批評家のレビュー

"Masterful.... A poignant love story and a thriller that subtly ratchets up the nerve-jangling tension towards an explosive ending." (Metro)

あらすじ・解説

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Reluctant Fundamentalist, written and read by Mohsin Hamid. 

'Excuse me, sir, but may I be of assistance? Ah, I see I have alarmed you. Do not be frightened by my beard. I am a lover of America....' So speaks the mysterious stranger at a Lahore cafe as dusk settles. Invited to join him for tea, you learn his name and what led this speaker of immaculate English to seek you out. 

For he is more worldly than you might expect; better travelled and better educated. He knows the West better than you do. And as he tells you his story, of how he embraced the Western dream - and a Western woman - and how both betrayed him, so the night darkens. 

Then the true reason for your meeting becomes abundantly clear....

Extraordinarily brilliant

Great story merging a young man's thwarted love affair with a young woman doomed by the death of her first and only live, a childhood sweetheart, with the story of his dissallusionment with his work, with America and its ethics, compounded by time and place and culture. Excellently read by the author whose clear flowing writing style is very suited to the confessional nature of how this story is told.

Amazing and spellbinding

Hearing this ,felt to me ,like I really was sitting close by whilst the story in the book was actually happening. I’ve never experienced anything like that before and so I truly thank the writer/narrator for it all ...

incredibly well written, unforgettable story

it was worth listening that book, the vision of America fusioned with one of the main characters is not only a story but the life of a country

Interesting and complex

I liked the story of the relationship of the protagonist and the fact that he was telling it to someone we didn’t know. The air of menace and mystery was a clever technique. Unfortunately, the way it is read on Audible completely detracts from the book itself. Sad, as it is a good book that read with no feeling.

A Self-fulfilling Prophecy

A remarkable story telling itself in its own likeness. Told like a tapestry is woven.
