The Reluctant Fundamentalist - Mohsin Hamid

Light reads more often than not deal with light subjects, though as set forth by Hamid this is by no means a foregone conclusion. 
Indeed; depression, suicide, fundamentalism, aloofness and corporate America are all prominent themes in this life-story (not wholly different from 'How To Get Filthy Rich...').

'The Reluctant Fundamentalist' qualifies as a light read because of its weight (a modest 200 pages), its approachability and fluid narrative style.

I realize my topic list above may not appear very engaging, yet for all its lightness in form and gravity in subject, this was both perceptive and pleasurable!
