
Once back in Pakistan, Changez becomes a professor at a University, 'who makes it his mission on the campus to advocate Pakistan's disengagement with America' Though the book does not, in any way, glorify fundamentalism, it subtly points at how sparks of fundamentalism can be ignited in the most placid looking people and circumstances.
Hamid succeeds in making his central character-Changez engaging from the word go and it helps that this book is a rather compact, slim one, without too much rambling.
But, while Hamid's attempt at constructing an allegorical narrative is interesting, it is hardly intrusive enough to lend the story any kind of depth.
If anything, it slackens its dramatic pace, making it both tedious and essayist. On the other hand, Changez's professional life has been treated with great flair and understanding.
There are great stories to be written on the increasing east-west gulf and the growing feelings of mistrust between both continents.
The Reluctant Fundamentalist only skims the surface, but nevertheless Hamid does enough to prove that he's a writer to watch out for. View all 24 comments.
Because the voice is just right — formal without being sombre; precise without being stiff. Because of the delicious ironies, among them the fact that Changez works in a US firm that evaluates companies ripe for takeover; virtually the first piece of advice he receives is to stick to the fundamentals.
Because in less than pages, Hamid creates both a compelling protagonist and a compelling argument. View 2 comments.
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The structure of this is tale is Changez telling his personal story to a burly American visitor probably a spook of some sort to his country, in his function as a guide to Pakistan.
The tone was very reminiscent of Rudyard Kipling, at least as far as I recall from my reading of Kipling many years back.
Think The Man Who Would Be King. This makes sense given the subject matter of the book, colonialism versus the third world.
Changez, born to fading gentry in Pakistan, has attended Princeton on scholarship, gotten a lucrative job with a top tier financial company, and is in love with beautiful, blond upper-class Yank.
Life is good. In the newly paranoid USA, his background marks him as a threat to many and life changes. Essentially what we have here is a foreigner Changez falling in love with America get it?
The result of this is that amERICA suffers from extreme nostalgia and becomes incapable of truly embracing Changez subtle.
It is no secret that the USA is notoriously unempathetic to the concerns of others since the Marshall Plan.
Fundamentals here are the tools taught him in his finance career efficiency. Fundamentals are implied for other things, knowing who you are, what your place is in the world.
There are, surprisingly, no overt connections made to religious fundamentalism. I did not take this as a personal tale. It is a metaphoric one.
