I liked some things about this book, especially the context (geographical and cultural) and the protagonist, whom I found interesting and compelling. He's an Iraqi doctor turned cell phone salesman who has recently returned to an Iraqi village from several years of education, training and life in the US. He's a man with secrets. I liked the thoughtful, perceptive and open-minded author explanation for writing this novel from the perspective of an Iraqi man (in an Q/A at the end). I did not care for the flow of the book nor the flashbacks and I found large chunks of the story to be really confusing. The author clears up all confusion in the end, but by then my interest and my appreciation of the novel had waned.
