    " If you like a bit of modern history with a twist this is a great book. I'll never look at a black moustache or a white Toyota corolla the same way again. "

    " The President of Pakistan died in a mysterious plane crash? Who knew? That's about all I took away from this book -- a lot of plot lines weren't fully fleshed out, although the tone of mockery was much appreciated. "

    " Black comedy fiction is not my usual genre.However, i enjoyed this book very much and i highly recommend it. Hanif writes in a very witty and entertaining way, sometimes too descriptive, yet in general a joy to read. What his country passed through and is reflecting in his story, is a lot like many dictatorships around the world, so you will relate if you experienced and been living in s similar "big talk" "no action" regime. "
