The Reluctant Fundamentalist - Mohsin Hamid A beautifully written story of a Pakistani man, educated at Princeton, who has a well-paid job in NYC on 9/11. He has seemingly accepted the materialistic lifestyle of the rich American, but over the next year he gradually changes his viewpoint. It shows clearly how many citizens of other countries view our interventionist policy. The question I kept asking is, "Why does our country think it has the right to interfere in other countries' politics?" This book is touching, but thought provoking.
