I am a little over halfway through Aamina Ahmad’s The Return of Faraz Ali and I am kind of struggling with it. The main character is weirdly inconsistent and the story seems to be trying to build up to some meeting/conflict that does not feel all that compelling.

While I have been growing increasingly ruthless in recent years about not continuing to invest time in novels that aren’t grabbing me after the first hundred pages, I am far enough into this one that I keep sticking with it. We’ll see… maybe a few more chapters, but there are books waiting on my TBR shelf.
