A review by cadmanreads
The Centre by Ayesha Manazir Siddiqi

  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? N/A
Very reminiscent of 'Babel' but also has a lot of different things to say. 
It is much lighter in tone especially the first half.

The mystery I liked, but the observations about life, culture and language were the more interesting elements of the book.
