The Beautiful Lie: a radical recalibration of Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina
The story is at its best when the friends are together, their innocence and sheer boyishness leaping off the page and subtly making the point that they get along perfectly despite their different faiths. I wanted to yell at the rioting factions — "Hey, leave those kids alone!
Sadly, though, I don't think the book is entirely a success, the main problem being a lack of tension. That tends to make the story episodic, and although some of the big set-pieces are terrific — particularly the massive riot at a cockfight in the cemetery — there's no ultimate sense of resolution. But it's a good effort, and Bilal will stay in this reader's mind for a long time.
