Fidali's Way: A Novel - Taschenbuch

[EAN: 9781416556183], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: Scribner], KASHMIR, INDIA, PAKISTAN, LITERARY FICTION, TREKKING, ADVENTURE, MYSTERY, N OVEL, ISLAM, JANUARY, MASTRAS, Fiction|Mystery & Detective|General, Religion|Islam|General, Travel|Asia|India, Scribner 2009 Very Good+/ SOFTCOVER. Prerelease version. Unread, crease to back cover o/w Fine. From Nick Sunder, a disillusioned Boston lawyer, has been backpacking in Asia for more than a year when disaster strikes at the start of Mastras's stirring first novel: the police in Peshawar, Pakistan, arrest him for cutting his French girlfriend's throat. Innocent of the crime, Sunder escapes custody by killing a cop. He heads into the Himalayas on foot, and after several weeks arrives at a remote medical clinic in the Indian-controlled part of Kashmir, where he gets a job as an aid worker, falls in love with a female Muslim doctor and witnesses horrifying acts of terrorism. Mastras, a TV writer (Breaking Bad) who's trekked through Asia himself, delivers a winding, character-rich plot full of authentic detail and regional history. While sentimentality mars some passages, the odysseylike story grips. Though Sunder's nanvetT can be distracting at times, readers will cheer him along his path toward spiritual renewal, guided by the wisdom and advice of the titular Fidali, whom he meets on his journey.

Review"Recent terror attacks in Mumbai have awakened worldwide awareness of the animosity between India and Pakistan. It's unfortunate that such a tragic event would seem to benefit a chronicling that silent war. But then again, maybe it's helpful that a literate, insightful and suspenseful story brings a clearer understanding of a dirty little conflict, one with the potential to become very dangerous."-- Peter Mergendahl, Rocky Mountain News "Just when you think it's not possible to read a debut novel that offers something fresh, a comes along that catches you off-guard. Fidali's Way is a lushly written, panoramic view of the hills of Pakistan, the violent conflicts nestled within this far-flung locale and the damaged souls of its main characters - especially Nick Sunder, an American traveler looking for a sliver of meaning after a life chasing materialistic dreams. That simple goal seems to crash down with the brutal murder of his current lover and his escape to the village of Gilkamosh after police suspicion prompts a horrifying interrogation. Nick is the story's linchpin, but its soul is Aysha, a beautiful young woman whose quest to study and practice medicine puts her at odds with her deeply fundamentalist community. The caldron stirs its ingredients to a boiling point, producing endinges of violence that leave impact lasting like a brand placed on unwelcoming skin." -- The Baltimore Sun --The Baltimore Sun, January 4th, 2009

Fidali's Way - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 9781416556183

ID: 6237337

A thrilling, epic novel about a young American man who is arrested for murder in Pakistan and narrowly escapes through the Himalayas, experiencing war, love, and revelation along the way. Disillusioned with American life, Nicholas Sunder has spent months backpacking through South Asia, most recently in the company of a beautiful French woman he met in India. When the woman is found brutally murdered in the Tribal Areas of Pakistan, Nick is arrested and tortured by the Pakistani police, who are convinced he is the killer. Amazingly, Nick escapes their custody and heads off on foot through the steep mountains of Kashmir, the highest war zone on earth. Now a fugitive without papers, money, or a country that will welcome him, Nick is reduced to his most elemental human identity in an unforgiving mountainous landscape where his very survival is unlikely. Nick's fortune turns when he encounters an eccentric Kashmiri smuggler and his mysterious companion, Fidali. An enormous, nearly silent man, Fidali not only knows a hidden way through the mountains but makes a deep impression upon Nick through his sacrifices for others. In time, after barely surviving great violence, Nick reaches an idyllic mountain village in Indian-occupied Kashmir, where he is drawn to Aysha, a remarkable woman unlike any he has ever met, who operates a medical clinic in the remote region. It is there he will confront the divide between Islam and the West and be forced to ponder how he has reached such a place -- forced to consider, in other words, Fidali's way. Drawn from the author's own experiences trekking through Asia, "Fidali's Way" brims with George Mastras's deep knowledge of the Himalayan region. He has walked the lands, climbed the mountains, and met the diverse peoples who call the high Himalayas their home. Few American authors have traveled as extensively as Mastras has through these remote, dangerous, and unstable places, and his personal insight is evident on every page. Not only a powerful suspense story, "Fidali's Way" is a timely exploration of a politically complex region and a meditation on some of the most important issues of our time: the relationship between Islam and the West, the ruthlessness of fanatical religion, and the redemptive power of pure faith. Sweeping in its scope and moral complexity, "Fidali's Way" brings forth a story that only an ambitious, large-hearted novel can tell and introduces George Mastras as a major new American novelist.
