This book isn’t something I would usually pick up, but I read the summary and decided to give it a chance. Let me just say, I’m glad I did. Before reading this book, I couldn’t understand why someone would become a suicide bomber. While I haven’t fully wrapped my head around the motivations of a suicide bomber, this book definitely gave me some insight.
When I went into this book, I expected to hate Khalid, the main character. Instead, I really liked him. He certainly wasn’t your typical protagonist. Smokey, on the other hand, I couldn’t stand. Her reason for becoming a suicide bomber was incredibly stupid.
The best thing about this novel for me was how exciting it was. It seemed like there was action on every page. There was never a boring moment. My only issue with this book was the romance. I wish the author had developed it a bit more. Other than that, I enjoyed this book quite a bit.
