Brick Lane: Nine Eleven

I think it was brilliant for Ali to put the 9/ll attack in this novel. She showed an entirely different perspective on it. Ali putting 9/11 in the novel from a non- US citizen point of view can actually speak volumes on the reader and where they come from. For example, as an American, I only thought about how the terrorist attack affected the US. That shows the American mindset. America only thinks about America. Looking back, it’s kind of ridiculous to think that something like that, something that devastating would only affect America. But that is the American way. Everything revolves around US.

(I tried to write on something that no one else wrote about. Sorry if this is really far off to the left.)
