    A good book about general Zia and his era but not an excellent one. but it is a nice attempt given there is no attempt at fictionalizing the life of this most hated dictator of Pakistan It is told through the story of Ali Shigri, his friend Obaid or Baby O and Colonel Shigri It has glimpses of an obscure Major Kiani I wonder if that major is Gener

    I am not sure what this book was all about General Zia ul Haq dies in the end which is not a spoiler, btw and someone killed him The story is about who killed him I think It is also a political satire on Pakistan s crazy political figures It is about the army I think In fact, I don t really know what to think.The book drives the narrative forward by alterna

    Having read a review of this book in the NYT, we promptly purchased it Not the kind of thing we normally do but Sorayya needed to read it for professional reasons her own current book takes place in an adjacent time period and the same place I will give you her impressions after I give mine.I don t think this is a good book but it has to be read Its importance is tha

    An unlikely revolutionary assassin narrates a fictionalized , ironized and quite funny tale of Pakistan s General Zia ul Haq s rise to power, rule and death due to multiple causes Wondering why there s no fatwa issued against Hanif for this one Interesting queer twist, and little bits of social commentary poke through the broad strokes of the plot adding resonance and poignancy Probably a better grasp of the politic

    This book has mouldered at the 1 spot on my to read list for four years It exited in that unhappy limbo of not being available from the library yet not being exciting enough to make me want to buy it Since moving to England, I ve started trying to work my way through the oldest books on my list, so I gave in and bought this cheaply It s hard to remember why I wanted to read it in the first place I think I saw it at the bookst
