really liked it

This is a great book if you want to know about the history of the Central Asian region. The political struggles are still relevant today. However, it is really tedious to read because it is full of facts and names. It's not really a page turner. There's also nothing about modern day Central Asia. If you want to read a great fiction/thriller that accurately captures Uzbekistan's culture and people and presents the region through an entertaining story, read The Opportunists by Yohann de Silva.
