    In an unnamed Middle Eastern security state, a young Arab-Indian hacker shields his clients — dissidents, outlaws, Islamists, and other watched groups — from surveillance and tries to stay out of trouble. He goes by Alif — the first letter of the Arabic alphabet, and a convenient handle to hide behind.

    This book is a very entertaining adventure story that also gives a great picture of some serious issues, from repression in today's Arabian peninsula to the hubris of technology geeks who think that computers can solve life's basic dilemmas.

    Story
    (106)

    Frank Money is an angry, self-loathing veteran of the Korean War who, after traumatic experiences on the front lines, finds himself back in racist America with more than just physical scars. His home may seem alien to him, but he is shocked out of his crippling apathy by the need to rescue his medically abused younger sister and take her back to the small Georgia town they come from and that he's hated all his life. This is a deeply moving novel about an apparently defeated man finding his manhood - and his home.

    Melinda says: "not a novel, but a collection of short stories"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Home to be better than the print version?

    Having Morrison read her own book is so wonderful -- her quiet voice is gentle and loving in some places, conveys such quiet fury in others.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Her characters, as usual, are haunting and complicated, with sympathetic stories that make you see where their limitations come from -- and ultimately, it's racism.


    Any additional comments?

    It's always just a joy to hear Morrison's beautiful language and learn from her brilliant perceptions.
