The Reluctant Fundamentalist
The Reluctant Fundamentalist | Mohsin Hamid
Now a major motion picture One of those achingly assured novels that makes you happy to be a reader. Junot Diaz At a caf table in Lahore, a bearded Pakistani man converses with an uneasy American stranger. As dusk deepens to night, he begins the tale that has brought them to this fateful encounter . . . Changez is living an immigrants dream of America. At the top of his class at Princeton, he is snapped up by an elite valuation firm. He thrives on the energy of New York, and his budding romance with elegant, beautiful Erica promises entry into Manhattan society at the same exalted level once occupied by his own family back in Lahore. But in the wake of September 11, Changez finds his position in his adopted city suddenly overturned, and his relationship with Erica shifting. And Changezs own identity is in seismic shift as well, unearthing allegiances more fundamental than money, power, and maybe even love. Brief, charming, and quietly furious . . . a resounding success.

Today I‘m curled up on the couch and starting to tackle my enormous TBR pile with this book.
What is rare is I actually remember when I added this to my ever growing pile.

Shortly after this list was published I found these at a library book sale. This year I hope to finally read them. #IHaveWaitedThreeYearsForThis #BeatTheBacklist

This book left me feeling quiet, in a good, reflective way. The way the story was told - to a stranger at a restaurant - was peculiar... not sure I liked that approach as often as it was confronted, but it was interesting regardless. The book offered perspective in a way that is not usually attended to. Uneasy ending, but one that leaves the reader only further intrigued.

On balance I really liked this. The narrator was so individual and it worked so so well as an audiobook, I loved the style of the writing and the central character. Can‘t deny I‘d have loved the only main female character to be a bit more of a person in her own right rather than an unfathomable enigma symbolising political forces but it didn‘t make it a bad book.

"I had always thought of America as a nation that looked forward; for the first time I was struck by its determination to look back."

I was moved by this book - by the narrator's perspective on a post-9/11 America, by his pursuit of love, and by the relevance this book holds in today's #political climate. I was left wanting to discuss Erica as a #metaphor for #America as well as Hamid's ending.

This was a strange one; it was compulsively readable, so much so I read it In nearly one sitting, but I felt I was missing something. I realise now that much of the central love story may be an allegory, but it was so lightly done that I didn‘t feel the main character‘s change of heart about America was fully explained or explored. I wanted more from this than it gave and was left feeling unsettled and unsatisfied.

TrishB Great review 👍🏻 8mo

This is a strange one. There's something that makes you keep turning the pages. I did read this in a day, but there's nothing of substance here. Even the writing seemed awfully contrived at the end, some of the analogies are so cringeworthy I was amazed how they made it in, and most importantly it's all a bit shallow. I wanted more nuance and depth, especially in the politics. A wasted opportunity IMO. 2.5 🌟
But idk why it's so readable.

LauraBeth This is a thoughtful review. 12mo
Naj @LauraBeth That's exactly what I needed this book to be! More thoughtful. And definitely way longer than it was. 200 odd pages are way too less for what Hamid wanted to say. I will read Exit West though as I am interested to see how different it is from this one, and I really hope it is different. 12mo

First book in #24in48 #readathon & it‘s a hard one to review. Many valid observations about the assumptions we make & solid points about the imperialist attitude often found in the US. Plus a truly amazing, challenging ending that makes this book a controversial work of art. It also flat pissed me off. I heard people (via phone) dying on the morning of 9/11, so I tend to have a visceral, non-objective reaction. Still, I wholeheartedly recommend.

At a café in Lahore, Changez, a Pakistani, chats with an uneasy American stranger, detailing the story of his life. He was living the dream of every immigrant to the U.S. -- until 9/11/01. This is written in a fascinating narrative style -- the entire book is just Changez talking to the man, who is never quoted but whose impressions and reactions are described in a way that makes him seem like an important character.

This was number 5 for #makemereadit. Another excellent pick. I wasn‘t fond of the narrative style at first—2nd person/one-sided conversation—and as the book went on, the narration had me on edge (perfectly so). The narrator, a Pakistani national, describes working at a prestigious NYC firm in the months leading up to & following 9/11. I‘m fascinated by unreliable narrators (or was he?) & this was perfectly executed. Wonderfully thought-provoking.

As a society, you were unwilling to reflect upon the shared pain that united you with those who attacked you. You retreated into myths of your own difference, assumptions of your own superiority. And you acted out these beliefs on the stage of the world, so that the entire planet was rocked by the repercussions of your tantrums, not least my family, now facing war thousands of miles away.

This quick read has a very unique writing structure, it is basically one side of a conversation between two men, one who does all the talking. The story details his life graduating from Princeton, getting a lucrative job, becoming completely infatuated with a women..all with 9/11 as the backdrop and feeling more & more drawn back to his native Pakistan and it‘s precarious position as the US begins it‘s war on terrorism.(spoiler below)
#Reading1001

Riveted_Reader_Melissa What I loved was the untied up quality of a lot of the questions, it leaves you with this disaffected young man, totally disillusioned with the American Dream, who could go either way, could have already gone either way... and that unanswered ending I think is just genius in many ways. It puts you in his shoes where you can understand how he could fall in either direction with equal probability. 1y

A very thought provoking book which slowly pulls the reader into a personal allegorical story about falling in love with America and then slowly rejecting that dream. The narrator tells his story through a delightfully written monologue addressed to an American stranger in a home town cafe in Pakistan. The ending is both obvious and completely ambiguous.

Reggie @ValerieAndBooks Have you read Exit West? Based on all the reviews, I think he‘s either love him or hate him. I love him. 2y
Reggie @batsy did you read Exit West? I feel he has a pulse on how America is viewed by the rest of the world and I don‘t think it is undeserved. Even in Exit West when he mentions how the refugees would see tv for the first time and wonder how people could have gameshows where food is wasted. I also have felt this way watching some of the Food Network. Anyways, I hope you like The Reluctant Fundamentalist. He deceptively packs a lot in a short book. 2y
Cathythoughts Oh did he write Exit West. I loved that ! Didn‘t realize this is the same author 👍 2y
batsy I haven't, but I think I should. I've flipped through his books in the store and wasn't moved to get them, but now seeing quotes and reviews and your comment... I'm thinking at the very least, I need to give Exit West a try. I like your description of his political engagement in fiction. 2y

Reggie @Centique I was not meant to own the movie. I loaned it to a friend who loaned it to a friend who moves out of state. That original friend gave it to me for X-mas that year as an apology. Lol. And then the next month I loaned it to a coworker who gets fired the next day and moved without ever giving it back. Boo. Have you ever watched any Pedro Almodovar Spanish movies? Those are also great. 2y

Great book to end the year on. Written in the wake of 9/11, the themes are relevant right now. It touches on the dangers of nostalgia (the most toxic impulse per John Hodgman), nationalism, generalizations about entire religions. Like Exit West, the brevity really worked and kept the tension high.

Thanks to @inwhichHeikereadsharder for sending this one.

Of course I felt torn! I had thrown in my lot with ...with the officers of the empire, when all along I was predisposed to feel compassion for those, like Jean Baptista, whose lives the Empire thought nothing of over turning for its own gain. The author/protagonist convienently forgets what America has done for him and spends the book looking at how he has been wronged. His love affair with the pathetic debutante is just that.

#firstpersonnarrator very effectively helps the reader understand Changez's outsider feeling despite an Ivy League education and job in NYC finance. A Pakistani living in America pre and post 9/11 -struggling with how he is perceived by society and himself. The novel takes place as a dinner table conversation in Pakistan and forces the reader to question and confront how the U.S. moves in the world. A moving and difficult read. #uncannyoctober

I liked the idea of this book but not its execution. I didn't connect with anything, not the characters, not the prose, not the story. I loved Exit West, so I'll probably keep checking out Hamid's backlog. Certainly wasn't bad but it was a miss for me.

HOWEVER, apparently this was made into a movie in 2012 directed by Mira Nair who is amazing. (If you haven't seen Monsoon Wedding, do yourself a favor). I feel like that might be worth watching.

5⭐️ read. I very much enjoyed this book. Told entirely by the main character as he reflects back on his choices over the past few years, including a relationship that has never left him and how torn he felt between his home (Pakistan) & his developing life in the US. Beautiful writing, Lahore became real to me off the page and an ending you expect just as you arrive there. Wholeheartedly recommend!
