Incendiary by Chris Cleave
“I just finished Chris Cleave’s Incendiary. This was Cleave’s first novel (he also wrote Gold and Little Bee). It is an intense and moving portrait of a distraught British woman surviving the aftermath of one of Osama Bin Laden’s (fictional) attacks. The book is written as a letter to Osama Bin Laden after her four-year-old son and her husband are killed in a massive suicide bomb attack at a soccer match in London. This is not a pretty story, and the main character is far from perfect. This novel is of the same style as Cleave’s second book, Little Bee, a powerfully heartbreaking story about a painful topic we’d prefer not to think about”.
