This one starts off simply enough as a noir detective story with a private investigator hired to find the creator of the fictional character, Osama Bin Laden. However, those looking for a quick, mystery plot will be disappointed as the story quickly becomes a surreal journey as the main character struggles to understand how this fictional world, which is really our world, a world of terrorists, suicide bombers, and other things, can possibly exist. There are even suggestions that our world and the world of the novel are far more intertwined that we think. Not a book for everyone, but one worth checking out.
Being written on the tenth anniversary of 9/11, Osama can also be considered a tribute to the victims of that terrible day.
