Mohsin Hamid: Exit West (Paperback, 2018, Large Print Press) 4 stars

Inspired by the great reviews, I probably set my hopes to high. The voice of the narrator feels too intrusive at times, and not much space is left to the single characters to speak for themselves. The writing style definitely doesn't match my preferences (coordinate clauses and unneeded adjectives all over the place). Author makes an attempt at magic realism which in my opinion isn't consistent with the the first half of the work.
