Khalid and Ayda are the only poetic narrators, but even the prosaic ones speak of the village as a place sure to be damned to the fires of Hell. As in the Libyan book , I was surprised to hear Muslims referring to Moses and Noah, and speaking of the narrow bridge to Paradise that not all will succeed in crossing. The mystery of why the village is so doomed kept me reading. Why do the villagers love it and hate it — often at the same time? I was particularly fond of the comic devices employed in this novel.
Its climate is snowy all year round, so European ice-skating competitions are held there. The capital of Bangladesh is Dhaka, and Muslims make up one-sixth of its population. Some of them believed what they were hearing, while others thought it preposterous. Speaking of snow, I was very surprised to read that Oman was familiar with it. Five mud houses! Elevated to a higher level than many.

I wanted to find a book about normal people lving their lives in a city or on the countryside in Paraguay, but I was not that lucky. I had no expectations at all. The coolest thing however is that someone from PNG shares my name!
I have only read one book set in Palestine before this, and to be fair I had no expectations of what kind of books I could find. I wanted to hear a female voice from Pakistan, because it has become a bit repetitive with all the male authors writing about the same issues in this region of Asia — Middle East.
