Bismillah,

The most obvious comments on the book would be time consuming -- the behavior is haram et cetera. 

I was surprised by a lot of things in this book.  I like reading about Bangladesh from someone who felt a love for the country in a deeply personal manner.

I would like to read more books by Muslims in which they talk about their countries in a candid, easy-to-relate-to manner.

Bismillah,

I did look in the library for it, but they didn't have it.  So I got Khalil Gibran instead.
