Red BirdsAn American pilot crash lands in the desert and finds himself on the outskirts of the very camp he was supposed to bomb After days spent wandering and hallucinating from dehydration Major Ellie is rescued by one of the camp's residents a teenager named Momo whose entrepreneurial money making schemes are failing as his family is falling apart His older brother Ali le Wow this novel is greater than the sum of all of its collective parts even when those components are spectacular in their own right Firstly I wish to address the many reviewers who have labelled this as weird and just like those kids who were labelled as such throughout my school years all it really means is different If different uniue and inspired aren't words that piue your interest and feed your fascination for reading this book then I can't think what would Sumptuous and beautifully poetic Hanif's prose simply sings from the pages and truly denotes a master at work a wordsmith if you will What makes this particularly refreshing is that the author tells the story through various unusual devices including Mutt the talking dog who narrates Some people found it difficult to take this part of the plot seriously but I feel it was an ingenious move which tells the powerful tale through a different medium Despite the story being one of darkness poverty and war it encompasses so much than that with a smattering of humour interspersed throughout creating a balance and contrast between the light and dark The final denouement was also a fitting way to concludeI am a strong believer that some of the best things in life are weird and this certainly applies in the case of Red Birds I'll be going back to read Hanif's previous novels and look forward to reading of his work in the future A fully deserved five stars I'd give it if I couldMany thanks to Bloomsbury Publishing for an ARC I was not reuired to post a review and all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own
