This book is probably hard for most Americans to get into. It's very metafictional, for one, but the themes of identity crises with the Muslim population in France will also go right over your head unless you're somewhat aware of French/Muslim culture. I suggest doing a bit of research before picking this book up. The ending still felt like a cop-out to me, but the book is at least funny.
