Definitely NOT a disappointment; if it's a disappointment, you missed the point! This short novel seems to be very autobiographical and deals with estrangement--cultural, family, country, and the ultimate estrangement of death. Moreover, these are human issues with which we must all contend every day. We are all the same, whether we are in Iraq or UK or USA.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
