In the light of ” what is it”

19 Feb

Just finished reading Zia Haider Rahman book “in the Light of What we Know, brilliantly written, however, I kept thinking. Is it a novel, a philosophy book, an encyclopedia on some minutia that I really don’t care about. BUT I kept reading hoping for a story here. A true fiction, the story of Zafar sort of gets lost or did for me. However, the writing gripped me and I kept reading hoping, but by page 219 I began to wonder if I will ever find out about the main character of the book, except through the imagined and glorified eyes of the narrator about the narrators view point and perceptions. The book is getting great reviews. Enlighten me if I have missed something significant here. I adore good fiction, but no one novel can be an everything novel.
