    Heart of Bangladesh is written with such startling realism that I can't help but think it is largely autobiographical/historical. The settings of Bangladesh are lovingly written with such clarity that I almost believe that I was there and meeting the very people described in the book. Books like this one are the entire reason I read. Hundreds of books can be read and enjoyed but then you stumble across one like Heart of Bangladesh and you don't want it to end and the next bunch of books you read pale in comparison. Heart of Bangladesh is a beautiful story, beautifully written. While reading it is difficult not to sit and weep for Bangladesh and her people. I cannot recommend this wonderful book highly enough. It is one of the best books I have read this year. The writing style of Heart of Bangladesh is sparse and simple, yet it packs an emotional bash. I could smell the bombs raiding Dhaka from Pakistan jets, see the millions of refugees desperately trying to flee the war torn country, and feel the despair of the Bangladeshi people over the loss of their day to day life due to war and oppression. Not only does it bring to life the turmoil and hardships that Bangladeshi people faced, but also it sheds light on the culture and nature of the people. The lengthy essay at the end of the book was a great addition since it does a great job of supporting the book’s historical accuracy. Highly recommend especially if you are historical fiction lover like me.
