really liked it

More interesting than gripping. Insight into Somalia's current woes emerges through this very intimate family portrait. Farah's writing is complex, his themes elemental: loyalty, identity, place. In the end, after 250 pps of personal details, young Askar remains a mystery, intentional, but puzzling.
