Although I only gave it two stars as well, I think this would be a great book to discuss in a book group! Interested to read your thoughts.

I'm not going to read the review due to the spoilers, but CRAP! I just bought this on Audible.com. And I always trust your reviews...darnit!

Pardon me. Asma was Bangladeshi. Thank you, Laura!

I agree--interesting premise, yet spooled out more like a news ticker than a novel. Waldman is clearly a talented journalist, but fiction written in the style of nonfiction (as opposed to the reverse) is not in high demand.

Nate, I was odd one out in my book club too. I heard her speak about the book which made me wish I could have liked it.

Were you as surprised as I was when the group started raving, Nan? I was blindsided by everyone else's love of the book. I do very much look forward to her second book. She definitely has the ideas down!
