According to the critic, Hamid does this through the character of Erica, a novelist, who stands for Hamid's "Eureka" moments when Hamid as an author was inspired , taking the debate away from Erica as America.

The novel was shortlisted for the Booker Prize , Howard Davies commenting at the time it was an 'unofficial runner-up' at a lecture at LSE.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The structure of this is tale is Changez telling his personal story to a burly American visitor probably a spook of some sort to his country, in his function as a guide to Pakistan.

The tone was very reminiscent of Rudyard Kipling, at least as far as I recall from my reading of Kipling many years back. Think The Man Who Would Be King.

This makes sense given the subject matter of the book, colonialism versus the third world. Changez, born to fading gentry in Pakistan, has attended Princeton on scholarship, gotten a lucrative job with a top tier financial company, and is in love with beautiful, blond upper-class Yank.

Life is good. In the newly paranoid USA, his background marks him as a threat to many and life changes. Essentially what we have here is a foreigner Changez falling in love with America get it?

The result of this is that amERICA suffers from extreme nostalgia and becomes incapable of truly embracing Changez subtle.

It is no secret that the USA is notoriously unempathetic to the concerns of others since the Marshall Plan. Fundamentals here are the tools taught him in his finance career efficiency.

Fundamentals are implied for other things, knowing who you are, what your place is in the world. There are, surprisingly, no overt connections made to religious fundamentalism.

I did not take this as a personal tale. It is a metaphoric one. I mean the main character has but a single name, Changez. For that alone, how could the book be anything other than metaphorical?

So I was not troubled by the contradictions in the character. For example, Changez feels an affinity with the jeepney driver in the Philippines, yet the choices he makes are all to strive within the western world.

He manages to get a scholarship to attend Princeton, but feels it necessary to hide his relative poverty. Are there no other scholarship kids at Princeton?

He is elitist in his orientation, wanting to hang with the rich kids, wanting to work for the heavy hitter financial company, even after it becomes clear to him that the work will cost people their livelihoods, wanting to be with the crazy girl when it is clear that she is over the edge.

It is not America that rejects the foreigner here, but the foreigner who rejects America. So it is not a personal tale. It would have been better had the walking symbols here been made more reasonable, had their desires and impulses been a little more grounded in flesh and blood reality.

There's menace there something is about to happen, and soon. You're not told why the American is there, or what he does, or quite why young Changez is telling him these things.

But there it is. This voice educated, articulate, tinged with hostility and faux-bonhomie and self-pity speaking into t An eerie, quietly powerful story.

This voice educated, articulate, tinged with hostility and faux-bonhomie and self-pity speaking into the dusk, ordering more tea, and There are reviewers at GoodReads who just didn't get the narrator, who just disliked him out of hand.

After all, they said full scholarship to Princeton, near-six-figure Wall Street job at 22, beautiful American girlfriend: how dare he dislike America?

I just kept reading and thinking about Dostoyevsky's "Devils" or Conrad's "Under Western Eyes". Changez would be From a family with old name and status but no money.

Educated someplace where you're almost never aware of being different, where suddenly money is an issue, where status and formalized deference don't soften the edges of not having money.

A job with travel to places where you're aware of being American in the eyes of locals, but being a mere foreigner to American customs officials.

Being smitten with a beautiful, gentle Upper East Side girl who slips away from you. Changez turns on the TV in a Manila hotel suite and sees the Towers burning on 11 September and finds himself suddenly, unexpectedly However not?

You can see Changez being as surprised as any of his American employers and friends at just how much resentment is there. Just the sort of person who could be recruited, who'd find himself seeking out places where he could open up his anger.

There's no grand political justification here, no sudden acceptance of Islam or jihad. Changez is secular, and his disdain for Americans isn't religious as much it is based on tribe and class and a sense of falling between identities.

Mohsin Hamid gives his narrator a disturbing and quiet sense of slowly growing bitterness and isolation, as well as a slowly growing desperation about finding an identity.

I am a Kurtz , he tells his nameless American listener, waiting for my Marlowe. Very much worth reading, and a book where you'll be uncovering layers in Changez's monologue for a long time.

View all 10 comments. One of the most contentiously rated novels I've seen here I'd had the book for years probably, when, a couple months ago, I determined that I needed to make shelf space.

This was one of a few books I decided to get rid of, even though it was unread. But it was so short, and I had looked forward to reading it So I put it beside books I was reading and would soon read, then picked it up a few nights ago when I was tired but didn't feel like going to bed, and started reading.

As soon as I'd read a couple pages I was interested. Can't recall reading a story in this narrative style. It's all in the first person, the words are being spoken by the narrator, Changez, to an American man, never named, whose apparently only occasional words are never explicitly heard, simply acknowledged in the narration by something like, Oh, but you mustn't assume that I believed that, sir.

You'd like something to drink? How would some nice tea do for you? Fine, I'd like a cup too, I'll order for us. The entire almost one-sided conversation takes place over the course of several hours, from mid-afternoon perhaps to late at night.

In it, the Pakistani narrator tells a select story of his life, his experiences going to Princeton, being hired by a small, select financial company in Manhattan, and meeting and falling for a young American woman named Erica.

The story of Changez and Erica is very strange, doubly strange when folded into this sort of narrative style. I think I'll remember it for quite a while.

I'm sure the low ratings of many have nothing to do with the literary merits of the novel. They have to do with the attitudes toward America that Changez slowly reveals throughout his telling, attitudes which in fact he only becomes aware of as certain incidents occur which evoke as he tells it surprise on his own part, when he realizes how he has reacted.

I don't believe I'll go into any specifics about this, but I found his recounting of these attitudes very believable from the point of view of a person from that part of the world.

The story is something of a mystery — a mystery with at least two, perhaps more, ominous threads which slowly are revealed and slowly grow darker.

And it is literature, not a political essay. In many ways, for many reasons, an unforgettable novel. View all 8 comments. An Open Letter to America which unfortunately I read late, around 5 years late.

Why unfortunate? Anyway, I was well aware when this book hit the literary world and took it by storm. I know where you are heading.

I once had a girl Norwegian wood…Yes! Will Smith and request for the memory eraser toy and move on to your next Murakami read.

And Nooo!! It made me uncomfortable throughout rather than excited and the most irritating part is that you are compelled to read it till the end in the hope of getting hold of the whole idea behind this book.

At the end, the author hurled a very smart curve ball towards his readers, leaving most of us in dilemmas, some on the side of Changez the protagonist , some on the side of Mr.

America envying that delectable Lahori food he had and some wishing to watch the re-run of epic cricket world cup semi-final between India and Pakistan and marveling at its brilliance and that moment when..

I never knew writing the review would be a similar experience like that of reading this book.. This is the second book I read by a Pakistani author, first being My Feudal Lord by Tehmina Durrani, which I judged on the basis of its subject and not on writing style and since I read it around 6 years ago, all I could recall was that it was simple but affected me enough to evoke emotions of empathy which might not hold true at present having read many great books and becoming more aware and objective about the world around me since then so it might not feature in the league of extra ordinary but it definitely left an impression which reluctant fundamentalist, as I highly doubt would be able to achieve.

As the story was unfolding it became, hardly audible and incredibly distant. And the writing style!! This book has some great ideas but somehow fell short of the elements that would have made it a great page turner.

It felt too safe and too confined for my taste. Islamic Fundamentalism is a sensitive subject and needs to be handled carefully without actually conveying any negative message or an ambiguous one but what Mohsin Hamid as seemed, resisted from going out of his comfort zone and stating everything at a superficial level without actually diving deep.

Location: Lahore, the famous Food Street in Old city. The Reluctant Fundamentalist dines with an anonymous person about whom the only information we get is his nationality: he's an American man.

How and why he's here we don't get to find out. The American seems like a phantasmal installation - a dummy of sorts - to lend our Reluctant Fundamentalist an ear.

The narrative is almost entirely made up of a monologue; the reader is not allowed to hear the reactions of the American stranger.

Changez speaks continuously as he recounts his experiences of student life in the US. Through this unimpressive frame story, as though a flippant Conrad gone berserk, we enter the main story.

Changez has a common migrant story. He goes to study at Princeton yes it is always Princeton or Harvard or Oxford or Cambridge - it seems fictional characters don't go to medium-tier universities but that's a non-sequitur!

The ensuing American invasions unhinge Changez. He begins to doubt himself he just starts doubting, without going through a process of introspection which, included, would have lent some credibility to the narrative , his loyalties change, his outlook on life undergoes a drastic no-angled turn, and he finds himself questioning his life in the United States.

This break is symbolically represented by Changez's relationship with an American girl 'Erica', who is actually 'America' - once his beloved, now an undesired castaway.

They have one good sex, a mutual orgasm, and then they go separate ways. It is not so much a tale of a truly reluctant fundamentalist than a person torn between what he sees as two mutually exclusive sets of loyalties.

Changez suffers from an identity crisis and religious fundamentalism only makes up a silly excuse.

There's nothing in his new outlook that confirms his born-again religiosity. His opposition to American warmongering is political not religious.

This gives us room for interpretation but we do get the message don't we All in all, it's a fast read, enjoyable for its humour, but nothing much apart from that, and it doesn't require of you to think much before you have finished reading the slender novella.

But if a work of fiction depends so much on day-to-day history, it simply means that it's destined to last as long as the hype lasts.

However,the nomination generated quite a buzz,and introduced me to Mohsin Hamid. And oh boy,his first two books were very impressive.

He is more aware and more immune to assimilation. It enables him to see the injustice and bias against him and his people.

The electricity had gone that afternoon, giving the place a gloomy air, but even in the dim light of the hissing gas heaters our furniture appeared dated and in urgent need of reupholstery and repair.

This was where I came from, this was my provenance, and it smacked of lowliness Hamid His attitude towards his house changes instantly.

In the same exact page, he views his house as a Pakistani, as a son, and as a person who grew up in it and contemplates how he begins to be what he dislikes the most.

He realizes that he himself has changed. He realizes that being away in a different culture has changed him and feels disturbed by this realization.

This point further moves him away from the western identity. He sees the different way in which the eastern culture is perceived, and how misrepresented it is.

After coming back to America, his language begins to reflect his pride in his heritage, culture, religion and country.

He seriously considers going back to his country. All the aspects that make it easy for Changez to be a part of the American culture fail him.

Changez fails to establish a sense of belonging. He fails to belong to his girlfriend, Erica, whom he tries to be a part of her life but fails.

Erica cannot forget her deceased boyfriend, and Changez loses her to depression and possibly suicide. There is no chance for him to live in America, start a family, or even work.

He sees the true colors of politics. This form of imperialism is what Edward Said describes as lingering in cultural aspects and the political, ideological, economic and social practices 9.

This is the point where his struggle rests. Changezsees the futility of what he is doing. His job means nothing to him. The majority of the people around him no longer welcome him.

He is an unwelcomed bearded-stranger. He decides to go back and be with his family. He intends to do something for his country. The Reluctant Fundamentalist.
