Acts of faith by Philip Caruto turned out to be one of my best reads in recent times.
Steady pace. Believable characters with many shades to their characters. Stark decriptions. Some haunting lines. Language that does not hinder the flow of narrative. All this made “Acts of faith” a very enjoyable experience for me.
I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a good read (it’s close to 600 pages long, but then, long novels don’t put me off, and neither did this disappoint), and realistic pictures (sometimes too much so). To be avoided if you hesitate to call a spade a spade.
(In some ways, I was reminded of Khaled Hosseini’s writing while reading it)
(P.S. This is a very personal opinion)
