The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a book written by Mohsin Hamid. The book was published in spring, 2007. Mohsin Hamid was born in 1971 in Lahore, Pakistan, where the main character in the book, Changez, is from.
The book is about Changez telling his story to a stranger he met in a café. Most of this story takes place in New York, and places he visits during work or vacation. He meets Erica and falls in love with her, but she has some problems. She isn’t able to get over her previous boyfriend, Chris, who died from cancer.
So far the book seems interesting. I know that he leaves the U.S later in the story, and I’m wondering what event caused him to leave. So I’m curious about that I guess, but most of all I want to know more about the stranger he met and is talking to. He seems suspicious and out of place. I want to know more of his story.
