Outside his flat dreaming of Egyptian actresses and keeping out of the way of the religious police. Browsing in the library I was intrigued to find a book about an African immigrant in Saudi Arabia written by an author who went through that experience himself No doubt this is what caught the publishers’ attention as well I don’t really blame them exotic locales and uniue experiences sell I’m as responsible for that trend in publishing as anyone else and so I suppose they’d be thrilled to take something like this as long as it’s minimally competent with proper grammar and scene construction and so on It does have that but otherwise isn’t a novel I’d recommendThe first person narrator Naser came to Saudi Arabia as an Eritrean refugee at age 10 When the book starts ten years later he's alienated from his family but has built a sort of life for himself he has his own apartment a job at a car wash and friends with whom he sniffs glue and drinks perfume um okay at night But due to the strict separation between genders he hasn't spoken to a woman in ten years and falls head over heels the moment a veiled girl starts dropping love notes at his feetThe relationship between Naser and the girl is at the heart of the book and disappointed me She's in love with him because of his looks; he's in love with her because she's available Which could have been promising not every fictional relationship need be a beautiful love story except that it's never acknowledged that this relationship is founded on lust and loneliness and that the chances these two are actually compatible are slight I'm willing to read a book about a pair of horny repressed desperate kids but I want to see the actual conseuences pardon the pun of that relationship rather than just being told over and over that this is some earth shaking romance And does this book ever tell rather than show I was willing to overlook some awkward exposition my fifty year old Chadian boss let me have some time off given that it's a first novel but the larger problem is the constant heavy handed effort to manipulate readers' emotions If you're already invested in Naser's plight you don't need passages like paraphrasing What would happen next What would happen to me What would happen to Fiore Would we ever see each other again whenever he's in danger And if you're not this melodramatic filler won't do the trick The repetitive flatly written and yet overwrought detailing of emotions is eually off puttingI feared going back to my lonely room I didn't want to leave her I wanted to be with her forever I didn't want to let go of her pink painted nails her parted lips I loved looking at her eyes; the fact that one was slightly smaller than the other gave the impression than she was eternally searching for something for her life As I caressed her delicate lips with my finger and gazed at her wild hair I was happy that she was my woman and I was her man We belonged to each other I thought We deserved to grow old together because we had made the impossible possible I hoped fate would be kind to usThe characters don't get much development either Naser starts off very sympathetic if not particularly vivid but later veers between seeming overly sensitive and responding to obstacles with clumsy attempts to blackmail whomever gets in his way The girl who never gets a name Naser dubs her Fiore has little personality to match Everyone else is minor and one noteThe constraints of the setting also seem to be adjusted arbitrarily as the plot reuires As an immigrant Naser's life is precarious and yet he has sufficient savings to uit his job and chase Fiore full time for months She can walk the streets alone to find Naser and drop him notes but says it's too dangerous for her to bend over and pick up his Then later they meet in public places and go off together And then he starts regularly visiting her house disguised as a woman But wait if it's inappropriate for her father the man of the house to see or speak to a female guest then why are love affairs so difficult any man whose body type might pass for a woman's when shrouded from head to toe could come and go without notice And why is Fiore's mother complicit Few parents even in the US with a completely different view of relationships are so happy to facilitate their teenage children's having sex Let alone with a virtual stranger and in a society where women are expected to be virginal at marriageThe setting though is what saves this book from total disaster It provides a vivid view of Saudi Arabia in the 1980s a country as restrictive as many a dystopia The author clearly hates that country and I'd like to read another book by a Saudi author for an insider's view but it's a fascinating setting nonethelessThis is a uick easy read with a fairly interesting plot and who knows if you consider yourself a romantic you may like it better than I did However I would not recommend it

This is a love story set around the middle east had read Finding Noufa couple of months ago and found it a much better read The Conseuences of Love A Novel is a slow book to get into and a little depressing although it is a good insight into the Saudi culture Not one of my favourite books and was glad to finish it
