Review:
Aslam's novels inhabit a sensuous, ornate realm in which the grim realities of the modern world occassinally burst forth. Source: The Sunday Times

'An eye-opening, heartbreaking novel . . . Reminded me of Conrad's Nostromo.' Source: Stephen King

[Aslam is] an exceptionally gifted writer ... The Blind Man's Garden is an impressive accomplishment; a gripping and moving piece of storytelling that gets the calamitous first act in the "War on Terror" on to the page with grace, intelligence and rare authenticity. Author: James Lasdun Source: Guardian

Once or twice a year, a book stuns me. Nadeem Aslam's fourth novel, The Blind Man's Garden, has done just that. My expectations were high: Aslam has won a clutch of prizes. But the power of this extraordinary novel is still jarring ... The poignancy is gut-wrenching ... Man Booker judges: don't miss this. Source: Independent on Sunday

Aslam's painstaking writing process - he works in isolation and self-edits heavily - renders the prose breath-taking, describing sometimes beautiful, sometimes wretched landscapes. It is this hypnotic style that gives Aslam's imagined universe an other-worldly quality ... Aslam has proven himself adept at showing the struggles within Islam, particularly the tension between extremist Islam and its counterpoint, and he does so most powerfully here ... It beguiles. Source: Independent

The Blind Man's Garden is most impressive in its stitching together of dramatic ironies, often under the star of sensuality and underlined by a stripe of brutality ... there is much to admire in Nadeem Aslam's new book. Source: TLS

Aslams powerful new novel ... beautifully evokesvarying places and cultures, portraying different versions of love and loyalty, extremism and cruelty. Source: Prospect

[The Blind Man's Garden] might just be his masterpiece. Source: Yorkshire Post

Aslam's powerful fourth novel ... is delicate and lyrical, rish in flowers, birds, stars .... A novel that is as violent as it is perversely beautiful ... his prose is gloriously seductive ... There is no disputing the passion and urgency of Nadeem Aslams work. Its elegantly raw humanity appeals to the soul, as does this fractures, important novel. Source: The Irish Times

Pages of fine-crafted prose ... A gripping work that goes to the heart of Muslim fanaticism and Pentagon intransigence alike. Aslam is a wonderful talent and we are lucky to have him. Source: Sunday Telegraph
