This novel was written nearly three decades ago but it was able to reflect the political situations we have in the present, which I think, says a lot. The political satire and the story of the Basbas twins was really good. But I have to admit that the writing style personally threw me off a lot of times that I almost gave up on it if not for how the story eventually picked up fast halfway. Overall, it was still a good read.
