I think Chris Cleave is a wonderful writer. He has a beautiful way of phrasing, his descriptions and character development are great, and the creative structure he gives this book-- the entire book written in first person, almost stream of consciousness, in an honest letter from the main character to Osama Bin Laden-- all speak to his skill. I just wish I liked the plot of this book better than I did. It was too dark for me, with not enough hope or redemptive moments. I think Little Bee takes what he started in this book, refines it, and produces a better result.
