Staff Reviews

A love story following two remarkable strong- willed people fleeing their unnamed country on the brink of civil war and emerging as refugees with an uncertain future trying to hang on to their history and each other. Realistic, terrifying, yet oddly hopeful. The writing comes further alive through the introduction of magical doorways. Hamid is a gifted writer, and this is a timely and urgent story. One of the best books I have read in 2017!

“Exit West will take your breath away as it magically weaves together a story of falling in love while the world falls apart. Spirited Nadia captures the heart of the thoughtful Saeed, but as their different paths in life converge, ordinary life gives way to the insults of war. Mohsin Hamid conveys the story of these young refugees with tenderness, humanizing the horrors that we too often see as merely headlines. As chaos touches so many lives around the globe, Hamid writes eloquently of the beauty found in our struggle to survive. This is more than a timely story; this is a remarkable work of art.”

Summer 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List

“This slender and compulsively readable novel will be one of the most powerful and heartbreaking reads you will encounter. It’s a story of migration and love of all kinds while also being a lesson on empathy for people robbed of their basic rights and needs. Hamid’s prose is quiet yet commanding, delivering passages and scenes unlikely to leave your subconscious. Exit West is gorgeous, timely, and desperately needed.”
