Excellent quick read! It's like a Middle Eastern "Sex and the City". I quite enjoyed reading this short novel, and learning that even in the strictest of cultures, people face the same obstacles with the opposite sex, and go through the same delusions about love and "happiness".
My only complaint is that it was not longer. I finished it in only one New York City train ride (about 40 minutes)!
The author is a brilliant woman, and I look forward to her future books. She has me chomping at the bit for more!
