    "Well written, interesting, but inadequate."
    What was most disappointing about Sanjeev Sahota’s story?

    Although the writing was very good and fairly compelling. The focus remained on the superficial elements of the situation throughout. It was all about conversations and the protagonist's superficial views of the behaviour of others. At no time were the most pertinent aspects of the central theme explored. How did the protagonist's views change and what were his views that led to him agree with suicide bombing and become a willing participant? What were his thoughts, and how did he feel about agreeing to sacrifice himself and others in his own community?


    Have you listened to any of Sartaj Garewal’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No, this is the first. The quality of the narration was excellent, aside from the mispronunciation of two words. n.b. The Northern term 'mithering', meaning 'pestering' is pronounced My-ther-ing!


    Any additional comments?

    It must present a unique challenge for a well educated, well spoken author to write in the first person as someone with consistently incorrect, colloquial grammer. Sohota did so brilliantly.
