  • Interesting

    The blurb and first few chapters of this really drew me in however I must admit I floundered with it until about half way through then seemed to read the rest really quickly. The subject is undoubtedly frank and refreshing but is more the story of Amir panicking about being outed to his family when he was not ready to be and finding acceptance within Italy than the actual details of him coming out, in fact his families reaction was barely represented. The interrogation room detail broke things up well especially his sister Soraya’s parts as they added detail to the story from someone other than Amir’s perspective which the story is primarily based on. I did enjoy reading about Amir’s exploits in Rome and the colourful characters but would have preferred more focus on the family as a whole. 7/10

  • Loved it!

    Loved it! The characters are all set out in an easy to read way. I can imagine how each looks and feels. The plot is really easy to follow but also covers some more difficult topics that aren't often seen in books. Its an easy book to get into. The story starts straight away and gets straight into the narrative. Once I started I didn't want to put it down! Amir's narrative is really creative and it feels as though I'm inside his head. It's totally engaging. It was honest, it was funny and it was easy to relate to. A gay Muslim main character isn't often seen in books as both are minorities but Amir's representation feels refreshing and true. Amir is terrified to come out to his Muslim family but ends up being caught by blackmailers ( a bit of a 'Simon vs the Homosapien agender' vibe going on!) It does remind me quite a bit of Love Simon and not just because of similar motives.

    Thanks for your feedback!
