The Reluctant Fundamentalist - Mohsin Hamid - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of The Reluctant Fundamentalist:

A Pakistani's change of heart after facing the changes in the world.

My favorite Mohsin Hamid quote from the book:

"Time only moves in one direction."

Questions to ponder while reading The Reluctant Fundamentalist:

Have you ever been disenchanted?

Where do you feel at home?

My thoughts about The Reluctant Fundamentalist:

A look at the struggle between two cultures.

Empathy is the key to understanding.

Can we ever bridge this gap?
