批評家のレビュー

"Mixing the real and the surreal, using old fairy-tale magic.... Compelling, crystalline, unnervingly dystopian." (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times)

あらすじ・解説

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Exit West written and read by Mohsin Hamid. 

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2017

This is Nadia. She is fiercely independent, with an excellent sense of humour and a love of smoking alone on her balcony late at night. 

This is Saeed. He is sweet and shy and kind to strangers. He also has a balcony but he uses his for stargazing. 

This is their story: a love story, but also a story about how we live now and how we might live tomorrow. Saeed and Nadia are falling in love, and their city is falling apart. Here is a world in crisis and two human beings travelling through it. Exit West is a heartfelt and radical act of hope - a novel to restore your faith in humanity and in the power of imagination.

Boring, cliched and poorly written

With all of three pages devoted to dialogue, this isn't a story of rich characters and interesting plot development, but a summary of events. The narrative is extremely predictable (it is almost as if the author cooked up the story by reading articles on the refugee experience) and at no point does one feel any empathy or understanding towards the characters. The book has so many problems it is hard to detail them all in one review.

Great

Opens the heart and the mind, as great art should. An important and sensitive point of view of our rapidly changing world. Thank you

Poetic dystopia

Beautiful, mysterious and tender. Poetic dystopia with a magical realism grounded in our world and the way it is changing.

A Tale of Two Halves

I enjoyed the first half of the book more than the second half. It is almost two different tales intertwined together by two common characters. The second half did not feel real. The audio by the author was great.

Great potential

Its sort of disappointing to have this great ideas which could’ve made a great book but end up with a “goodish” one It’s like the author have this extraordinary loom that have the potential to wave a magical flying carpet but he used it to produce an ordinary rug which can’t fly have nothing magical about it. But it’s still distinguishable because of the great tool used to make it.

Rather a strange story

What did you like best about Exit West? What did you like least?

I found this a difficult book to get into, and realised that it was somewhat fanciful. The narrator (although also the author) did not read it well, as it came across very stilted. I've managed to get hold of a library book to read it as well as it is one we're doing for our book club. Hoping it might be better read rather than listened to.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

struggling to answer this question...

What didn’t you like about Mohsin Hamid’s performance?

The stilted way he spoke

If this book were a film would you go see it?

no
