Jihadi: A Love Story - Brandon Yusuf Toropov

Jihadi is quite simply a brilliant book. Unique in its construction, entirely mind blowing and dreadfully emotional. The apocalypse could have come upon us whilst I was reading this novel and I would not even have noticed, Yusuf Toropov just absorbs you into this story and for the entirety of it you are just engaged, befuddled, involved, twisted and turned and ultimately wrung out. Jihadi will get you in ways you won't even realise whilst you are in it my one piece of advice is be prepared for tears. Finish this on the bus at your peril....
