I wasn't too excited about this book while listening to it. I didn't feel for the character, I thought that he was too cliche. I didn't like that he was supposed to be a 'typical' just graduated from high school American. He wasn't. The character is sooo smart at well versed in many types of literature. This didn't mesh with his lack of understanding of political climate in the Middle East.

However, I finished this book almost a week ago. I still am thinking about it. I'm still trying to pick apart the bits and pieces and cliffs at the end of the book.

Thought provoking, what more can you want from a book?

Oh yea, to not have meaningless gay sex. (At the end of the book, a reason becomes apparent, but I think its a stretch and the gay sex scene description is just needlessly gratuitous.)
