Reviews

A wonderful and heart-warming story of love, family and cricket. * Bookgeeks.co.uk * A strange and alluring combination of cricket, the Taliban, and a lively, clever heroine makes this novel unputdownable. * New Books * This book is funny, moving, harrowing, romantic and readable. * TheBookBag.co.uk * Cinematic descriptions of war, and the joy of cricket, score highly * Observer * Murari's novel exerts a strong emotional grip as we follow the Taliban's brutality with mounting horror. The result is an unusual mix of tension, farce and profound outrage. * Financial Times * A wonderful and revealing book * The Sun * An engaging read and a real page turner * Red *
