    "Thoughtful, complex, worthwhile."

    Having enjoyed "The In-Between World of Vikram Lall" by the same author it pleased me to find this on Audible. I found the Assassin's Song intriguing with complex characters and topics (spirituality, religion, loyalty to family & tradition, differences between modern countries, illusion v. reality). The author's interesting style of reflective writing make it much more than the mere memoir so common in much of modern literature. This isn't an all-out happy or sad story with a 'wrap it up nicely' ending. Many of the author's simple questions in the face of life's apparent complexity are thought provoking and left unanswered. The narrator was excellent and the book moves along without lagging throughout. I prefer novels with dynamic characters who develop deeply throughout the course of a book and authors who want to take the reader through the range of human emotion and experience: M.G. Vassanji does just that.
